Decisions become clearer and easier when we base them on what matters most to us. Take time to pause, and think about your values, before all of your choices. Let Your Choices Bring You Closer to God. I find that my best choices, the choices that lead me, and my family, closer to God, closer to each other, and to our best selves, are quite often inconvenient, unpopular, hard and sometimes feel lonely in the short-term. I usually know in my heart that it is the best choice. Once we get through the challenge and all the feelings, there is a sense of peace eventually, that we made the right choice. The choices that are best for our future, are usually the most challenging to make right now, but will bring us the reward we are craving, and a true feeling of content later.
