Have you ever felt that God is telling you exactly what to do but you still can’t figure it out? I can’t tell you how many times in the last couple of weeks I’ve been asking the Lord, “What do you want me to do?” “What is your will?” I’ve been blessed to have an abundance of work opportunities come my way lately and with each one I begin the agonizing decision-making process of whether to bid on them. Each choice is so tough because it means moving further towards my personal work goals but sacrificing time with Luke and Daddy Russ.

This past month I had an amazing client opportunity come my way. It was completely up my alley and I really would have loved to sign them on. I talked to God and my family endlessly for days about what I should do. Back and forth, back and forth. I was on the very verge of bidding for them and had a sudden revelation that the timing just wasn’t right. Luke’s still so young…he needs me…and frankly I need this time with him too.

I know God was speaking directly to my heart through my indecision it just some times takes me a little bit extra time to interpret it! In the end I did decide to decline the opportunity. All I can do is pray that I made the right decision. With each day it certainly feels like I did. It really helps just to know that I have someone guiding me throughout each and every day.

Have you ever felt like God was telling you something but you just couldn’t figure it out?

    I’ve absolutely felt this way. This morning I read this passage: Mathew 21:23-27. The message I took from it was that we cannot allow fear or uncertainty to cloud our authority.

    When faced with a big decision, I *try* to take out those elements (not always successful).

    Our babies are with us for a short time; I think you chose wisely.

    Wise decision! God is good at guiding us.
    Love the pictures, especially of Luke and Havana!
