Scripture Correction...and a nugget of inspiration!!

Hi everyone. Boy, my tired mind must really be getting to me, I misquoted one of my favorite verses in the earlier blog tonight. I was trying to quote Proverbs 3:5-6, but I added part of Psalms 20:4. I guess I was really trying to share both. Here is the correction:
Proverbs 3:5-6 "Trust in the Lord with all of your heart and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him and he will make your paths straight."
Psalm 20:4 "May he give you the desires of your heart and make all your plans succeed."

As I was doing my Bible reading before coming to bed, the Lord prompted me to look up the above verses instead of going by memory. When I went to check them out, first of all I discovered my mistake and wanted to correct it, and second I read verse 5 of Psalm 20. Wow, what a blessing it was to me. It reminded me of the birthday present I got from my mom just last week which was the Willow Tree figurine of "Courage". It is an angel with her hands & arms stretched heavenward in a victorious stance. When I opened it I said to my mom, "I can hardly wait to walk out of Children's Hospital with Randy & Connor in that very position of outstretched arms of victory. Verse 5 in Psalm 20 says this, "We will shout for joy when you are victorious and we will lift up our banners in the name of our God. May the Lord grant all your requests." Praise the Lord for this small nugget tonight. My oh my how I needed to be reminded of God's faithfulness and how he is true to his word.

Lovebug Hugs,

I just wanted to say thank you for the words that you wrote tonight. I don't know or understand everything that you are going through but I do know what it's like to worry about what you can and can't do for your child.
I've been having some problems with my seven year old over the last couple of months and reading what you wrote has really got me thinking. I need to do the same thing and just completely give him to the Lord. I've tried what I can and I just can't seem to do enough. Thank you for helping me to realize that maybe I wasn't doing EVERYTHING needed.
I continue praying for the three of you and hope that one day real soon you'll be able to hold your little bug tight and walk away from the doctors....Knowing without a doubt that everything is going to be alright and that ALL OF YOU have done everything you can.
God Bless
