I stand at the crossroads looking this way and that, trying to decide where to go from here.
In each direction stand unknown possibilities, opportunities, obstacles and roadblocks and I don’t know how to gauge their enormity or significance.
Have you ever been there?
Because I’ve given my life to God and I trust Him to direct my path, I believe what I decide is not as important as how I decide. And yet…
All around I see people who suffer the consequences of poor decisions. I wonder what will happen if I choose poorly? What if I miss the chance to experience God’s best by letting misplaced motives convince me to settle for something less? Not intentionally, of course. Which of us would intentionally choose less than God’s best?
So I listen for His still small voice.
I don’t think He’s spoken yet.
But what if expedience, worldly wisdom or my own impatience are screaming louder? What if my fear of misstep is drowning out His voice? What if I’m waiting too long at this crossroads?
What if it's too late to decide my own path?
What lessons have you learned at your crossroad experiences? Will you share them with me?
