This week’s FMF writing prompt is: DECIDE




Many of you know my kids are now young adults — sixteen, eighteen, and twenty-one. As I’ve said to many other parents, the younger years are often physically demanding — lack of sleep, changing diapers, washing clothes, feeding, chasing wayward toddlers — but I’ve learned that the teen years can be spiritually and emotionally demanding. Decision after decision after decision. “Can I do this? Can I go here? Can I stay out? Can I buy that? Can I drive there?”

At times it feels like a nonstop barrage of questions forcing me to decide. What’s the right answer? More often than not, there are pros and cons to each option and not always a clearcut correct choice.

I agonize and debate within my own mind, trying to weigh all the possible outcomes for each choice.

How often I forget that at the end of the day, the Lord’s plan will prevail. His will shall be done on earth as it is in heaven.

I may question every decision I make about my parenting, but I can’t forget the impact of the most important decision of all: the decision to follow Christ and submit to His will for my life. And that decision means no matter what happens, He will work all things for the good of those who love Him (Romans 8:28).
