Sometimes I overthink things which makes decision making a little difficult. I guess it’s part of the DNA for a procrastinator like me. But whenever I am suffering from what I call the paralysis of pondering, I recall a phrase my husband has often used to spur me to action.
I did that recently. After spending another season stuck in the sticky mire of indecision, I followed his advice. I followed my heart and it lead me here.
I’ve learned that overthinking can lead to underachieving but the Word of God simplifies things and makes our mission clear.
“If anyone has material possessions and sees his brother in need but has no pity on him, how can the love of God be in him? Dear children, let us not love with words or tongue but with actions and in truth.” 1 John 3:17-18
Maybe you feel God nudging you as He did me. Maybe you’ve heard the stories of children in need and you know you can help meet that need.
If you’ve been praying about how you can make a difference in someone’s life, be the hands and feet of Jesus in this world, here’s something you might consider.
Compassion International has this crazy goal to get 3,108 children sponsored between Sept. 1 and Sept. 30!
On second thought, that might not be such a crazy idea after all if enough of us make the decision to follow our heart today.
