  • Decisions. Decisions. Decisions.

    We all face them every day. Some are small. Others are big. But they must be made.

    At times we struggle.

    Proverbs 3:5-6 gives us help in making wise decisions. “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will make your paths straight.” 

    There are some things we can be certain of – God wants us to make wise decisions, to follow his guidance and for us to have clear directions.
