There are circumstances and situations in life that come with pretty clear guidance but then there are those other grey areas…
Things like should I get a job? What job should I get? Should we move home? Should we have more kids? The answer to that last question is no according to my husband!
He’s got a fair point. We have 4 healthy children. We have been blessed. Still not sure where I stand on that issue, probably veering on the no side but I miss baby cuddles. Anyway I digress again… As usual.
My thoughts today are drawn towards a decision we need to make in our lives. We’ve looked into the matter, taken advice from several sources and prayed about the matter also. My own heart has gradually changed after praying over the situation but now I need to know when and if to go ahead.
Little bit of background. My husband had to leave his last position of work, basically because they made him! Actually I shouldn’t joke about the matter, call it gallows humour not that he’s in prison…
Foot in mouth again.
He has a great idea for setting up his own business and it seems to be something that would be profitable and cover our household expenses.
However we’ve had our fingers burnt before and I am wary. Last time he was self employed there was a lot of competition and not enough work to go round.
I know we will get some government help towards start up costs etc and I plan on getting a part time job to bring some extra cash in. I’m just afraid I guess. We have the children to think about and be responsible for.
My head has come round to the idea but my heart is a bit slower to follow..
I wish sometimes there were huge flashing arrows to direct our steps or an audible voice. The thing about trusting God is He doesn’t usually reveal His whole plan for us all at once. He usually just shows you a step at a time. That’s the tough thing about faith and trust I guess.
How do you know when it’s the right time to take a leap of faith?
Any advice gratefully received!
