Trust in the Lord

Divine Mercy Sunday

Divine Mercy Sunday

The Book of Proverbs presents many wonderful sayings collected over the years and sung through the ages. Many such sayings have become household mantras and personal guideposts. One such saying comes from the Book of Proverbs 3:5-6: Trust in the LORD with all your heart, on your own intelligence do not rely; In all your ways be mindful of him, and he will make straight your paths.”

Expressed in many ways, these same two verses appear in many prayer books, hymnals and religious literature. This version touches me:  “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge him and he will direct your path.”

I conclude with, “The Lord is kind and merciful. Slow to anger and overflowing in kindness.” This is Divine Mercy Sunday. Let us say, “Jesus we trust in you.”
