How many of you out there are like me, you love to make decisions when they are easy, when they require little or no sacrifice? It's the decisions that require me to move out of my comfort zone into the unknown that are decisions that I may shrink away from.
What if this decision you know is the right one ,does it make it any easier?
In my case I don't think those decisions are necessarily 'easy' ones. For me the decisions that I know are right and require sacrifice are the tough ones. An important decision that will leave me without doing so much of what I want to do, that requires I have to give something up, is tough...seems selfish? It is selfish yes.
In one particular decision I am making there will be sacrifice, and yet I know there will also be reward. There will be a full reliance upon God, which is a good thing, and I know that He can do more than I can even ASK, THINK or IMAGINE(Eph 3:20).....isn't that incredible? Even though my flesh may not be in agreement my spirit is at peace. That is how I know the decision is the right one, however tough it may be.
Decisions are the crossroads in life, where there can be incredible growth, depth of insight and learning. Even though they may not be easy and require sacrifice on my part I believe that as long as I follow the peace of God in my decisions I am making the right ones.
Thank-you God today for being with me when I am making important decisions, it is only with you and through you that I know life is worth living. You alone can bring a peace that passes all understanding and today I trust and fully rely on you that you work all things for the good of those that love you. Praising you today Father ~ yours always ME
