GOD, YOUR GUT, AND SLOWING DOWN

You’ve heard it, “listen to God,” right? You’ve probably also heard, “listen to your gut”. These are very common. If you listen closely, you can hear these phrases being used several times a day. You probably say them yourself – I use them daily.

As I was writing this, I started having flash backs to just this past week of my wife saying these things to me. I can’t remember if I listened to her, I was probably going to fast. Sad but true.

Listening to God and your gut isn’t an easy thing to do. It takes time. Especially today with the pace at which our society moves. I’m actually in a plane writing this now (that is packed) and people are actively doing a million things.

At a hundred miles per hour, how can we slow down enough to listen to God and our gut? Can it really be done? The answer is yes. It just takes a serious commitment, disciple, and a daily pursuit to slow down and listen.

Who wants to do that? I mean, we have a hundred and one things to do today. We have kids to run, homework to do, dogs to walk, and houses to clean. When would we have time? We need to be making time. I’m trying to make time daily to slow down and listen to God and my gut.

The fact is, we have to many people moving to fast that we’ve lost the importance of listening to God and our gut? And because of this, we have horrible decisions being made. I am guilty of it and so are you. I am also working on it. Are you?

When you stop and actually tap into listening to God and your gut, you start to make better decisions. Decisions that benefit you, your family, your companies, your team, and your country. You want that right?

Slow down and listen to God and your gut.

Timing is one of the most important questions you can ask yourself before jumping into anything in your life. Whether it be a marriage, kids, new career, starting a business, or making a move, it really doesn’t matter, just make sure you ask the question. You will be amazed at what you can learn when you actually take the time to ask the question.

THE THREE MOST IMPORTANT DECISIONS YOU WILL EVER MAKE

People make decisions everyday. We make hard decisions, easy decisions, and some that a five year old could make. However, we still have to make decisions. We can not avoid them. No matter what, they aren’t going away. I struggle with making decisions sometimes. Decisions, decisions, decisions they never end. As a matter a fact they get tougher as you grow up and begin to find your way in life.

We hope and pray that we are making good decisions, yet we never find out until we have made the decision. Have you ever made a decision and afterward you were thinking what in the world was I thinking? I can’t even count how many times this has happened to me. I hate the feeling like I made a bad decision. What I learned though is that we can’t have the good without the bad. You know what I am talking about. In our younger years we find ourselves in the bad category more than the good. Why is this? Probably because we are young and it is through trial and error that we begin to find our ways in life.
