There are times when we feel pressured to make a decision in a hurry or based on how we feel. If we are honest about it, I am sure we can remember when we made decisions in haste and without seeking God first. Money was spent when it was not necessary. Small messes became bigger messes. I could go on and on, but you get the point.

It is important to gather the necessary information needed to make the best decision. It is wise to seek counsel from others but most importantly, seek out what the Bible has to say about it. But before you do anything, pray about it before you go about it.

"Form your purpose by asking for counsel, then carry it out using all the help you can get." Proverbs 20:18 -The Message Bible

"Careful planning puts you ahead in the long run;
hurry and scurry puts you further behind." Proverbs 21:5 -The Message Bible

Be blessed.

There are times when you must stay in the background or perform your work behind the scenes. Then there are times when you have to perform and take center stage. Don't think it's strange. God has a way of propelling us to new roles and to new levels at any time.

Timing is important in all you do. Most of us are guilty of making the right move at the wrong time. It felt right, so we acted based upon our feelings alone. When doing this, mistakes are often created. Well, more like messes. A mess can become a bigger mess. Seeking God first in all we do and following His lead will help avoid the messes and provide great successes.

Working in the background or behind the scenes is usually necessary to prepare you for a greater role. Once the preparation is complete, God will give you a gentle nudge to move out front. If needed, He will push you on to center stage.

"Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time, casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you." 1 Peter 5:6,7

Be blessed.

We have made mistakes and will continue to make them. We can allow mistakes to break us or make us. They can cause us to break if we choose to dwell on them and keep replaying them in our minds. The replays of what should have been done, said, or not done or said is enough to drive anyone mad or to the point of bitterness. What is done is done. 

We do not have the power to erase mistakes but we do have today. Today is a gift from God and offers much to usToday offers a chance to learn from mistakes made on yesterday. Today gives us the opportunity to right a wrong. Today we can choose to become better. Do not let mistakes keep you from moving forward in life and doing great things for yourself and others.

Be blessed.
