All the time.....
Proverbs 3:5-6 says, "Trust in the Lord with all of your heart, do lean not unto your own understanding. In all of your ways acknowledge the Lord, and He will make your paths straight."
Sounds easy, huh?
Well, yesterday, I didn't do that. I trusted in my own efforts (made a conscious decision to do so) and today, I paid for it. Turns out, I worked all day long yesterday on a project. And I mean worked hard on it! Well, since I had decided that it was a "no brainer" and I didn't need God's help, I totally messed it up. Wasted the entire day yesterday, which affected two other entities in the work that they have to do to clean it all up.
But, God is good; all the time. All the time, God is good.
It wasn't as bad as it could have been and the one for whom it meant the most work turned out to be a gracious woman of God who has forgiven and already fixed the problem that it present to her. I contacted the other entitiy and they hadn't completed the task on their end and was able to stop her staff from entering any more data, which would have ended up being double work for them.
Thank you God for looking out for me. You are such an awesome God!
