Encouragement

Here's some encouragement a friend at Seacoast (my church) gave me last night:

Proverbs 13:12
"Hope deferred makes the heart sick, but a longing fulfilled is a tree of life
."

and...

Proverbs 16:9
"In his heart a man plans his course, but the Lord determines his steps (and makes them sure!)."


The first verse especially speaks to me... I feel like my hope as been deferred (delayed). I long for my dreams to be fulfilled. But then the second verse is convicting. I can plan all I want to, but God knows what is best for me. It's just so hard to trust Him at times.

I hope these verses encouraged your heart as it did mine!
