Man, decisions get harder to make the older you get. Or maybe it’s not even about age, but the awareness. The more you know about yourself, your future, your desires, it seems the tougher the decisions get because, you just realize you don’t have time for mediocre things that don’t contribute much to your life.
Have you ever just evaluated a situation and had to make the hard decision of eliminating it. Have you ever just had the subtle nudge to quit it, or let it go. It seems like those subtle nudges are the ones that are the most important, but the hardest to act on.
Then it gets a little harder when you don’t have a single clue as to what will fill the space that you’ve freed up. Imagine deciding to sell your car without any idea as to where the next one will come from or when. In this day and age, that sounds ridiculous. The thing is, many times, our best life requires those moves and decisions.
In Genesis, God told Abram to leave everything he knew and go to a place that “He (God) would show him.” If you bring that to current times, you can’t put that in the GPS. No arrangements can be made for a place you’ll be shown when you get there. All Abram knew was that he had to pack his belongings and say goodbye.
You know, we all want a promise/ prophecy from God, but real talk, life gets trill when you have a promise on your life. When you know there’s a specific thing God is granting you and bringing through you, it gets real because there’s a position required for it to come through.
So today as I pondered the few things that I have to make decisions about, for those things I may have to leave behind, I said to God, “Lord, just make it good.” I needed to be reassured that what is to come will be far better than what is.
All things work together for the GOOD of those who love Him and are called according to his purpose. (Romans 8:28) We hear it all the time, but how often do we really believe it in our hearts, when it counts. Like, when there are no details or even when the details don’t seem good…
My charge to you (and to myself) is to believe that God will make it good.
Believe in Him,
