In these posts I will be interacting with Scripture – making it a conversational walk of faith.

Sometimes we'll be talking with Jesus, sometimes God will be talking with us.

There might even be *guest appearances* by some of our beloved characters from the Bible!

So put on your walking shoes – you know we can all use the exercise!



Entrust, consign, hand over, assign, transfer the responsibility to, let go of in trust…

to the Lord…

The Sovereign Ruler of the Universe, the Author of Divine Providence, the Master Planner, the Omnipotent and Omniscient One…

whatever you do…

Actions, thoughts, feelings, prayers, your coming and your going, the good stuff and the bad stuff…

and He…

Not you – not in all your ways of attempting to manipulate life, of trying to control circumstances and situations, of struggling to influence and change people or relationships…


In His power, His might, His complete ability to do more than we can ask or think…


Confirm, cause to grow, sustain, support, affirm, strengthen, make more certain…

your plans…

Your dreams, your hopes, your expectations – for your plans will become HIS plans, and your desires will align with HIS will.

Proverbs 16:3 (NIV)

"It is a very desirable thing to have our thoughts established, and not tossed, and put into a hurry, by disquieting cares and fears,—to go on in an even steady course of honesty and piety, not disturbed, or put out of frame, by any event or change,—to be satisfied that all shall work for good and issue well at last, and therefore to be always easy and sedate. The only way to have our thoughts established is to commit our works to the Lord. The great concerns of our souls must be committed to the grace of God, with a dependence upon and submission to the conduct of that grace; all our outward concerns must be committed to the providence of God, and to the sovereign, wise, and gracious disposal of that providence. Roll thy works upon the Lord (so the word is); roll the burden of thy care from thyself upon God. Lay the matter before him by prayer. Make known thy works unto the Lord (so some read it), not only the works of thy hand, but the workings of thy heart; and then leave it with him, by faith and dependence upon him, submission and resignation to him. The will of the Lord be done. We may then be easy when we resolve that whatever pleases God shall please us." - (From commentary by Matthew Henry)

"…for I know the one in whom I trust, and I am sure that he is able to guard what I have entrusted to him until the day of his return."
(2 Timothy 1:12, NLT)

"Trust (lean on, rely on, and be confident) in the Lord…Delight yourself also in the Lord, and He will give you the desires and secret petitions of your heart. Commit your way to the Lord [roll and repose each care of your load on Him]; trust (lean on, rely on, and be confident) also in Him and He will bring it to pass." (Psalm 37:3-5, AMP)

  1. Have a blessed weekend, love you.

  2. I'm stopping by to say hello and wishing you a happy St. Pat's day! sandie

  3. Matthew Henry is one of my favorites. I love what your shared from him on this one.

    I'm very convicted upon reading this about committing my thoughts and plans. In truth, I will regularly commit the outcome, but I DO have a plan in my head the whole time of how I want it to work out. I need to prayerfully work on that area.

  4. I loved your Saturday stroll, Sharon.
    Wanda mentioned it on her Blog today.

  5. Thanks, Sharon . . . really needed this . . .


  6. Thanks for taking us on this inspiring stroll.


"So [I] have been greatly encouraged in the midst of [my] troubles and suffering, dear brothers and sisters, because you have remained strong in your faith. It gives [me] new life to know that you are standing firm in the Lord. How [I] thank God for you!" (1 Thessalonians 3:7-9)
