It seems that some of the best decisions I’ve ever made were also some of the hardest decisions. Stupid decisions were easy to make, but good decisions required much thought and prayer. It’s like I’m hesitant to gain good things!
Most of the time I felt deep down which decision to make, but for some reason it was difficult to actually follow through on. I thought a lot, I was afraid, and it just didn’t feel like the right time.
Looking back I realize that I actually ended up making those decisions while I was still afraid. I remember when I was considering a leadership position for the first time. Management thought I was ready, and although I felt like I could handle the job, I was just flat out scared!
I remember I kept telling myself that I would wait, but then I finally asked myself “What am I waiting for?”
Fear will keep you waiting forever. If we wait until we’re not afraid then we’d probably never get much accomplished.
I’m starting to recognize this trend and I want to become more intentional with my decision-making tactics. I don’t want to stay afraid very long. I don’t want to think too much. I don’t want to be afraid of good things.
Good things are hard to grasp but I pray that the Lord will grant me wisdom and boldness with my decision making skills!
