Until we are ready to know something or see something, the mystery will stay a mystery. Unless we are absolutely ready to make a change, we’ll stay stuck in the question, “Should I? Shouldn’t I?”
So how do we get ready?
First, do nothing. Especially not in a crisis. We can never make a good decision in a crisis.
Pray up. We can store up our good energy. We can remind ourselves that only God can see around corners and when we get to the corner, we’ll be able to see what we’re meant to see.
Write about it. Grab a piece of paper and let your thoughts flow from your head and heart to the page so you will see them clearly.
Talk to a trusted friend. We don’t have to live in isolation and do everything alone.
Read about it. “At fifteen, life had taught me undeniably that surrender, in its place, was as honorable as resistance, especially if one had no choice,” wrote Maya Angelou.
Surrender. Wait. Pray. Get Ready.
We can try to make a space between our problem and ourselves. In that space, if we’re not cluttered with fear and worry and anxiety, the answer will come. We won’t get any clarity if our thoughts keep running round and round the hamster wheel, running through the same problem again and again.
We can take care of ourselves by remembering that we don’t have to force a solution. We simply don’t.
