I am a terrible decision maker.


I am also a perfectionist.

The idea that I can make a choice now that I later realize is not the absolute best choice drives me insane.

And let me tell ya…

Perfectionism and decision-making don’t go well together.

I freeze up when it comes to making a decision about things I really don’t later want to regret.

While careful decision making is a good thing, careful decision making to the point of paralysis is not.

It’s a bad, bad thing.

So when my friend Kandis sent me the following message via email, out of the blue, without knowing that I had any particular problem, and it hit home so hard that I sat in front of my computer reading it and re-reading it through teary eyes and a racing heart, I knew God gave her this message for me.

And tonight I re-read her message to me and realized that it’s not just for me.

It’s for you too.

So I’m going to put Kandis’ message to me out there on the world wide web… not because I know your particular problem but because God does and He knows who needs to read this and for whom this message will hit home hard.

And if you have to read and re-read it over and over again, that’s ok.

You won’t be reading it by yourself.

I’m sure of it.

Just Go


It’s tough to choose sometimes when there are 20 ways to do something and all 20 of those ways have 40 advantages each.

But there comes a point when we just have to choose.

Many of the choices we agonize over just aren’t worth the added stress. {Click to TWEET}

Just choose.

The beauty of lots of the choices we face and decisions we make?

They are not permanent.

Making the decision to “go” is just deciding to move.

It doesn’t mean you’re married to your choice or have to keep it that way forever.

The fullness of vision will come.

Just go.

The people you need to help you will come.

Just go.

The resources you need to make things happen will come.

Just go.

Pick a date. Pick a way. And go.

Name it later.

Change it later.

Figure out all the boring formalities later.

In the meantime…just go.

people are waiting

People are waiting and you have all that you need to start.

You know enough to go.

If you have to have the full vision to go, then there’s no need for faith.

Having the full picture would absolutely make for a boring, predictable God-less story. {Click to TWEET}

You know enough to go.

So just go.


And then God, like He loves to do, brought this Scripture to my mind because He’s an “add-a-cherry-on-top-kind-of-God”.

new thing


“Behold, I will do something new,

Now it will spring forth;
Will you not be aware of it?
I will even make a roadway in the wilderness,
Rivers in the desert.

Isaiah 43:19 (NASB)
