Proverbs 3:5-6 says, "Trust in the Lord with all your heart And do not lean on your own understanding.  In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He will make your path straight".  How tough is it to NOT lean on our own understanding?  To NOT give in to feelings of despair, depression, fear, anxiety, lust, etc. 

It is so important that I recognize that my "own understanding" is so very often wrong, especially as compared to my heavenly father's understanding.  Trust comes from doing what I know is right, not so much what I feel at the time. Often feelings are just that, feelings.  God has given us the ability and opportunity to decide what to do with our feelings, He also gives us the strength as well.

As someone who will often hide my concnres behind an I'm fine! comment, I found this sermon really helpful. Instead of saying nothing Sunday afternoon I shared with my son that I felt hurt at not being asked to a forthcoming event, even though I knew it wasn't meant to be hurtful, and it felt so much better to verbalise and release it. I also had the bonus of a lovely hug!
