Trust God from the bottom of your heart;
don’t try to figure out everything on your own;
Listen for God’s voice on everything you do, everywhere you go;
He’s the one who will keep you on track.
Don’t assume that you know it all.
Run to God! Run from evil!
Your Body will glow with health,
Your very bones will vibrate with Life!
Proverbs 3:5-6 The Message Translation
