Day 11, January 11

Do you have a problem making decisions?  I do.  I want to gather data.  I want to know everything there is to know about a subject.  I want to know that I'm making the very best decision possible.  Sometimes this process works, and the decision turns out well.  And  sometimes I vacillate until it's too late and I've made a decision I didn't want by default.

Then there are the times when I invite the Savior in to the decision making process.  What a difference.  When I listen to the Savior's voice and take His guidance, I am confident in my decision.  Too frequently, though, I forget to invite Him.   Pretty dumb, huh?  Why don't I remember that His counsel will never lead me astray? 

So, for today, I am grateful for those times when I remember to include the Savior.

  1. Not only do I have problems making decisions, I have trouble acknowledging that a decision I have made is a bad one and needs to be remedied. At those times, it's all too easy to picture the Savior sighing at me. But I don't believe he does. I believe his hand is stretched out still.
