Every Monday, Allison Fallon (https://allisonfallon.com) sends out a prompt.
Here’s today’s writing prompt: What is one task or action step that you’ve been putting off because you’re anxious about it? Write about the anxiety. Write for 5-40 min.
I want perfect decisions and to know the right steps. I can see consequences and benefits from all sorts of different angles. I can weigh and ponder what would be the “best” but I also know there are unknowns that I do not yet see. A decision might lead to some greater benefits than I imagined or it might bring up some really hard things.
I keep coming back to making the best decision I possibly can with the information I have and trusting God with it all. I want to extend myself grace for the unknowns and even the not so great decisions. Instead of getting stuck in “if only,” I can decide to keep trying and moving forward.
God is still at work even when I can’t see it. He’s not so small that I can derail His plans.
Job 42:2 “I know that you can do all things; no purpose of yours can be thwarted.“
Proverbs 21:30 “There is no wisdom, no insight, no plan that can succeed against the LORD.“
Anxiety, you have no place here. I will not be anxious for anything but in everything by prayer and petition with thanksgiving I will present my requests to God (Philippians 4:6).
