When I was little, I wanted to play on the monkey bars more than anything else.

I was afraid, and I couldn’t get myself to release one hand from the first bar and to grab the next one. No matter how hard I tried, the fear of falling paralyzed me.

I still feel like this sometimes when making a decision. I ponder and pray. I analyze the how and what ifs. I desperately want to know what is the right decision to make!

Suddenly, I find myself hanging on that first bar, paralyzed from moving forward.

God is eliminating this analysis paralysis by showing me there is no perfect decision. If I desire to please Him with the decision I make and afterward it proves to be a mistake, it’s an error, not an end.
