Overwhelmed, but Believing

Today is one of those days where I just plain feel overwhelmed. Not because of the tasks ahead of me, but because of the choices ahead of me.

If you are someone who knows me personally, you know that decision-making is not one of my strong characteristics. I am a great follower, co-captain, second fiddle. Though I can lead and have a strong personality to lead, I often choose not to because I know that there are others out there who are much more well-equipped than I am.

So we have some big decisions in front of us...and though I am overwhelmed and struggle with unbelief, today I am choosing to believe God.

Father, I am so grateful for Your love. Today, I choose to believe You. Help me to listen for Your voice and not the other voices of doubt, unbelief and self. I love You. Amen.

A co-worker just shared this a moment ago..."God whispers in your soul and speaks to your mind. Sometimes when you don't have time to listen, he has to throw a brick at you. It's your choice: Listen to the whisper, or wait for the brick."

I choose the whisper...and I will wait.

Becks-
I am sorry that you are feeling overwhelmed with decisions facing you. Know that I am praying for you... You should trust those leadership abilities the Lord has given you. And remember that if you are in the will of God, you get to pick. You don't have to pick the less attractive offer because it seems like the more Godly thing to do. He is our father and likes to delight us with his goodness.

I love you!
