Decisions, decisions…sometimes the decision to do nothing is wise. But you can’t make a career of doing nothing. The New York Times explained it this way: ” Freddie Fulcrum weighed everything too carefully. He would say, ‘On the one hand…but on the other.’ And his arguments weighed out so evenly, he never did anything. When Freddie died, they carved a big zero on his tombstone.” Not much of a legacy there.
To set yourself free from the worry and anxiety of making choices, you have to first accept personal responsiblity. Don’t pass the buck when it’s time to make those decisions. Tough decisions. Lonely decisions. Unpleasant decisions. Misunderstood decisions. Courageous decisions. Decide and don’t leave it to someone else to make the decisions for you.
In other words, if you decide to fish–fine. Or if you decide to cut bait–fine. But if you decide to do nothing, you’re not going to have fish for dinner.
And if I remember correctly, Jesus often had fish for dinner. Hmmm….
Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. (Philippians 4:6)
Trust God from the bottom of your heart; don’t try to figure out everything on your own. ( Proverbs 3:5)
