When facing a tough decision your mind goes around in circles. You try to understand and figure it all out yourself, but it’s impossible. It seems like you don’t have the time to pray about it, but if you pray, the process will save you time later. There’s nothing that wastes time and energy more than confusion. It also helps to talk to someone, but don’t rely on this alone.
God’s presence gives you peace. Take the time. Pray. Read from the Bible. You’ll notice that things begin to become more ordered and clear. Try not to have a preference and let the Spirit guide you. Even Jesus took the time to consult with his Father about tough decisions. Imitate our Lord and the results will be glorious.
In these days he went out to the mountain to pray; and all night he continued in prayer to God.
Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
And lean not on your own understanding;
Give yourself or a friend our most cherished prayers in a pocketbook version…
