Making Tough Decisions
Let’s face it—there is not a day that goes by at which matters of concern are not brought to your attention. From the moment your roll out of bed until you’ve completed a days’ worth of activities, decisions are always brewing and waiting for you to plan the next course of events. What are you going to wear today? Do the kids have after school rehearsals? How long are you going to stay in this relationship? Is it your turn to carpool or provide team snacks for the upcoming game on Saturday? When are you going to fill out that paperwork that’s been sitting on the kitchen table for over a month?
While some of those questions may seem minor and easy to address, you can’t overlook those really tough decisions too. You know… the ones that you have been putting off and hoping that the issue would just go away.
Making those tough decisions all boils down to you weighing out all the options, getting off that emotional rollercoaster of “what ifs” and really consider what’s best for you in the long run. Do you want what you want to have OR do you want what God want you to have? The Lord has your best interest at heart and is waiting for you to trust Him and lean not to your own understanding. Although everything around you, including people, will attempt to make you feel as if you are making the wrong choice, you must follow the promptings of the Holy Spirit and go with God’s will. It would be too simple to take the easy way out of things, but if you be strong in Him, don’t 2nd guess yourself and apply wisdom, you’ll come out with a resolve and most importantly, be at peace.
