Sometimes the margins are clear. Sometimes good vs. evil are not grey areas. Sometimes decisions are easy. Sometimes all the components are blatantly apparent.

And sometimes none of it is. Sometimes it helps to ask for advice, but then you have to determine whether the advice is good.

Following road signs is obvious. Nobody questions a stop sign. If it is ignored it is not because no one knows what it is.

Season changes are obvious, for people who live where seasons actually change. Air gets warmer or colder. Leaves bud on the trees, flowers bloom. Or flowers die, leaves change colors.

Why can’t everything be so simple? Decisions have impacts. Or sometimes a door opens. Or closes. How do you know if it’s a door to enter. Or if it’s simply an obstacle testing your perseverance?

Some decisions are mine, others are made by contingencies. I pray to have grace to handle change out of my control, discernment and strength to persist, and the proverbial wisdom to know the difference.
