To find what you seek in the road of life, the best proverb of all is that which says: “Leave no stone unturned.” (Edward Bulwer Lytton, 19th century English politician)
When it’s difficult to think and plan ahead, it’s so easy just to give up and let things happen as life goes on without our intentional involvement. But Lytton’s counsel is well taken. The more carefully and fully we investigate the possible obstacles and hurdles, the better able we will be to strategize and help determine our future.
In their hearts humans plan their course, but the LORD establishes their steps (Proverbs 16:9).
