Witty Wednesday!

I love quotes. Like, lovelovelovelovelove them. As a result, I've decided to try something a little different. Every Wednesday, whenever I am able to write a new post, I will post a quote that has spoken to me in some way. The quotes may or may not be entirely witty. However, they will certainly have special meaning to me, and I hope that they will inspire y'all, as well! And so we begin...

"Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
"In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths."
--Proverbs 3:5-6

Those who know me best probably see me as the biggest worry wart in the entire history of worry warts. Seriously. I worry about anything and everything. School. Work. School. Career. School. Dating. School. Friends...the list goes on and on and on.

Earlier this afternoon, I had to have a mole on my hairline removed. I'd had two removed before, so I had an idea of what the procedure was going to be like, but I'd passed out on one of them. Of course, that episode was going through my head all day up until I went to the clinic...just what I needed. Once I got settled and everything, though, it was no biggie, and now I'm sitting here wondering why in the world I was so anxious about that little procedure!!

Sorry, that probably isn't the best real-life example, haha, but hopefully y'all see where I'm going with this! Just like the doctors who stitched me back up today, Heavenly Father knows what He's doing up there. I just have to learn to put my trust in Him. My mom always says that half of the things we worry about never even happen, and I'm starting to think that's true...

Your mother's right :) I used to be a lot like that too, just worrying about everything going on and about the future; but I've learned to be much more relaxed and trusting that everything will work out somehow if I just focus getting done what I need to do. If we listen to and do what the Lord asks of us, then He will take care of us.
