It really is so tough still to discern the right thing to do. Some times it is easy. Like if you should run the red light or not. Obviously you should not run the red light. But on days when you must plan for the family, where to go, what to eat, all of those decisions are still tough to make some days. Even though most of us put little thought into our day, we still make constant decisions that do have an effect on us.
I do not know how many of you take hours to ponder options and think of an answer. But at time I myself take days to decide things. Other times I may take 5 minutes or all night. Even on the seemingly simple choices. Trust me there has been plenty of times I make a decision then spend days regretting it, or wondering if it was the right choice to make. I hate those, especially when they cause me to beat myself up over something I now can not change but have to live with. Today I made decisions that I am still unsure of, if they were the right ones. But I’ve prayed about them and I just have to have faith that even if they were the wrongs ones, they will still work out.
See like making dinner is a simple decision for most. Tonight I was sure of spaghetti because my son has a friend over for dinner. But if that kid would have been allergic to tomato sauce or something, I would have likely had a mental breakdown about what to make. It sounds silly and made me laugh at the thought of. But at one point, before I learned how to battle anxiety; It would have likely been the end of the world to decide if the friend could even come over.
I know at this point in my journey that I have grown a lot in just the past few months. Just based on the day to day choices that I make. Some days are great, some are questionable. I was so nervous when I woke up today at the thought of how much still needed taken care of in the world around me. But I have faith that even through the simplest of things, my God can get me through it all. He has done it before and He will do it again.
And God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may have an abundance for every good work. 2 Corinthians 9:8 NKJV
I do not know if some things were the right choice to make. I can however pray about them and have faith that each situation will work out. It does me no good to dwell on each decision, it does me no good to stress about each one, and it does no good to panic about the unknown. That is not how we were intended to live. We were intended to live joyful abundant lives.
The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly. John 10:10 NKJV
The negative destructive thoughts that we battle each day, we must learn, those are of the enemy. They are to be battled and they are not to be tolerated. Beating ourselves up, is an attack. Regret, anxiety, confusion, all from the enemy. We must learn that, then learn quick how to defend ourselves. Otherwise we will have no peace and no rest. These are important issues that we must learn to handle before they become destructive.
I hope you all learn how to handle your everyday battles. Remember to pray about them, read the word and ask for guidance. Only then will we start to win. Love you all. Have an awesome blessed weekend.
But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. Matthew 6:33 NKJV
