Trust in the Lord always 

Proverbs 16New Living Translation (NLT)16

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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


Pride goes before destruction,
    and haughtiness before a fall.


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


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


Scoundrels create trouble;
    their words are a destructive blaze.


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


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


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


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


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


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!
