Leaning

This past Sunday, Josh Harris spoke at Metro Life Church on the topic of “Trusting in the Lord” taken from Proverbs 3:5-6.  It was a great message and one worth keeping.  One point that has stayed with us is the verse,  “lean not on your own understanding”.

Josh pointed out the type of leaning the Bible talks about here isn’t a light leaning, but it is an all-your-weight kind of leaning.  It’s leaning so far that if the one on whom you’re leaning were to move you would surely fall.  It’s the kind that makes you feel off balance, and it not only leaves you feeling vulnerable, but uncomfortable.

Tom and I have experienced this type of trouble where all you could do was lean.  What a blessing it was to be able to lean on each other as well as on the Lord.  Although uncomfortable, you know you’re safe.

In these troubled times it’s not surprising if you’re finding yourself off balance.  God is our rock and our refuge, and He alone can support us no matter the trouble.  He will never be shaken.  Why not take some time and talk about this on your next date night.  Ask your spouse how they’re doing, and then, be honest and share the same.

As a bonus, you may want to listen to Josh’s message before your date.  You’ll find it by clicking HERE.
