and do not lean on your own understanding.
and he will make straight your paths.
Be not wise in your own eyes;
fear the LORD, and turn away from evil.
It will be healing to your flesh
and refreshment to your bones...
My son, do not despise the LORD's discipline
or be weary of his reproof,
for the LORD reproves him whom he LOVES,
as a father the son in whom he delights.
O Father, do this work in me! continue to reveal when i am placing my hope in myself, in circumstances, in others. lead me to repentance, and sing over me louder than the devil's lies of condemnation. thank you that when i come to you, i am forgiven. freely, immediatly, forever! justified by grace. sanctified by grace. please, give me a heart that loves you and rests in your Soveriegn goodness. i need you. i cannot help myself, i cannot make myself rest.
O God, thank you! i believe You are leading me to a sweet place of rest. of trusting, of joy, of peace. oh the thought of peace...
