So You Have a Big Decision to Make

The ‘Check Your Pocket’ for the soul

Do you have to make a big decision? Have you asked a whole bunch of wise people and read a bunch of big books on what to do? And still don’t feel peace? Is it possible that you have forgotten to talk to God about it in prayer?

This is a spiritual version of the, “Have you checked your pockets?” reminder.

God wants to weigh in on your decision. He wants to be a part of it. He wants to reveal a different way to think about it. He wants to provide push-back. He wants to be the friend to say, “No matter what the decision or what the outcome; I’ll still be there for you.”

We know there is no problem too big or too basic, but oh how we rob him of our friendship.

May we meditate on this hymn:

What a Friend we have in Jesus,
 All our sins and griefs to bear!
What a privilege to carry
 Everything to God in prayer!
O what peace we often forfeit,
 O what needless pain we bear,
All because we do not carry
 Everything to God in prayer!
