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.
This is one of my “anchor” verses because of it’s great promise. These few steps are pretty simple…. trust Him with all of your heart, don’t rely on human understanding (which can be faulty), acknowledge Him in every area of life and He will straighten the path ahead. It may be rocky at times, but certainly it will be straight.
I pray the prodigal is learning how to straighten out the messy path they may find themselves on by acknowledging God in every area of life. I also pray they have figured out that their understanding might be flawed and how trusting Him can bring new revelation from the Holy Spirit.
