The Dice are cast

I have made a decision in regards to that rock and a hard place I blogged about not long ago. I will not elaborate - not yet. I am not entirely happy with my decision but I feel it is the right one. And, as it turns out, my decision may be moot anyway. It is entirely possible that my desire will not have any sway in the matter. But that is not what is important. What is important is that I sought God out and He was kind enough to speak to me (not audibly). Over the past week or so God has been giving me scripture versus here and there. The Holy Spirit has been bringing to light issues of pride that may have influenced my thought processes. In the end I am keeping a promise and if the contrary of this decision still happens I am at peace. I will be able to focus on the things I need to focus on. Thank you all for your prayers and encouragements. Verse for today: Psalm 139, ESV O Lord, you have searched me and known me! You know when I sit down and when I rise up; you discern my thoughts from afar. You search out my path and my lying downand are acquainted with all my ways. Even before a word is on my tongue, behold, O Lord, you know it altogether. You hem me in, behind and before, and lay your hand upon me. Such knowledge is too wonderful for me; it is high; I cannot attain it. Where shall I go from your Spirit? Or where shall I flee from your presence? If I ascend to heaven, you are there! If I make my bed in Sheol, you are there! If I take the wings of the morning and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea, even there your hand shall lead me, and your right hand shall hold me. If I say, “Surely the darkness shall cover me, and the light about me be night,” even the darkness is not dark to you;the night is bright as the day, for darkness is as light with you. For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother's womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. [1] Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from you, when I was being made in secret, intricately woven in the depths of the earth. Your eyes saw my unformed substance; in your book were written, every one of them, the days that were formed for me, when as yet there was none of them. How precious to me are your thoughts, O God! How vast is the sum of them! If I would count them, they are more than the sand. I awake, and I am still with you. Oh that you would slay the wicked, O God! O men of blood, depart from me! They speak against you with malicious intent; your enemies take your name in vain! [2] Do I not hate those who hate you, O Lord? And do I not loathe those who rise up against you? I hate them with complete hatred; I count them my enemies. Search me, O God, and know my heart! Try me and know my thoughts! [3] And see if there be any grievous way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting! [4] -note, I could not choose just one small section... it all seemed appropriate.

God is good and I know He'll continue to walk with you even between the "rock and the hard place".

Praying for you.
