When it rains, it pours.
Especially when it comes to making big decisions. I'm a terrible decision-maker. So is my husband. Fortunately for us we tend these days to leave the mega decisions up to God, and just pray for wisdom in discerning what He is telling us.
It hasn't always been like that, however. In our past, we've tended to make decisions based on what we *thought* was the right thing, or what we *assumed* must be God's desire for us. Bad idea.
In those times we'd always (not often, but always) find ourselves in over our heads in some manner. Whether it be a new job, a new house, or a financial dilemma, when we rested in our own ideas, it never amounted to much good for anyone.
In the years since coming to seminary, I've had moments of wondering what we're doing here, or marveling at the fact that we're at seminary, for goodness' sake, and don't feel the slightest bit spiritually wiser....and it's moments like this.... when what seems like a good idea to me loses out in favor or what we *know* God is telling us to do.
So in times when you can't figure out what to do, turn to God. He is genuinely interested in even the smallest details of your life, and He knows the big picture in a way we cannot even begin to fathom.
