On Decisions

Have you ever rushed into something?
Jumped to a conclusion you soon regretted?
Didn't jump at an opportunity that presented itself and  immediately realized it was the wrong choice?
I've been there...
In fact, I think we've all been there at some point.
This past year I really wanted to start making very carefully thought out decisions.
I was tired of making decisions on a whim and rushing into things.
So I made the conscious choice that before any decision was made I would pray about it.
I prayed over different choices and decisions for me and our family.
Whether is was a major investment, a huge life change, or a small decision-I've prayed over them all.
Before any final decision was made I took the time to really think over and pray over what was bothering me or what my options were.
And do you know what happned?
For the first time in a long time I've been really, really happy with the decisions I've made lately.
If I felt a nudging to do something-I did it.
If I felt a nudging to not do something-I didn't do it.
Simple as that!


  1. Such words to live by....I'm sometimes impulsive with my decisions, but when it comes to my kids I always take some time to think about it before acting!

  2. Great post! I've started writing out pros and cons before deciding certain situations and it really does help to see all of my options listed out on paper.


Hearing from you seriously MAKES my day, feel free to leave some love below!
