Making Tough Decisions

Updated: Jan 7, 2019

Hard Decisions

James 1:5-“If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you” Psalm 19:8-“The precepts of the Lord are right, giving joy to the heart. The commands of the Lord are radiant, giving light to the eyes” Proverbs 13:20-“Walk with the wise and become wise, for a companion of fools suffers harm” Proverbs 2:1-5-“My son, if you receive my words and treasure up my commandments with you making your ear attentive to wisdom and inclining your heart to understanding yes, if you call out for insight and raise your voice for understanding, if you seek it like silver and search for it as for hidden treasures, then you will understand the fear of the Lord and find the knowledge of God.” James 3:17-“But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, open to reason, full of mercy and good fruits, impartial and sincere." Jeremiah 33:3-“Call to me and I will answer you, and will tell you great and hidden things that you have not known.” Philippians 4:6-“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.”

It's a Hard Tough Life

There once was a young girl named Ana Who had a baby growing inside She was unmarried and single And couldn't afford to take care of the new life

She decided not to abort it but instead she just let the baby grow But eventually 9 months rolled around So she asked God, what should I do? Because she even still didn't know. All she knew is she didn't want the baby to end up alone.

He said "There are many different Roads to Take And sometimes you have to choose Sometimes the paths lead you down roads where you feel you can't win, or loose.

But No matter which path you take God is right by your side He will lead you and direct your steps If in him you only abide

Life is not always easy and Hard decisions are tough to make Especially When you are confused on which Path or road you should take."

So when it was time to have the baby She gave the life over to God in his hands And at that time she didn't know but for that baby boy God already had His life planned.

There was a man in the waiting room Who's wife Lost the struggle in childbirth's fight And their Son they had gotten ready for Died early that same night

As he was crying in agony Ana simply said a prayer And she heard God say, "Go to him... For this child in you They will take care."

To God's voice she did listen She was unsure at first and she Told that man her story As his eyes filled up with hope

Her baby Boy ended up with his new parents as they made themselves a home And in her heart Ana knew she did the right thing And that her baby boy would never worry about being alone

Sometimes in life you have to make really hard tough decisions. A lot of times, you end up making them somewhat blindly because they are so hard to make you just stand in your faith that at the end of it you have made the right choice. The key here is to listen to God's voice in this choice making struggle, and try to do what he wants and not your own will. But in the end God promises to make all your paths straight, if only you believe it.

Like Ana, we can all learn from her story that she kept faith that God would not leave her baby alone, her biggest fear, and even though he didn't give her all the answers when she first asked, he did tell her to trust in him and his plans. And when the time finally came around for her baby to be born, and she didn't know how or who would raise it. God in his timing had put a family in front of her who could and would gladly do it for her....

See all God's plan works out in the end. You just have to have faith and then Trust in him. We can all learn from Story's like Ana's.

Prayer For Today

Dear Heavenly Father,

Please be there for me in life, when I comes to making the hard decisions. I believe in you with all my heart, and sometimes I do not know what path to choose or to take, especially when it comes to making tough life changing decisions. Help me to trust in you and help me let you lead me.

In Jesus Christ name I pray, Amen.
