Decisions..... Decisions

Summer is coming to an end and school is starting soon. Real soon for my daughter!!! Like MONDAY!  

We just got back from a great 7-day vacation with family last week. Mary and I returned on Saturday and she left for camp on Sunday. She returned yesterday, and she was suppose to leave for a two-day camp today and tomorrow. I mentioned school starts on Monday right? Not to mention working alongside my husband with our household needs and business ventures.

This week I was feeling very overwhelmed and I started asking myself "Tiffany are you making the right decisions?" I woke up this morning and I just heard the words "acknowledge me in all your ways". Proverbs 3:6 tells us to acknowledge God in all our ways and He will direct our path. 

Have you ever felt like you acknowledged God but it seems like you still made a bad decision? You ask yourself "did God change His mind? Was it just me?" 

The answer is simple but it's one we overlook. Every decision has fruit attached to it. When you truly acknowledge God in ALL your ways, your decisions will bear good fruit. 

FRUIT! When your mind is telling you to doubt the yes from God, stop and acknowledge God again. Does God change His mind? I can say 1 Corinthians 14:33 tells me that God is not the author of confusion but of peace. Do not settle on a decision until you have peace. 

Seek the Father in every decision you have to make. Find delight in seeking His face.We have to make decisions everyday. Every decision you make today will influence your tomorrow. How do we work through the good vs the godly decisions? How do we choose between the permissible vs the beneficial? How do we decide to say yes vs no or no vs yes? The answer is acknowledge, seek and delight in Christ. 

Psalms 1 :1-3 
Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in the law of the Lord; and in his law doth he meditate day and night. And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.
