If you are reading with me, today we are on Proverbs 3. (Remembering what to read in the Proverbs is as easy as remembering the day’s date when you read them with me.) That being said:
Today’s Reading: Proverbs 3
Using the SOAP devotional method, here’s what I heard this time…
Scripture: Proverbs 3:6
In all your ways acknowledge him,
and he will make straight your paths.
Reach out to Him always, in everything, and He will be right there to help.
Life as mom, and life as a startup CEO, can be lonely. I feel as though I am constantly forging new ground. There are so many unexpected journeys, so many times that I feel like I am reaching beyond myself to get done what needs to get done. So many times that my path is jumbled and I am not sure what to do first and second because everything seems to important.
I bet I’m not the only one who feels that way. I bet so many others feel that frustration and loneliness and confusion at times in whatever roles they play, too.
When I remember to reach out to Him, to cry out in frustration or call out and ask for guidance and comfort, so often I see Him. I see Him in the struggle, guiding me, comforting me, and I see Him in the solution or answer– even when those answers aren’t the ones I want right now.
Lord, I need your help. I need my paths to be made straight. I need to know how to order my tasks. I’m a bit overwhelmed, but I know you can help. Please, Lord, make straight my paths. Show me what to do. I am yours.
Thank you for this reassurance that you are here, listening. And that you will guide me.
I love you.
Here is what I have heard in the past when reading Proverbs this way and using SOAP:
- Wisdom and Understanding Are More Important than Wealth (Proverbs 3:13-14)
- His Understanding or Mine? (Proverbs 3:5)
- If You Can Help, Help Promptly (Proverbs 3:28)
