Proverbs 3:5-6 Trust in the LORD with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight.
I was asked by Pastor Don, to provide May 2014 devotionals for our New Hope web site. The first thought I had when asked was fear, I wondered, can I do this or not, can I come up with enough material, can I offer that which will be meaningful and helpful to others, but trusting in the Lord, I agreed to the opportunity. As I began to reflect back on the years of my walk with Him and at times my rebellion against my Lord, I began to think, I just might be able to do this, so here we go! I am sure I will be praying about this often from now, until the devotionals are done.
I will begin by sharing a few of many verses with you that meant a lot to me over the years. I will not comment on them at this time, but am sure they will come up as the month proceeds. During your own bible reading time you might want to read the scripture and study the text around them. May they bless you as they did me.
