What You Need to Know about Making Decisions

 

//  Do you have some big decisions to make? In the past few weeks, I’ve spoken with so many of you who are asking yourselves (and those around you), “What do I do now?”

That’s a good question.

I suppose you could always go back to traditional decision-making techniques such as making lists of pros and cons, weighing out the good and the bad.

Or you could look for an external ‘sign’ that could show you which way to go. You could put out a ‘fleece’ as Gideon did. (Isn’t that the go-to story that people use when trying to make decisions?)

Collect Words of Life, Not Criticism

  • Second-guessing myself? Stop this ride—I wanna get off now.

There’s a verse in the Bible that speaks about God sending His Word and then TESTING that Word (check out Psalm 105:19). I think that’s what’s been happening here. You see, whenever we allow God to use us to deliver something important, WE get tested in it first.    Read more

He Loves to Make Your Dreams Come True

 

//  I giggled recently when I heard someone call Santa Claus a stalker because “He sees you when you’re sleeping, He knows when you’re awake.” Haha!

Thank goodness we don’t think the same about God—He even counts the number of hairs on your head and calls the stars by name.

But seriously, isn’t it a comfort to know that SOMEONE knows everything about you and doesn’t forget the important stuff?

About 25 years ago, I started my bucket list. Do you have a bucket list? Mine contains ALL of the things I want to accomplish in my lifetime but wasn’t able to do at that moment. I was a young mom in those days, and we only had one car. I was REALLY feeling trapped within our four walls and endless kid chaos.
