Whether you are deciding to eat that day-old bread or what to talk about for a class presentation, life is full of decisions.

I’m currently at the crossroads of several life-changing decisions.

  • I need to decide if I will work at summer camp or stay home and keep my job.
  • I have to decide whether to go to music camp and hang out with friends or risk starting off my school year in the fall exhausted.
  • I have to decide if I’ll go to school far away or close.
  • I have to decide which program to enroll in.
  • I have to decide to wake up before noon on any given day.

There are many factors that go into these decisions. Making a pros and cons list isn’t enough. I’ve spent a huge amount of time role playing every possible outcome in my head.

This is what the Bible says about decisions:

“Trust in the Lord with all of your heart and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight. Proverbs 3:5-6
“For the Lord gives wisdom; from His mouth comes knowledge and understanding.” Proverbs 2:6

“So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.” 1 Corinthians 10:31

“Do not be unequally yoked with unbelievers. For what partnership has righteousness with lawlessness? Or what fellowship has light with darkness?” 2 Corinthians 6:14

“Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things.” Philippians 4:8

So with these verses in mind, I continue to pray every day about my important decisions. While some are still unclear, God has shown me the way for the rest of them.
