As you can see, this weeks email is super late lol. I was getting a little anxious because the day is coming to an end and I hadn’t given you any encouragement from the Lord. But God!

I pray about the messages I send you; I meditate, think, read different verses and all that… but today God’s timing was definitely on point.

So, you know that downpour we got today? It caused our downstairs to flood! So as I’m helping my husband dry things and clean things I begin to get really irritated 😤 I’m in my head saying things like, “I wouldn’t do it that way!” As I was contemplating on how to tell him a “better” way to do things, this scripture came to my mind:

“Trust in and rely confidently on the Lord with all your heart And do not rely on your own insight or understanding. In all your ways know and acknowledge and recognize Him, And He will make your paths straight and smooth [removing obstacles that block your way].”

‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭3:5-6‬ ‭AMP‬‬ 🤯

I then prayed, “Lord, how can I help him? He is obviously frustrated. I don’t want to add to his frustration by my flippant attitude, or try to control how we clean up. Help me help him Lord.”

Can I tell you how that began to change my heart!?!?!  How God redirected me, and got me outta my own knowledge, once I acknowledged Him! He showed me a path that didn’t involve arguing or me ending up having to apologize for saying something off the cuff, and also exposed a little pride. My way isn’t the only way, and neither is my husband’s way, but even aside from him, I need to consult God in everything, down every minute detail… why? So He can make my paths straight and smooth.

I ask you Sis, are you acknowledging God in all your ways?

Lord help us 🙏🏽
