Project 52:9



Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; Acknowledge Him in all your ways and He will make your path straight
Proverbs 3:5-6

That was the verse from church this past Sunday and it is one of the key verses for my life.  This is a verse that I learned early on that I refer to often especially in recent years being at an age where big things are happening in my life, from graduating nursing school, starting my first job, moving to Houston, getting married, switching jobs, buying a house, having a baby, making new friends...I could go on, but this verse is so important because events and opportunities come up in my life and how do I differentiate something that I want to do verse something God wants me to do.  I refer to this verse and pray about it and I know that God is in control and I have turned my life over to him and I know that if something is meant to be he will make it happen.

For example, I had always wanted to go to Africa and in total random one day a few years back a new friend came in to my life who was getting ready to start prepping for a mission trip to Uganda.  I told her I was interested in going to Africa one day and she said why not now? I had no good answer for her and I prayed about it and everything literally fell into place including the fact that I did not have enough money for the trip and randomly the week the money was due someone made a donation to the mission fund at church and that completed the amount I needed in order to go.  The whole time I would worry and then remember that if God wanted me to go He would make it happen.

The path that God makes straight may only be the very next step but if I lean on him and trust that He is in control (which, is so not easy sometimes) He will make that next step clear to me, It doesn't say the whole path all at once, but maybe just the very next step in my path, this gives me great peace in my life and also one more reason why sometimes its best to just lean on God and live in the moment one day at a time.

Oh sweet girl I love this verse too. It is so true we need to be gentle to ourselves and just let him be truly in control! As humans and as life happens sometimes I feel overwhelmed but I too lean on him!!

You are going to Uganda? I went on a mission trip when I was 19 for 2 weeks there! It's AMAZING!!!! I have wanted to go back ever since the day I got back from the trip. This trip will change your life! I want to hear more about the details!

I'm Katie a 27 year old mommy and wife. Welcome to my blog where I will chronicle the happenings of my life as I find the balance between being both SAHM by day and CVICU nurse by night.

I love Jesus and strive to be more like Christ every day. Running, reading, and cooking are some of my favorite past-times. I love photography but I am no pro, but it helps I have such a cute subject to practice on!!
