How I make big decisions
2020, what a year! I don’t know about you, but coronavirus has definitely thrown a lot of plans that I had into the air.
Maybe you didn’t get the grades you were hoping for; maybe you’ve lost your job and you’re wondering how you’re going to find another one; maybe you had plans to travel and now you’re unsure of what to do?
Uncertainty is never easy or comfortable.
Uncertainty is never easy or comfortable, but I’m slowly learning how to find joy despite the challenges that may come along.
‘Trust in the Lord completely, and do not rely on your own opinions. With all your heart rely on him to guide you, and he will lead you in every decision you make.’ Proverbs 3:5-6 in the Bible.
I don’t need anyone to tell me which way to go when I can clearly see everything ahead of me. However, when I’m in a position where I don’t know whether to take a left or a right, it can be challenging.
Believe that God will lead me into something amazing.
I can either choose to trust and believe that God will lead me into something amazing, or I can try to figure things out by myself. You can probably guess which one turns out the best!
Change can be unsettling, but it can also be exciting.
By choosing to follow God’s leading in my decisions, I’ve suddenly found myself surrounded by new opportunities from the wildest of places. I never would have found them if I had chosen to figure things out myself.
Trusting in God has helped me.
Trusting in God has helped me; it has given me the chance to dream new dreams, and rediscover old ones.
So, when things can feel confusing and unsure, I challenge you to choose to trust in God. And maybe, just maybe, you’ll be surprised by how things turn out.
