According to recent statistics, I made 5,000 decisions today.
Some of our everyday choices are random, others weighty, but many of our decisions become choice points, leading us in one direction or another.
I choose whether to react in anger, or respond with understanding to my spouse. I choose whether to create drama with a friend who hurt my feelings, or give her grace. I choose time with my Heavenly Father, or push that time to another day... again.
Isaiah 30:21 says, "This is the way, walk in it." Our Heavenly Father offers to lead the way in those more challenging choice points.
As you make your decisions today, invite God into the process. He won’t lead you astray.
Further Reflection for the Blog:
Keep a journal this week of choice points. Note those that lead you in the wrong direction. Are there common themes? If you were overtired, how can you implement rest? If you were trying to live a packed life with your spiritual tank unfilled, will you stop and fill it up?
Proverbs 16:9, "The heart of man plans his way, but the LORD establishes his steps." (ESV)
