Why is Making Decisions So Hard?


"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 straight your paths." Proverbs 3:5-6

Confession, I have a difficult time deciding the simplest things. I've had enough conversations with my sister's to know that I'm not alone in this. So, why is making decisions so difficult for so many of us ladies? News flash! Men don't have this problem very often. Actually ladies, just so you don't feel all alone, making decisions is one of the most difficult things we do. When it comes to decisions, we have this desire to protect ourselves from the wrong decisions or from the consequences of the wrong decision. Too many of us have had to suffer the agony of poor decisions. Ouch! Think about this...Could there be something missing in our decision making? The thing we always pray for is the one thing God does not give us. He is far too wise for that. He does not give us a view of the finish line. Instead, He does something so much better. He gives us Himself! Our confidence in making decisions is directly related to our confidence in God Himself. Bring Him into your decision making today. He will hold you firm to the end.

Sweet Blessings,
Jo
