3 Points To Ponder

A boulder can not be influenced sitting still, as once it is moving, it can be directed right or left. Where in your life do you need to get moving instead of sitting still?

Sometimes we make life too complicated, believing the fate of our lives rests on our ability to make the right decisions. When you understand your finiteness in the grand scheme of things, taking yourself less seriously becomes easier. Where do you need to stop arguing with the Creator of the World and move forward in faith?

If you are on a path you do not like, the choice to turn around and go back is yours. Determine who you want to be and set the trajectory of your life on this path. It won’t be all wins, but you don’t need perfection. You need a majority. Perfection is impossible, so don’t get hung up on it. What is your current trajectory right now? Do you need to change course or stay true to the path?

1 Story of Impact

I was recently sitting with a younger person, as she was looking for some advice about prospective next steps in her journey. She went through all the pros and cons of two choices and finally ended with, "I want to make sure I make the right decision." I stopped her and said, "In situations like these, there is no right or wrong decision. There is a decision made and a path that starts. Instead of stressing about which path is right or wrong, change the question. Which one brings you peace right now? Which one makes your heart beat a little faster? And if after going down the path you decide this isn't for you, a new path can be forged in a different direction. Don't think you have to have it all figured out in this one decision." How many of us struggle with paralysis by analysis because we want to make the "right" decision? If you struggle in this area, I ask you to flip the question and instead, look for the Fruit of the Spirit in the outcome. Which path do you believe right now with the information you have will bring about the most love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control? And if you start down a path and do not see evidence of the fruit, you can always change paths to something better. Today, if you are stuck in a loop and having trouble moving forward, look for the fruit and make a decision. As long as it is morally sound, there is no right or wrong. There is just life, so stop worrying so much. The world needs your love in action.
