Apparently men aren’t too excellent at this....and I understand why, because we hold onto the deceptive notion that confidence alone will supply all the answers we need to get us to our destination!
Similarly, painting continues to teach me some humbling lessons - when I am lost and without direction t here is seldom anyone to ask except God... and I confess that I am not the best hearer even when He does speak! Listening itself is a fine art. Let alone trusting and obeying.
One of my favourite verses is from Proverbs 3:5-6
"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 paths straight."
