Jeremiah 29:11

"For I know the plans I have for you," declares The Lord, "Plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future."

Have you ever had something that just totally consumed your thoughts?  Something that took over your mind to the point that is all you thought about?  I have.. And it's almost impossible to change my thoughts to something else.  It could be a hurt from a loved one, a decision you know you need to make but not sure if it's the right decision, it could be a burning desire for something.. That is just out of your reach..  Either way, it leaves you in shambles until you overcome it. 

As a business woman I make decisions daily that affect not only my life but the lives of others. I take these decisions very seriously and when I feel I've made the wrong decision that ultimately let someone down.. It hits me like a ton of bricks.  I've made decisions that have cost me friendships, relationships and consequences that I did not like but the decisions were mine and mine alone. 

I've met many people over the years, as have you.. Some have made me better, some have hurt me, some have left imprints on my heart that could never be erased no matter how hard I try. Some consume my thoughts and some I don't think of anymore.. Either way, all the relationships in my life involve a decision of some sort.. Whether good or bad, the decision is mine and sometimes the hardest decision to make, is actually the right decision. 

I'm learning I must be careful to not base my decisions on feelings alone but look to God to direct me in every aspect of my life.. Even decisions that involve my heart. Just because my flesh and my heart feel it's a good decision.. Doesn't mean it is. 

Though I am weak, He is strong

I can do all things through Christ Jesus Who gives me strength. Philippians 4:13
