Trust in the Lord always 

Proverbs 16New Living Translation (NLT)16

We can make our own plans,
    but the Lord gives the right answer.

2

People may be pure in their own eyes,
    but the Lord examines their motives.

3

Commit your actions to the Lord,
    and your plans will succeed.

4

The Lord has made everything for his own purposes,
    even the wicked for a day of disaster.

5

The Lord detests the proud;
    they will surely be punished.

6

Unfailing love and faithfulness make atonement for sin.
    By fearing the Lord, people avoid evil.

7

When people’s lives please the Lord,
    even their enemies are at peace with them.

8

Better to have little, with godliness,
    than to be rich and dishonest.

9

We can make our plans,
    but the Lord determines our steps.

10

The king speaks with divine wisdom;
    he must never judge unfairly.

11

The Lord demands accurate scales and balances;
    he sets the standards for fairness.

12

A king detests wrongdoing,
    for his rule is built on justice.

13

The king is pleased with words from righteous lips;
    he loves those who speak honestly.

14

The anger of the king is a deadly threat;
    the wise will try to appease it.

15

When the king smiles, there is life;
    his favor refreshes like a spring rain.

16

How much better to get wisdom than gold,
    and good judgment than silver!

17

The path of the virtuous leads away from evil;
    whoever follows that path is safe.

18

Pride goes before destruction,
    and haughtiness before a fall.

19

Better to live humbly with the poor
    than to share plunder with the proud.

20

Those who listen to instruction will prosper;
    those who trust the Lord will be joyful.

21

The wise are known for their understanding,
    and pleasant words are persuasive.

22

Discretion is a life-giving fountain to those who possess it,
    but discipline is wasted on fools.

23

From a wise mind comes wise speech;
    the words of the wise are persuasive.

24

Kind words are like honey—
    sweet to the soul and healthy for the body.

25

There is a path before each person that seems right,
    but it ends in death.

26

It is good for workers to have an appetite;
    an empty stomach drives them on.

27

Scoundrels create trouble;
    their words are a destructive blaze.

28

A troublemaker plants seeds of strife;
    gossip separates the best of friends.

29

Violent people mislead their companions,
    leading them down a harmful path.

30

With narrowed eyes, people plot evil;
    with a smirk, they plan their mischief.

31

Gray hair is a crown of glory;
    it is gained by living a godly life.

32

Better to be patient than powerful;
    better to have self-control than to conquer a city.

33

We may throw the dice,[a]
    but the Lord determines how they fall.
I was going through a bad couple of days. In the midst of the stress I have been praying to God asking for guidance.

So at work the other day I was feeling down and needed a boast.

I opened my bible and read this passage which was a reminder of what I needed. God told me to calm down, step back, leave it in his hands. I got this, I got you and all will work out. Though in the midst of our struggles we know to rely and trust in God, a gentle reminder is always a humbling experience

In the midst of the storm, in the most unexpected place he calmed my soul, my anxieties and was able to provide for me. I am beyond grateful what God has been able to provide. I feel like a weight was lifted. Now I can enjoy the changes that was presented before us without the extra unneeded anxiety. God never falters, he always provides.

Father God I thank you for guiding me. I thank you for reminding me, that you have all control. I trust in you dear Lord… in the midst of the storm, always and forever. Amen!
