You Made the Decision, Now Move On

A few years back my husband and I had to make a difficult decision regarding the care of someone very close to us. After we settled on what we felt was the best decision, we later wondered if we did the right thing.

During that time, someone told us, “never beat yourself up for making a decision that at the time you felt was the best decision”.

I sometimes repeat those words to reassure myself when doubt tries to creep in.

There were decisions I made even this past week that I later questioned. But, I told myself I made the best decision with the information I had in that moment.

After that, all I can do is trust God’s word that says, “ALL things work together for good to them that love God” Romans 8:28.

I can honestly say any decision I initially questioned, worked out on my behalf in the long run. Maybe not always the way I thought it would, but it worked out.

If you are beating yourself up over a decision you made, STOP!

It’s done.

Time to move on.

If it’s in your power to change the outcome, then do so. If not, focus your efforts, time and energy on what you can control. Trust God to handle the rest.

Have a blessed day and remember to find the “jolly” in every “moment” life brings your way!

    I have a friend who beats herself up over every decision she makes. I keep telling her, if it’s the best you could do at the time, that is good enough. God even uses our mistakes for His glory.
