I have no idea how many people have sat across from me seeking help in making a difficult decision. More recently I have been teaching the essentials of chess to one of my grandsons. It is interesting to observe his frustration over how to best move his pieces on the board. When it comes to life we can listen to the voice of our hearts when making decisions. Many factors can help us in the process: reading scripture, following spiritual and moral principles, asking for advice from mentors and friends, analyzing the pros and cons of alternative courses of action. We should also learn to find the spiritual meaning of our emotions. God made us to trust experience. This is part of how we are “wired.” We are designed to hear God’s voice through our emotional responses to life experiences. Listen carefully to your heart since it is your move!
