i like traveling on a one-way road. One that is relatively straight, clear, smooth, wide, with plenty of comfortable stops along the way. Unfortunately, that isn’t how life works. Life is full of bumps, sharp turns, narrow paths, thorns, and intersections. i can handle bumps, sharp turns, narrow paths…after all the Word says, “narrow is the way” right? …i can even handle thorns, it is the intersections that get me. Intersections are the worst. Decisions, decisions, you know what i like, not making decisions. i always wonder, “what if”! What if this or what if that or what if what if???
i remember watching a movie once where the main character lived out all the possibilities of his life, all the what if’s were answered, good or bad. i don’t know if i would like that either. And that is the problem. We would never be satisfied and because there are so many decisions made every day the possibilities are endless. What is the answer to decisions? Simply put faith. After a decision is made you can always second guess, and Monday morning quarterback your choices that turned out…well, less than desirable. However, our goal ultimately should be learning from them and trusting or having faith that in the moment you made the best decision given the information that you had.
Reflect on this verse Proverbs 3:5-
“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!”
you are LOVED,
