It’s OKAY to Choose YOU Sometimes!!

Today I’m super exhausted and not only that, the “mental” part of me is struggling not because I’m having a hard time being positive but more so of the fact that I have a lot of important decisions to make very soon and honestly the pressure is weighing in on me right now.

I feel like I know exactly what God is speaking to my heart and telling me which direction I should go and even though I trust Him, a part of me is still nervous. Why? Because the moves I’m about to make are not only wise ones for the sake of my family but they’re also faith moves and those moves aren’t always easy! In fact, sometimes they’re quite scary but one thing about ’em .. they’re necessary for the kind of life I keep praying for. I’ve learned that over time!

One day, I was scrolling down my Twitter timeline and came across something Hart Ramsey said,

“Do not allow yourself to be forced into a decision that is good for them but bad for you. Ask yourself, “Is this in MY best interest?” If the answer is NO, your answer should be too!”

After I read that, I was instantly reminded that it’s okay to choose me! For the most part, I’ve always been a selfless type of person .. always considering other people, putting their wants and needs before my own a lot of times.

For a little while now, I’ve been wondering what God’s purpose was for this particular “season” of my life and today I think I finally got it! What you’re not willing to walk away from is where you’ll get stuck. In this season, I’ve learned that if you don’t let go of the wrong people, you’ll never meet the right people. If a person, place, job, environment or whatever isn’t adding value to your life, making you a better person and pushing you into your destiny… then you need to make a change!!

At the end of the day, I felt like God had given me a sense of peace and calmed my spirit. The nervousness went away and I grew even more confident in my decision making. As a matter of fact, when I got good and comfortable with my decisions .. it had to be a trick of the enemy to come and try to change my mind! I want to say something before I end this post though:

Not every good thing or good opportunity is a God thing or a God opportunity. In this season, discernment has been the key for me! It is so important to be able to clearly hear God and discern between what’s good and what’s His will. Just because it’s good doesn’t always mean it’s within God’s will for you!!

I love you guys and thanks for letting me vent to you! It’s nice to be able to say what’s on my heart without having to put all of my personal details out for the world to know! Be blessed sweet peeps!!

    1. Absolutely! Its ok to choose you, to look after you. We spend most of our times doing for others and forgetting about us.
      Keep trusting in God and he will direct your path.
      Thank you for the post.

  1. Thanks Jessica! You are right, I totally agree with everything you said Especially that just because it seems great, doesn’t mean that it’s the right choice for you. Thank you!

  2. Thank you so much for sharing this with me. I couldn’t agree more! Just because an opportunity appears to be amazing, doesn’t mean it will work out that way for you. I know this feeling all too well at the moment I’m afraid.

    1. Thanks so much for reading!! Everything that glitters isn’t always gold!! I’ve had to really pray and look for God’s confirmation in certain situations before just making a decision!

  3. Funny, I think God spoke to me through your words and link πŸ™‚ Thank you. This gave me some light on my post about tiredness. I hope you feel more at peace now. Decisions based on faith seem to be really hard to make – we feel we are not in total control… But we need to let the universe do the work as it just did. Thanks a lot, Jessica! <3 Sending love and blessings
