I’m sitting in a Hobby Lobby parking lot right now, watching my daughter sleep while my wife shops for the portrait studio. We just spent the last couple hours talking about a decision we might make.
Decisions are often difficult for me, especially around unfamiliar things.
My wife has helped me get past my fear of ordering from a menu, at least at most places. I still don’t do well with the unfamiliar though. I’ll often order exactly the same thing over and over because I know it’s safe.
I did the same thing with my first car. It was dorky, but when it died I got another one almost the same. It was all I knew.
I talked about decision-making with a wise person once, and he told me often the best choice is the most difficult one, because that’s when you learn the most.
I would add this; that’s when I learn to trust God the most.
We went to a new restaurant last Sunday, and I ordered seafood. It was refreshing to do something new. And it was good too!
After two super dorky cars, my third car was a Camaro. I learned that doing something new, making a different decision, can be rewarding and enjoyable sometimes.
