Choices

So... I've been looking for answers. I've prayed for answers, and sometimes God has given them, but I have a tendency to question His answers, which leaves me looking for answers all over again, and wondering why He doesn't answer... (Do you understand what I'm saying?) Perhaps I am pained at the answer. Quite honestly, He probably couldn't give an answer I like no matter what He said, and therein lies the real problem...

He asked what I needed again. I may or may not have said "answers" and the conversation turned to answers vs choices. Here I am, the ever indecisive, needing to make hard choices. Choices I don't want to make, but in life we are forced over and over again to look at the options before us and make choices. Even hard choices. Even choices we don't really like.

I've already made hard choices and followed through on them. Impossibly hard choices. That is why I am here in this little attic room. This year, if I want to move forward, there will be more choices. Some will be easy, and other will be hard. It is the hard choices that help us grow and make us strong. 

I was looking for a word for this year. maybe it is "choices."

  3. Last year I spent every day reading Max Lucado's daily devotions, "Grace Moments" all about choosing!!! It has really helped me through some tough times. I don't share my tough times on my fb or blog....but this I know. Choices to make a difference. I'm praying you will have clarity in your tough choices...and I do think we can choose to be happy...even as the tears roll down our face. Love you deeply and dearly. I'm so glad you have connected with my dear friend Sue Batz. She is a darling, and such a loving encourager. Hugs.

    1. Thank you for your love, prayers, and sharing your fiend Sue with me. I love Max Lucado. Maybe I'll look for his daily devotion book. As soon as I can get out of the driveway.
      FB and blogs are not the place to air our dirty laundry, but sometimes writing out my thoughts helps me clear my mind, at least a little bit. Thank you for being there. A kiss goodnight to you. <3

  5. I don't think you air you laundry on fb or blog...I think you are more honest than me, and I'm held to a standard I didn't set for myself. I have children who do not comment, but read...so I keep it mostly about my kitchen..HaHa.. Love you so much, and respect all you do and write..I'm a big fan.
