Don’t Try So Hard

Trust God from the bottom of your heart; 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.
(Proverbs 3: 5)

I’m comforted today knowing God knows me better than I know myself. I can trust Him for a future I know nothing about. I can dream and plan and take steps for a productive life; but if I don’t hear God’s voice every day, my life will lack purpose.

What if I could go through this entire day listening for God’s voice in everything I do instead of trying so hard to please Him? Realizing God delights in me frees me to delight in Him and in myself and others.

If you have a few minutes, listen to this song: Don’t Try So Hard.
