Lean on Me

I asked for this devotional for Christmas.  It's Jesus Calling by Sarah Young (the 10th anniversary edition.)

I was telling a friend just yesterday how self-doubt is very real in me.  It causes me to be indecisive way more often than I'd like to admit--I'm afraid to make decisions sometimes because I'm afraid I'll regret those decisions.  Regret is the worst!  I'm constantly on the hunt for the perfect answer that will lead to the perfect outcome.  That's a heavy load to carry around, and it's draining. 

And then this morning, I read this...

"Don't waste energy regretting."  Y'all, it's so precious when the Lord shows up and reminds us of His truths and promises.  


"Trust is like a staff you can lean on as you journey uphill with Me."  The more I lean, the more He props me up until eventually, He's carrying all my weight.  That's a pretty powerful image if you stop and think about it.  So, I'm going to keep that snapshot in my mind as I lean into and trust Proverbs 3:5-6!
