Over the past couple of weeks life has been rather testing. The stress levels have been quite high and my faith levels have been at a low. But God is forever faithful and I have learnt over the years to put my faith in Him. Sometimes it takes these kind of moments to remind us of what a faithful God we serve.

Three particular verses from Proverbs keep me going when times are tough:

Proverbs 3:5-6
‘Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.’

Proverbs 3:23
‘Then you will go on your way in safety, and your foot will not stumble.’

Proverbs 16:9
‘In their hearts humans plan their course, but the Lord establishes their steps.’

I love the book of Proverbs. Such wise words that encourage us and keep us going. No wonder it is known as a wisdom book of the Bible. May these three verses encourage you in your walk with the Lord and may your faithful step be a big stride in the right direction.
