May the Lord direct our hearts…

2 Thessalonians 3:5

“May the Lord direct your hearts into the love of God and into the steadfastness of Christ.”

– “God is fully trustworthy. I am finally learning this.  I’m finally learning that His sovereign plan is the best plan. That whatever I entrust to Him, He can take care better than I.  That nothing under His control can ever be out of control. That everything I need, He knows about in every detail.  That He is able to supply, to guide, to  start, to stop, to sustain, to change, and to correct in His time and for His purposes.  When I keep my hands out of things, His will is accomplished, His name is exalted, and His glory is magnified.”
