‘Jesus said, I am the way’

John 14:6

Sometimes in life you come to a crossroads and you’re not sure which way to go. My personal rule is I only move when I’m sure, that way I know I’m making the right decision. I never choose anything by tossing a coin or pulling something out of a hat. It has to be more real than that.
Most crossroads experiences are for a short period, you don’t hang around too long. Sometimes though you can find yourself in that position. One day you feel it’s right to follow path A but the next day path B seems the way. Then it’s path C that appeals.
These things can happen in any area of our life, big or small. But you still want to make the right decision. Even something that appears minor right now can have major consequences.
Every choice we make has a consequence. Once we sow seeds we have to live with the harvest that follows.
I’ve had something on my mind for a while, which way do I go as I’ve got two options. I’ve sat on it, thought about it, and of course prayed about it. Like anything else though sooner or later you have to act. You can’t spend your whole life staring at a signpost.
I’m at the point where I can see clarity and I know that when I wake up tomorrow I will know the decision I’m going to make.
Once I have I’ll move. There’ll be no looking back. That’s important, you can’t spend your whole life waiting and you can’t spend it looking back either.
(I’m not saying that sometimes we make mistakes and we have to backtrack, that’s a different thing.)
Decisions can be tough to make sometimes, and often it’s only when you make them that you feel the ‘release’.
Choices aren’t always forced on us for negative reasons either. My crossroads isn’t a bad one. Whatever I do, I’ll be happy. It’s just about getting it right, that’s all.
Got decisions to make? Don’t rush. Get it right.
