The title is almost funny as I am still not sure of what the final answer should be. But - I know what it is and that part is a relief. I kept going back and forth (driving my spouse nuts with my indecision!) but eventually had to choose. Some paths are so clear that the choice is very easy but there are others that are less clear. This was one of those times and I really feel that God could work through either path chosen. That was the hard place to be - I want it to be certain and clear. I do not like cloudy nor do I like living in limbo, which I've done multiple times in my life. Those have been the times that God uses to teach me more about His faithfulness. He is not caught unaware or napping when something pops up in my life! Nor is He just sitting on His throne waiting for me to miss the mark so He can zap me! He is in control; He sees the big overall picture; He knows what is best for me and for everyone else. All of the pieces of my life fit together with those of people around me. My choices do not just affect me and my little world. Those choices affect those around me as well. It is absolutely awesome to comprehend (in some small way) how God fits all of this together for His greater purpose overall!
I just stand amazed when I think about His power, His presence, His might and yet His involvement in the very smallest minutae of my life.
