A favourite quote

There are lots of quotes that I tend to turn but if I'm thinking favourites it would have to be from my favourite book, yep I'm talking about the Bible....

Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
and lean not on your own understanding.
In all your ways acknowledge him,
and he will make your paths straight.

I think that is actually a mixture of the NIV and RSV versions of the Proverbs 3:5-6. As a child I remember learning these verses but they were in more of a rhyme:

Trust in the Lord with all your heart.
Never rely on what you think you know.
Remember the Lord in everything you do
and he'll show you the right way to go.

I guess part of why this would be a favourite of mine is the reminder that it's not all about me and that trusting in God will help make the choices clearer even if it wont necessarily make them easier.
