Linking up today for another Five Minute Friday! The word: decide. Timer set for 5 minutes…
Funny timing, this word – decide.
Funny because last night I stayed up late chatting with Steve about a bunch of unknowns and things I’m wondering about. Funny because I have a hard time making decisions when I feel like I need more information or confirmation.
So I guess this was a good nudge from God.
Do I know exactly what decision to make about all the questions I’ve been tossing around?
But I know I must decide this for sure – to trust and be patient. A decision to rely on God and wait in the moment, even if it drives me crazy sometimes to have these unanswered and unplanned things sitting out there in my future.
A decision to let go of my desire to control and plan everything and instead have a peace about where I’m at and Who is truly in control.
The questions are still there… the kinds that I fall asleep praying about and half wishing (okay maybe more than half!) I’ll dream an answer from God before I wake up.
But today it’s okay. Today I decide to wait and trust. Every day this one decision must be made again and again – to wait, to trust, and to lean on the One who holds every answer.
Trust in the LORD with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and he will make your paths straight. (Proverbs 3:5-6)
