Right: morally good, justified, or acceptable.
But is it right?
That’s the question I ask myself a million times in a week.
You see, I have a natural tendency to overthink things, and anytime I go to make a decision I ask myself, “I want to do this, but is it right for me? Is this what I’m supposed to do?”
These are good questions to ask, just as long as you don’t take it as far as I often do and begin to anxiously agonize over the decision.
But is it right is a good question to ask ourselves.
Oftentimes, when an opportunity comes our way, we are quick to jump in without first thinking about it.
Because sometimes, everything might seem good on paper, but it might not be right for you.
For example, you might see a car for sale that has all the bells and whistles, has low mileage, nothing’s wrong with it, and it’s within your price range. Everything seems perfect!
But if you’re not able to drive, then it’s not right for you.
If you found a really good deal for a personal plane, but you were scared to fly, that wouldn’t be the deal for you, right?
So as you go to make decisions this week, make sure they are right for you.
Does this line up with my morals and my beliefs?
Is this something that is acceptable in the sight of God?
Is this something I feel God has for me?
Is this right for me?
Don’t overthink it and stress yourself out. Lay the situation at God’s feet, examine yourself, and trust that He’ll help you make the right decision.
When you do this, you’ll get a clearer vision for what God has for you, and what the right decision is.
