Trust

Recently, as I was reading my Bible, I came across the very familiar verse that so many of you have memorized.  The verse is "Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not unto your own understanding, but acknowledge Him in all your ways and He shall direct your paths." Well, as I was reading these familiar verses, the word ‘all’ just really stuck out in my mind and in my heart. I thought how hard it is to truly trust with ALL of our hearts and not to lean on our own understanding. So, in the process of thinking about these verses for a few days, God began to teach me to thank Him for those closed doors that so often happen when we're praying. Even when we're praying, expecting something to happen and then it doesn't happen, to be able to say thank you, God, for closing that door because I know the door that you have for me is so much better than what I had planned.
