What direction do I go?
What choice do I make?
What do I do?
Has your life ever came to a fork in the road? Maybe your road looked more as if it was coming to a dead end. Decisions in life are imminent. Though we know nothing in life is certain except uncertainty, it doesn’t make it any easier to deal with direction and choice.
Have you ever felt like no matter how hard you try, you can’t decide which way is the right way. Whether it’s what degree you want to pursue, career you want to chose or investment you want to decide on, life is full of decisions. Maybe your current decision doesn’t seem as life-altering, but maybe you are just trying to figure out who to talk to, what to spend your free-time on or what to consume.
Decisions shape our life. In our desperation, we long for the right decision and put the pressure on ourselves to make it. We weren’t meant to stand on our own understanding, rather trust and acknowledge God.
Trust in the Lord with all your hear and lean not on your own understanding;
in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight. Proverbs 3:5-6
Here the scripture lays out the perfect two-step process on what to do, when we don’t know what to do.
1) Trust in the Lord
2) Submit to Him
The next two weeks I will be diving individually into these two subjects and looking at the importance of trusting and submitting to the Lord.
No matter how winding and curving your current paths may be. Choose today to trust and submit, and watch your paths become straight.
