MANY TIMES in your past, you thought you could do life on your own. You often relied on your own strength instead of on God’s. Know that God wants to help you get through the hardships of today and every day. Trust the only One who gives you renewed strength for the journey.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding.
—Proverbs 3:5 (NIV)
