Inspired decision-making

Suppose you were considering moving from where you live now to a new place, and you asked some friends for advice as to whether or not you should make this important change. Some might give you very good reasons why you should move, while others could have well-thought-out opinions about why you shouldn’t. After hearing a lot of well-meant advice, you could end up more confused than ever.

Many people—including me—have found that a helpful approach to decision-making is to stop and ask God, divine Mind, for guidance. Even if we’ve already been flooded with opinions, it’s never too late to turn to God wholeheartedly with a desire to follow His leading.

How, specifically, can we identify the direction God is guiding us to take? Prayer helps us find an inner stillness that opens our thought to the love and care of God. It enables us to feel God’s presence and peace. In this glow of God’s goodness and love, it may come to us that one option feels a little more right than another. Or that, for now, we should just wait.
