What do you do when no matter which way you turn there’s a drawback, a cost, a risk?

How do you settle in on one particular choice when every choice has pros and cons?


I have people I love who are asking these kinds of questions today in situations that range from  their children to their spouse to their career to their health.


Sometimes “easy answers” aren’t available.

Sometimes Plan B has as many drawbacks as Plan A.


I’ve found myself facing these kinds of decisions many times in my life.

I wrestle with some even today.


What do I do when there’s no easy answer??


First, I tell God just how helpless I feel.

Then I don’t do anything for a while.


I try to imagine making each possible decision, and I close my eyes and allow myself to go there in my mind.

Do I have a feeling of peace or uneasiness as I walk down each road?


Time and time again God has proven to lead me to peace even when the decision is not the one that made the most sense to me or even appealed to me the most.


God knows best.


He longs to lead us.


I can talk to a hundred different friends and get a hundred different opinions, but when I finally hand things over to Him who loves me most and wait……..

He is faithful.


In His time.


Today, if you have big decisions to make.

Let God know all your options.

And then pray for peace as He leads.


When hard pressed, I cried to the Lord;
he brought me into a spacious place.
The Lord is with me; I will not be afraid.
What can mere mortals do to me?

The Lord is with me; he is my helper.
I look in triumph on my enemies.

 It is better to take refuge in the Lord
than to trust in humans.

Psalm 118:5-8
