Future Hope

Yesterday, we talked a little bit about how in a canoe, only one person can lead the steering.  Yes, it may be incredibly challenging to surrender control, but when it comes to letting go and trusting God, below is one of my favorite assortment of verses from Proverbs.  I’m fairly certain I’ve referenced these before, but since my first year of college nearly 10 years ago, these little nuggets have been an invaluable lifeline to me: 
The king’s heart is in the hand of the Lord;
    he directs it like a watercourse wherever he pleases.
My (daughter), give me your heart
    and let your eyes keep to my ways…
There is surely a future hope for you,
    and your hope will not be cut off. 
Proverbs 21:1, Proverbs 23: 26, 18
