Something to think about.
5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
and do not lean on your own understanding.
6 In all your ways acknowledge him,
and he will make straight your paths.
Proverbs 3:5-6 (ESV)
Notice it says straight not straighten or straightened. We need to lean on him, acknowledge Him before we start down any path. We need to look forward to where He leads rather than go back and try to find where we got lost.
