This journey of life will cause you to rethink priorities quickly. Sometimes, left to our own decisions we make bad turns, and then we actually switch priorities to make up for, or to catch up on. Don't get me wrong. You are constantly having to reevaluate, but what I have found is your ability to make informed decisions or to effectively reevaluate an issue can be so much smoother when listening to the guidance of Holy Spirit.
Too often you consult everyone else first before consulting God. The major difference in everyone else, including yourself is that the view is so small and skewed by the life you know. You need someone bigger to walk with you through those things you don't know. I know it to be true because I have watched so many people waste so much precious time worrying about what may happen and trying to devise the plan for each outcome.
Ahh, but when you bring God into the decision, when you allow self to follow divine guidance you can breathe easier. Believe me, you want the place of breathing easier. You see, it is out of that place of breathing easier that you recognize that you don't react like you once did, you don't fumble over stupid stuff like you used to do. It is out of that place of breathing easier that you realize you can evaluate with divine help. It is out of that place of breathing easier that you realize that stuff does not affect you like it did. You need that place. Take it one step at a time. Invite God into your question, into your problem, and wait. . . enough for now.
