Recently I’ve been wrestling over how to know God’s will in major life decisions, like where to live, whom to marry, and what job to take.
There’s a lot of advice out there, ranging from people saying that you need to hear a direct word from God, to others saying that you can’t expect direct guidance, but have to make a decision based on wisdom and the information you have.
It’s confusing. To find personal clarity, I’ve gone straight to the source, God’s word itself.
A couple of passages have spoken to me:
Lately I have been thinking about just how quickly life passes. Days seem to fly by in the blink of an eye. It feels like I have scarcely gotten up in the morning when I am lying down again to sleep at night. Apparently, our perception of time speeds up as we get older, and this is certainly true for me. It feels like life is a roller coaster which has been gradually building speed and is now rocketing down hills and around turns at whiplash-inducing velocity.
