DO YOU EVER have a hard time making a decision? It can be especially hard if you’re the type of person who really wants to get it right. The higher the stakes, the harder the choice.
Things can seem so foggy when you’re looking at your own life, but when you look into someone else’s situation it’s often very clear. We tend to either be really hard on ourselves or go too easy on ourselves. If you can’t make a decision or you just don’t know what to do, imagine yourself advising someone else in your situation. What would you tell them?
It can be really hard to make a choice when you highly value doing the right thing. As long as you aren’t choosing to do something in violation of God’s ways or your conscience, you can move forward with courage and confidence. Even if you choose “wrong”, God is able to make everything work out for your best.
When you have a decision to make:
-Pray about it
-If you’re married, get into unity with your spouse about it
-Bounce it off the people in your inner circle
-Say no to fear
-Pick the “scary but exciting option”
To break free from gridlock, you will have to choose to let go of all of the “what if’s” and move forward. If at some point the peace leaves, you can choose to make a change.
