Hi Angie,

This is an older post and I don't normally post here, but this Proverb really intrigued me.

Hi. Thanks for stopping by. I looked through a couple of study bibles and my feeling/thoughts on this passage is Trust in the Lord...means to commit your way to the Lord. I think that the next part of the passage means to not lean on my own understanding of the world or my own way of thinking about things, but to acknowledge God (bring all my cares, concerns, actions, thoughts) to Him. (this is my own thoughts/understanding of the passage.....I have never studied theology, but I have a friend here at iVillage that has.....I will ask her to stop by and give us her thoughts. )

I am so glad to hear that this proverb touched your heart. I am so glad that it could bring you comfort. I enjoyed reading through Proverbs the month I did. So glad you are giving the Bible another look. I will pray for the questions you have to be answered and that you are drawn closer in your relationship with Him. Keep us updated on how you are doing.

Thank you for your prayers. :)

Would you mind if I came in here to discuss different verses in the Bible?

Sorry I missed this post somehow! It is a bit quiet here lately. I do use the New International Version of the Bible. I have a study bible, which has notes under the section of verses that sometimes helps me to understand what I am reading. I have a NKJ version as well that I refer to.

I usually get my bibles online at Christianbook

I would not mind at all if you come here to discuss verses. I would love to chat with you. :)

I have never seen that Bible. I like the idea of being able to have both versions together. Let me know what you think when you receive it.
