i know, i know, i’m supposed to ask well, “what would Jesus do?”
this would answer my question – “what does God want?”
hmmm, so how do i “hear” His answer?
like all families we have some big decisions to make sometimes.
yesterday i was driving along minding my own business when God popped into my head
and said, “well aren’t you going to ask me? you are trying to figure out what is best, but you haven’t brought me in to guide you.” “oh, yea, ok God, what would you like us to do?”
boom, there on the side of the freeway i have driven hundreds of times but have never noticed are
three beautiful huge crosses. beautiful. huge. how have i never seen these before? so it’s like a sign right? i ask God a question and smack right in the middle of “do” and “?” is a picture. hmmm, ok. not really a sign, but i somehow feel like He really IS listening. 30 seconds later the words pour out of my children’s mouths. this is what they want, this is the answer. is it God’s guidance?
maybe there isn’t really one right answer and as long as we do our best God is ok with it.
maybe He knows we can pull it off no matter what our decision is.
some decisions are so scary i wish there were some kind of road map for them or a “sign”.
my ears are perked and listening.
how about you? are you “listening”?
