    Decisions, decisions, is there ever an end? The answer is yes. Death ends all decisions, the final play has been called, the curtain is dropped, no more this or that and decisions made or unmade are no more. Eternity has set in. But until then, you and I are faced with multiple decisions on a daily basis.

    Each decision, great or small, has a profound influence on our future. Of course the greatest decision, the one with eternal consequences is the decision to receive Christ as Savior.

    But what about all the other decisions of life, should I, shouldn’t I? What is the right decision? What will happen if…it goes on and on it’s enough to…..

    May I refer you to the absolutely perfect source for decision making? James 1:5-8 “If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him. But when he asks, he must believe and not doubt, because he who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. That man should not think he will receive anything from the Lord; he is a double-minded man, unstable in all he does.”

    For years my simple prayer in making decisions has been “Lord keep me close enough to you that you will not allow me to make a wrong choice or decision.” After asking in faith for wisdom, that prayer continues to be the filter of all my decisions. It makes decisions so much easier.

    Help us continue providing resources of care for pastors and their families.
