On decisions

how to survive working in a job you hate

Have you ever been at a crossroad where you need to take a decision?

Even the smallest decisions have the ability/capacity to change the course of our lives

Truthfully, I am always scared of making wrong decisions, so I find myself stalling sometimes.

Other times, in the heat of the moment I might find myself taking a decision I may consider hasty in retrospect.

Sometimes, my decisions turn out good, other times I will say they could have gone better.

All decision have consequences big or small.

Not making a decision is actually a decision in itself. It is the decision to NOT take a decision. There will still be consequences.

As much as I don’t like making decisions, it is needed, and I can’t navigate life without making them.

It is one of the responsibilities God has allowed us to be control of. Having the ability to make decisions comes because we are allowed to have choices.

One of my favourite verses of the scripture is in Isaiah 30v21, where God says you will hear a voice behind you saying this is the way, walk in it.

From this, the one thing I am assured of is that God definitely guides and directs. Problem is that as the flawed human that I am, sometimes I allow myself to be carried away.

Sometimes I may act out of fear, other times, there are so many voices trying to drown out the still small voice of God’s direction.

Another thing I am assured of though, is that all things work together for me, because I love God and I am called according to his purpose.

Even in my good or bad decisions, I will be alright ‘las las’ as my naija peeps will say. SELAH

And your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, “This is the way, walk in it,” when you turn to the right or when you turn to the left. Isaiah 30:21 ESV
