Today we are going to explore how we can recognize God’s Spirit guiding us to make decisions that fall in the “gray areas” of life–those places where there is no clear “right or wrong” answer. These are the most difficult decisions but take heart: God speaks to us in ways each of us can understand: inner urging, confirmation, and results.
Words have yet to be invented for me to express my gratitude for my wonderful KCUMC family. First I had a month of humbling joy in Oct. as you all expressed your appreciation for my pastoral leadership. Then through this last week you have supported me as I grieve the loss of my best friend, Cuddles. You thoughtful prayers, cards, texts, emails, phone calls, visits, food, and a cute Cuddles’ colored Teddy bear have keep me going. Thank you and God bless you for your kindness. All my love to each of you—Pastor Susan.
This week’s sermon discusses the four providential ways that God helps us make complex decisions: Our desires, abilities, circumstances (open doors/closed doors), and mature counsel. God uses this combination to help us make not just good choices, but the best choice when faced with complicated issues.
We make dozens of decisions every day. Most of these are inconsequential, some are important, and a few are life-changing. Today we are examining the tools we use to make these decisions and look at the role of spiritual discernment in making choices.
Encouragement and steadfastness are not just ways of life, they are the way to life. We can be the life buoy others need by our trust, inclusiveness, and generosity. Above all, never lose sight of the possibility in ourselves and others.
