Trust in the Lord

All morning long, I've had Proverbs 3:5-6 in my head (the verse from VBS last night). I decided to look it up in different translations. I really liked the way the Message paraphrased it.
Trust God from the bottom of your heart;
don't try to figure out everything on your own.
Listen for God's voice in everything you do, everywhere you go;
He's the one who will keep you on track.
Don't assume that you know it all.
Run to God! Run from evil!
Your body will glow with health,
your very bones will vibrate with life!
Honor God with everything you own;
give Him the first and the best.
Your barns will burst, your wine vats will brim over.
But don't, dear friend, resent God's discipline;
don't sulk under His loving correction.
It's the child he loves that God corrects;
a father's delight is behind all this.

Proverbs 3:5-12 (The Message)

Right now I need to trust the Lord to get me through this afternoon. I finished my coffee already and have no more.
Maybe my coffee vats will brim over...
