What Do I Do

“Show me the right path, O LORD; point out the road for me to follow.” Psalm 25:4 (NLT)

Do you ever feel like you’re going in circles and not making any progress? At least not the kind of progress you were expecting.  YES! Thank you Proverbs31.org and Leah DiPascal for this post called “Lord, I Don’t Know What to do“.

If you’re like me, you have plans and dreams you want to fulfill. But life is confusing at times. And most days it seems like you’re just surviving instead of living out those dreams or accomplishing your goals.  There have been days I’ve felt like one foot was fixed to the floor, while my other foot scurried in every direction. Expending a lot of energy and mental fatigue, but going nowhere. Can you relate?

YES! YES! YES!  I can relate to this whole article.  When I am overwhelmed which happens more often than I like to admit – I start to second guess myself.  You know what I mean, right?  Am I on the right path?  I could be 100% confident about something, I stop and pray for God’s guidance THEN I wonder if it is part of God’s plan for my life.  I start looking for concrete signs that I am walking the right path.   Admit it, you have felt like this too!!

I love this reminder that when our hearts are humble and truly seeking God’s will, we can be confident of this:

  1. God will always show us what is right for us.
  2. When we get sidetracked, God will direct us back to the right path.
  3. We are not alone. God leads and teaches us along the way.
  4. God leads those who obey Him with unfailing love and faithfulness.

If you’re unsure about some things in your life, don’t wait another day to figure it out on your own. Ensure your heart is in the right place of humility, and then ask God to help you. Once you’ve asked, trust that God is directing you.

I have written down my goals.  I have shared them with my accountability partner, my hubby and my team.  I have prayed on them.  I believe that God will bless me as he has in his time, not in mine.

So, the burning question of “what do I do?” will be answered if I LISTEN and wait for God to show me the way.  My only concern is that I will use the “wait” as an excuse to not move forward.  An excuse usually opens the door for Doubtful Debbie and Negative Nellie to pay a visit.  Which causes me to WAIT longer than I should, allowing opportunities to pass without any action on my part.


I am going to live the life that I have imagined – as a good wife, a Senior Director with financial freedom with a strong and growing team.  I will trust that God will guide and direct me along the way….

Have a ThirtyOne-derful day!
