Every Friday I join a community of bloggers for Five Minute Friday. One word prompt, five minutes. The prompt this week is … Right.

These last several months have brought about more decisions than one could have imagined. Some decisions came more easily than others. Some were agonized over and brought tears along with an assortment of emotions. But the question always lingered, asked aloud or in our heads …

“How do we know we are making the right decision?”

Essential or non-essential?

Mask or no mask?

Three feet, six feet, or ten feet?

In person or online?

Vacation or not?

Hybrid, remote, or homeschool?

The thing is – everyone is truly desiring to make the right decision. And when the decision is made, each person truly feels their decision is right. No one moves forward with their decision thinking they have made the wrong choice.

Perhaps we each must come to the place of recognizing and respecting the decisions made by others. Be supportive. Encourage them in their decision. Perhaps this will be the way we all come through to the other side.

As we weigh options and seek God to help us make right and good decisions, let’s trust that He is guiding each one of us. The decision may look differently for each of us, but it may still be the right one for each.

“Show me the right path, O Lord;
point out the road for me to follow.
Lead me by your truth and teach me,
for you are the God who saves me.
All day long I put my hope in you.”
(Psalm 25:4-5, NLT)

May we not trust in ourselves, but place our hope and trust in the One who will lead us on the right path!
