Inspired decisions

When we need to make decisions, we can go fishing in the sea of opinions, or we can turn to God and get the inspiration that we need.

MAKING decisions is sometimes difficult. There may be insufficient information, or we may not completely understand the problem. Perhaps we deal with the uncertainty by drifting along mentally. Or we may spend our time casting about for solutions. In other words, we may cast our mental line of thinking into the sea of human thoughts and opinions to see what directions we can catch! Perhaps we "troll" our friends' attitudes, hooking as many views as possible, and keeping only those that best fit our goals and objectives.

Certainly the opinions of others are often interesting and sometimes attractive because they are new to our thought. But seeking inspiration from people, places, things, and circumstances may tend to focus our thoughts on the problem rather than the solution. There is also the possibility of being confused by the diversity of human opinions. Pressure may mount, suggesting that there is no answer.
