You can find God Everywhere

If you’ve ever felt all alone and yet you were in the middle of an auditorium of people, it was a weird sensation.

I found myself in a dry place in life and spiritually. I knew, because this wasn’t the first time, I needed to get with the Lord and Listen.

It had to start with looking a God’s creation, nature. Wow, how beautiful!

I then thought of my new grand baby. A masterpiece. Which lead me to think about God’s Son. Though Him, God did it all. Christ made a way for you and I, even when we didn’t think there was a way!

1 I lift up my eyes to the mountains— where does my help come from?
2 My help comes from the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth.
3 He will not let your foot slip— he who watches over you will not slumber.

Psalm 121:1-3

Big Decisions

What do you do when you have to make a big decision? Sometimes making decisions are no-brainers. You make your choice, and even if it’s not the best decision, the potential consequences are rarely worth breaking a sweat.  Then there are times you have to make hard decisions.

The more you ponder making the decision, the more confused and stuck you feel. You just want a voice from the heavens to shout down instructions and tell you what path to take. This confusion is so uncomfortable that we tend to avoid these big decisions altogether. Of course, this does nothing but stoke a low-level sense of anxiety and frustration about ourselves and our circumstances. Avoidance has never been a great strategy for life success and happiness.

Over-thinking and compulsively analyzing a decision doesn’t help much either. Trying to predict the future is an impossible task, regardless of how certain you may feel about the desired outcome. Life is too unpredictable to know with certainty that you are making the “right” decision. Ultimately, any decision involves a leap of faith.

Here are some helpful hints if you are facing a BIG decision today:

  1. Evaluate the Pros and the Cons
  2. Phone a Friend
  3. Pray
  4. Research and Experiment – Research, ask questions, talk with people who have experienced each scenario. If possible, experiment with alternative outcomes.
  5. Don’t Look Back -If you have done your due diligence, and talked to God, then make your choice, take the leap and don’t look back.
