Proverbs 3:5  Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding.
6  In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.

~When we can't THINK of ANSWERS, we can TRUST THE ANSWER!

A - Acceptance of God’s Unchanging, Unconditional Love

"For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life...shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord." (Romans 8:38-39)

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” (John 3:16)

God’s Love Does Not Change and is Available for ALL!!

V - Voyage to Eternity

"And this is the promise that he hath promised us, even eternal life." (1 John 2:25)

“The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.” (John 10:10)

Christ Came to Give Us ETERNAL LIFE (not eternal death)!!

E - Empathy for the Brokenhearted

"The Lord is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit." (Psalm 34:18)

God Saves Those Who Need & Call On Him!!

R - Resurrection’s Promise

"For the Lord himself shall descend from heaven...and the dead in Christ shall rise first." (1 Thessalonians 4:16)

Physical Death Is Not As Final As It Appears!!

I - Interwoven Purpose

"And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God." (Romans 8:28)

"To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven." (Ecclesiastes 3:1)

God knows how to work that which is NOT good FOR good to them that love Him!  Trust Him with your broken pieces, and He will make a heavenly mosaic!

E - Ease of Mind & Heart

"And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus." (Philippians 4:7)

You Can Find Peace through the Prince of Peace, Jesus Christ!!
