I had to make a work decision yesterday that came from pure gut. I wish I could say, “And then I felt great relief and knew I had made the right decision”. But it was not that. It was the nagging sense that going in a certain direction was not good. It was also the memory of another time that I did not listen to that small voice that said, “Wait.”
In the self-help, best-seller version of this story I should be getting a call that clarifies the wisdom of my decision. Or I should see a sign from God on my way to work today. Or the call offering me the perfect job should come later today. But alas, no.
Years ago I heard a speaker say, “If it’s not a YES!!!!, then it’s a no.”
That is my only consolation today.
