Feeling conflicted?

Not long after college, I faced a moral dilemma. I wrestled with what to do, especially since right and wrong didn’t seem totally clear-cut. In my prayers, I was kind of waiting for God to give me “permission” to go ahead with what I felt was a good choice under the circumstances. I didn’t hear a “yes,” but I didn’t hear a “no,” either. So I went with what I felt was right.

Looking back on it, I don’t feel as though I made the best decision, and I’ve sometimes wondered why I didn’t get more of a giant red light from God. Where was the divine “No!” when I needed to hear it?
