Making plans

What do you do when you know you have big decisions to make that will change your life, but no idea which way your life should exactly go?

It's really easy to give a knee-jerk reaction when you feel that you're at the crossroads and either need to make a choice, or simply desperately need a change in your life.

You want to plunge in, and do something completely different and go in a totally opposite direction to where you initially thought your life was headed.

But what do you do?

I've had to make those kind of decisions once too often in my life, and often, I realise that all I needed to do was to practice a little patience. And it's usually easier said than done, particularly when you're sick of what you're currently doing or the situation that you're in.

But we need to remember that our time lines are often very different from God's time line.

Everything has its place and time and just because we want something to change does not necessarily mean it is actually time for a change.

What we need to do is to put our faith and trust in God that something will work out, keep praying and keep hoping.

It's not going to be easy, but it will soon become clear.

God grant Mel the serenity
to accept the things she cannot change;
courage to change the things she can;
and wisdom to know the difference.

Crossroads are always challenging, it helps if there are traffic lights, cos when there is a green, you just go, but usually there are no big green arrows blazing across the sky

but sometimes i find it helpful to draw them - well, to draw what the options are, and what it might look like if one path was followed, or vice versa

how do you think the future would look, feel, touch, taste, sound, who might be there,

mapping the future visually sometimes gives a clue that the left brain "logical, rational" side might not consider
