Can I tell you a secret? I hate making decisions.
You want to know why? I hate making decisions because I know that every decision I make is one step toward fulfilling my destiny, or delaying my destiny. Decisions are so tough. Do I choose this career, or the other? Do I choose this country or the other? Do I choose this guy or the other? Do I choose this school or the other? Do I …Do I… Do I?
Sometimes I try to delay the decisions, and hope that by not making a decision someone will finally decide for me, and all will work out well. But since I know that not everything that happens is actually from God, and I know that there are many things in life that happen that God would rather not have let happen…I realize that I can’t just let decisions go to the last minute.
The funny thing is that even when I think I haven’t made a decision, I have. Even when I think I will just let time decide, I have made the decision to let someone else decide for me. But when others decide for me I’m usually not satisfied, and I’m stuck with the consequences.
So I’m learning that I have to make decisions myself. I have to make wise decisions. No matter how hard, no matter how impossible it may seem, no matter how ridiculous it may seem, the important thing is to trust God, follow what he tells you to do, and leave all the consequences to him.
How about you? How do you decide?
