This week, we’ve been looking at a few road signs and how they relate to our journeys in life. Road construction means delays. Road closed means we have to find another route.

What about this sign?

Have you ever felt there were too many options?

I remember going off to college. Should I go into accounting, nursing, or teaching? I liked so many things but which major should I choose? I narrowed it to teaching. But, which subject? (Honestly, I couldn’t decide. I majored in Elementary Education so I could teach all of them.)

Then, there was the whole dating scene. Well, some people had this problem. I went to a college where the girls outnumbered the guys at least four to one. But, in my dreams, I debated between dark or light hair. Brainiac or athlete. Musician, pastor, or businessman.

And writing? I’m getting ready for the ACFW Conference in September. Which workshops should I attend? Which editors or agents should I meet with? What should I wear to the awards banquet?

Too many options can freeze us into indecision. But, how do you choose?

  1. Pray for wisdom.
  2. Do your research.
  3. Imagine the results if I chose that option.
  4. Narrow the choices.
  5. Pray some more.

How do you decide when all the options seem like good ones?

    >I feel that way even in little things in life. Like picking out a movie at Blockbuster. It's just overwhelming at times. But a lot of options are a good thing, especially when it comes to careers. I believe we're lead down the path we're meant to take…it just takes time sometimes, and maybe a couple of wrong turns.

    >Oh Candee, Your blog post finally just showed up on my dashboard this afternoon! Isn't that weird? I think blogger had some difficulties with the posts from Friday!

    I'm glad to hear that you'll be going to ACFW in the fall! It will be my first time there and I'm trying to decide about many of the same things that you are! In fact I was just on the phone with my mom this afternoon seeing if she had any dresses that I could wear to the banquest on Sat. night! You're right! Sometimes there are too many decisions!
