“Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
And lean not on your own understanding;
In all your ways acknowledge Him,
And He shall make straight your paths

I am not a very patient person. I never have been, and I probably never will be. Somehow, this is the verse that speaks the most to me. There are so many things that I wanted to happen this last year, and so many things that I am waiting on. As someone who would rather get everything done herself right away, life can get really frustrating that way.

I think this verse speaks to me so much because it represents the kind of life that I want to lead. I think it tells of a trust that is lacking in my life sometimes. Sure, there are times when I feel at ease with God and all that he has given me, but there are lots of other times when I worry. I worry about getting to do everything it is that I want to be able to do, and love everything that I want to be able to love.

This semester, I’ve learned that so many things are out of my hands. That trust is so hard on one’s heart. Everything is in place for a reason though, and I cannot wait to see what those reasons are.
