Today I was considering a leap that could cost money.
It could also spur a lot of personal and possibly professional growth.
It was a little frightening, but not super high-stakes.
Right at the point of decision to get more involved, I asked God about it.
I was nervous. (Praying is good for that.)
Right then, I got an important text message that stopped me from that decisive phone call.
I was able to back off and get some perspective and wait a bit longer.
I thank God for that significant (to me) slow-down.
Maybe I will still take that risk, but now I feel better if I do. I am not allowing myself to be time-pressed into a decision. I am giving it some time. This is not necessarily fear. It could be wisdom.
But, as we know, praying always is.
