Direct Path

 “Trust[1] in the Lord with all thine heart[2]; and lean[3] not unto thine own understanding[4]. In all thy ways[5] acknowledge[6] him, and he shall direct[7] thy paths[8].” - Proverbs 3:5,6 KJV

Proverbs 3:5,6 THV Version

5) Confidently set your trust and hope in The Self-Existing Source of Life with your full courage and deepest feeling. Don’t consider yourself fully supported by your own way of thinking, rationalizing and judging. Don’t even begin to think your logic and skill are completely reliable.

6) As you continue on your journey, be increasingly aware, perceiving and further acquainted with your Guide, The Initiator and Parent of the Universe. Your relationship will allow your life to be straightened and leveled out as a pleasant and prosperous path. It will take your directly to your destination with fewer detours, pit-stops, wandering, and doubling-back.
