My favorite verse, Proverbs 3:5-6 - from The Message translation:
Trust God from the bottom of your heart;"Listen for God's voice in everything you do, everywhere you go." I like how this is phrased; in everything and everywhere. I still exert too much control here. No wonder I keep derailing.
don't try to figure out everything on your own.
Listen for God's voice in everything you do, everywhere you go;
he's the one who will keep you on track.
My mind is like a dimmer switch on a light bulb and my hand is on the control. I can go from very intense listening to merely half-hearted listening in just a matter of seconds. I turn that knob way too often; quieting God's voice when it doesn't suit me. What I need to do is set it on high and then remove my hand.
But control is so hard to give up.
