Sometimes in life we find ourselves at a crossroads;
a place of decision, a place of testing, a place in which
we do not know which way to turn. When we come to that place,
what do we do? Do we toss a coin? Do we rely on others
for the answer? Do we do nothing and just fall out in
the middle of the road? The answer of course is
none of the above.
When we find ourselves at that place, that is the time
to draw within and seek that small still voice for the answer.
In that voice we will find direction based on purpose.
I'm sure you've heard the term "follow the money",
well in times of decision that term may not always apply.
Following the money, may end up leading you
down the road that is ultimately a dead end.
Then there are some who might decide to take the road
which looks easiest to navigate; the path of least resistance.
While that road is smoother to travel, it may just end up
being the scenic route and take you quite some time
to get to where you want to go.
The road to take, is the one that leads you directly
to your purpose. In order to recognize this road in your
minds eye, you will need to take an honest look at yourself and
determine just exactly who you are. That's the hard part.
Lets be real, sometimes we like to lie to ourselves.
We try and convince ourselves that we are who our
parents want us to be or who our spouses desire for us to be.
At times we even try to be the person who we think everyone
will like. In reality, who we are can only be defined by our Creator.
Once we tap into that force, then and only then will we
know who we are. It is in that moment;
the moment that we decide based on purpose
and true passion that the choice becomes easy.
Just a word of warning. Once you are on the right road,
expect a few curves, even a possible flat tire. But there is one thing
you can be sure of. This road will lead you to your expected end.
When you arrive, even if you are tired and worn out you
will know that without a doubt, it was worth it.
