What Are The Odds?

Posted: April 16, 2014 in World On The Edge

There’ve been times when I’ve felt totally defeated, when something I thought might happen, something I thought I wanted more than anything,  did not happen.

Have you been there, too? Hoping? Waiting? But knowing that the ‘happening’ was probably against the odds.

What’s the best thing to do? Keep on hoping? Keep on waiting?

Or is it best to let go and change the path?

If only someone could tell us–right?

But  whatever we do, is actually up to us, isn’t it? . We can ask opinions about the pros and cons, but ultimately the ‘buck’ stops with us.

This is when we must make a decision. And decisions are terribly difficult at times, because we know that we have to live with the result, whatever it might be.

I have made such decisions in my life, as I’m sure you have.  And when I look back, I sometimes see that I’ve made the right decision. And sometimes, the wrong ones.

Still we can’t go through our lives without a spine. We can’t be wish-washy forever. We have to take a stand one way or the other.

That takes prayer and opening ourselves to God.  In fact, after we’ve made our decision– with God in mind– it takes giving whatever problems come from our choice, back to His leadership of our lives.
