Proverbs 3:5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart. Never rely on what you think you know. 6 in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.

Current events in North Africa and the Middle East have caused me some concern. What to do when the economic upheaval arrives here.

10:45 PM   I noticed my son Harrison’s reading light on in his room. Upon investigating, he was writing something. I asked, "what are you doing"? He explained, “I wasn’t able to sleep so I thought maybe God wanted to tell me something so I prayed, God if you want to tell me something that it might be in the scripture, so then I opened my bible and it was Jer. 17 and I started reading. The verses 5-10 really stood out to me and I thought it was important, so I'm writing it down".

Jeremiah 17:5-10
5 This is what the LORD says:
  “Cursed is the one who trusts in man,
  who draws strength from mere flesh
  and whose heart turns away from the LORD.
6 That person will be like a bush in the wastelands;
  they will not see prosperity when it comes.
They will dwell in the parched places of the desert,
  in a salt land where no one lives.
7 “But blessed is the one who trusts in the LORD,
  whose confidence is in him.
8 They will be like a tree planted by the water
  that sends out its roots by the stream.
It does not fear when heat comes;
  its leaves are always green.
It has no worries in a year of drought
  and never fails to bear fruit.”
9 The heart is deceitful above all things
  and beyond cure.
  Who can understand it?
10 “I the LORD search the heart
  and examine the mind,
to reward each person according to their conduct,
  according to what their deeds deserve.”
