JACKIE DAVIS: Decisions, Decisions, Decisions!

(Continued)

Lockport Union-Sun & Journal — Considering the consequences of your decision is also extremely important. How will this decision effect the significant others in my life? Will it dramatically change our situation for the better? Will it be life changing? Can I recover or regroup if things don’t work out as planned? Is this a selfless decision, or a selfish one? Is there a better way? Do I need the approval or agreement of my family before I proceed?

Years ago, I wrote the song “Center of Your Will” when faced with the decision of whether or not to resign as one of the music directors of a very large, very wonderful church. Doors of opportunity were opening elsewhere, and as a believer in Christ, I was prayerful and torn:

“The Lord is compassionate, gracious and kind; His mercies are new every day;

Our decisions determine the road we will take, but for me I stand and say:

Put me in the center of your will; Move me to the place where I’m to be.

You always know what’s best for me your purpose to fulfill, 

So put me in the center of your will.”

Ultimately, the answer came at a Christian seminar, in the Rocky Mountains, from the heart of my husband. We stepped in a new direction, and we had complete peace.

Whatever you face in the days ahead, I hope you will take time to make wise and godly decisions. You’ll have greater peace of mind, if you do.
