Right in Front of You

Often we ask a question and fail to realize that the answer is right in front of us and has been presented. The problem lies within us not wanting that particular answer.

This scenario was presented to me by a young man: His girlfriend gave him the ultimatum, he had thirty days to choose between his job or her. I said you already know the answer.  If you quit your job and choose her, then how will we survive. To me that one is a no brainer. He replied that he will pray on it. My response: okay you pray and ask God to change her heart and mind concerning this issue. What if God doesn’t change her heart? What then?

I do understand when you are in a relationship you have invested time, but don’t forget to remember there is always an answer it just may not be the one you hoped for. A lot of times somethings just aren’t meant to be and we as humans try to make things work regardless.

In counseling some of the young girls in this new generation they want their partners to be at home with them 24/7 and that puzzles me, because if he doesn’t work and you don’t work how will the bills get paid.

Just think about the prayers you prayed did you already receive an answer and it’s just not the one you wanted?

Don’t forget to remember, the answer is already presented it is up to you to choose.

  1. Coretta I do understand that, but sometimes it’s hard to let go even when you already know the answer. Great post!

  2. I’ve noticed that too! Sometimes I already have the answer and more times than others it really isn’t the answer I want. Then when I choose to do it my way I always, always in up in a bad situation. I like this post it gives you something to think about. Great job!

    • Thanks for your response Cora. I too have made some bad decisions. I knew the answer and I just wanted what I wanted, then I had to deal with the consequences. Which sometime proved to be hard.
