Life is always just a bunch of branches leading us into a path that sometimes intertwines with each other. Sometimes we figure it all out and sometimes we never get out of all the tangles. Where is the path that we are supposed to choose? How are we supposed to know that we are choosing the right path or are we setting ourselves up for disaster?
Lots of choices in life make us question whether or not our decisions are even what God really intends for our life.
In Proverbs 3:5-6
it says "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."
I guarantee you that there will always be a choice and multiple paths to choose. The question is whether or not that will be the right path for your life. God has our lives all planned out which is amazing to think about.
We will be put in awkward situations and some not so comfortable. We tend to think that whatever makes us happy or content is what we are supposed to do.
I know for us right now we are praying for a move. We have our house on the market and things are not budging. Does that mean God wants us to just be patient and wait on his timing? Are we just trying to make something happen that shouldn’t be happening right at the moment? I am not sure. So we wait and hopefully either doors are closed or maybe there will be a new door that opens. Being patient is something that we are definitely not born with that’s for sure. It’s something that comes in time and has to be learned. I even catch myself with my children telling them that we need to learn to have a little patience sometimes and wait until the time is right. What is it that we need instant gratification with everything? I know for myself this is something that needs to be worked on.
We have to remember that we all have a plan and purpose for our lives and we need to be aware that life will throw us some curve balls, but don’t try to figure out which way to turn on your own. You can always choose a path but doesn’t mean it will be the right one. Let the right door open and follow that path. Have patience and trust God that he knows what is best for your life. Don’t try to rush just because it may be something that you want. We have all we want it’s just a matter of what we need!
