Thank you so much for sharing that with us!
That verse from Proverbs means to trust in God and give him control to work out the "hows" and "whens" of your desires. Also, put your trust in your higher self/ sub conscious mind/heart/gut instinct(those are all one in the same,) for that is your connection to God, the creator of the universe, and your heart knows the truth. Your understanding of things comes from your conscious mind, so don't lean on that because it does not know everything (yet.) You will understand more when revelations are made to you; it may be through people on this forum, your loved ones, or angels that may appear in your life in brief moments as strangers while you are unaware that they are angels. It could also be revealed to you from epiphanies or simply by things such as what you were experiencing when your friend called attention to that bible verse. Be open and receptive and also aware, because God speaks to his children through signs and all those things mentioned above. As well, the creator of the universe speaks to your subconscious mind/ heart/ gut instinct/ higher self and that is where you get those epiphanies or revelations.
In all your ways acknowledge him means that you must be grateful for everything he has given you, thank him, and give him credit for everything good that happens, and YES he will guide you to make the right decisions and he will direct your path down the right and good road. He wants you to be happy and successful, and he wants you to feel good and love yourself and love others as he does you.
Feel good knowing these things and ask him for things, because he wants more than anything to bless you! If it is your desire to reunite with your ex, then so it shall be! Be patient with God's timing for it is perfect and he knows when both of you are ready to have a more wonderful relationship the next time around. So leave the timing up to him and in the meantime love and be happy by yourself, because once you can do that, you can be happy with others. KNOW and BELIEVE that!
Please keep us posted. I am thrilled that you have gotten a message from God, for he is good!
