I am the most indecisive person I know…at least, I think I am. Then again, maybe I’m not.
On top of that, I am a chronic people-pleaser.
Add those things together, and you can imagine the anxiety I carry around most days when it comes to making decisions.
This hit home again recently when we had an illness outbreak in our office. My husband is immuno-compromised, so we have to take more precautions than the average person.
I had to make some hard decisions.
What do I need to cancel?
What should I say no to?
Do I need to work from home?
And once again, I started to buckle under the weight of trying to make the right decision while also making everyone around me happy.
When I get to that place, I have to remind myself of the only thing I can do: make the next right decision.
Psalm 119:105 says, “Your word is a lamp to guide my feet and a light for my path.”
Do you see the rescue in that verse? God promises to guide us forward one step at a time.
And so that’s my prayer today, and I’m praying it for you too: “God, show us the next right thing!”
