Proverbs 28:26 says, "whoever trusts in his own mind is a fool, but he who walks in wisdom will be delivered."
When I first started this blog back in 2013 I named it, In Sharon's Head and about two years ago I changed it to, In Sharon's Heart. You know why? Because this head of mine has gotten me in a bind or two regarding the things I acted on that didn't have my best interest. I relied more on my mind than what God placed in my heart. And I realized that it was wiser to go with God than with Sharon. Although things have not turned out perfect -- they never will -- they turned out much better than they would have if God were not a part of them. I made foolish decisions and just as the scripture above says, it was because I trusted more in myself than walking in the wisdom of the Lord.
I'm glad it finally sank in that God was the better choice 100% of the time. I'm glad God had patience with me in trying to get this walk right. Of course, like all of us, I'm still a big time WIP (Work in Progress), but at least I know that God was with me all the time and remains with me today. I'm in a much better place, because it is in God I trust now and forever more.
