5-Day Challenge to Better Decision-Making

None of us would expect to find two strangers waiting on our doorstep. I'm sure she didn't either.

Wouldn't it be dangerous to let them in? Are these the wanted criminals she'd heard rumors about? Why her house? Why now?

No doubt, questions swirled like a tornado in her mind. She had her family to think about. Her home. Her future. Yet at a time when she had to make a life-altering decision, she seemed to know exactly what to do.

Her name was Rahab, and she was a stellar decision-maker.

I often strive to be a better decider. I can't tell you how many times I've prayed, "God, tell me what to do!"

But the thing is, sometimes God gives us opportunities to make choices so we can grow in wisdom. He loves us that much. But it's during those times the enemy would like to convince us that God has left us alone. That He abandoned us. But that's nothing but a lie meant to discourage us, because God's Word says this.


"For He Himself has said, 'I will never leave you nor forsake you.'" Hebrews 13:5 NKJV


Rahab's story reminds me of this truth.

God is for us. (Tweet this.)


Her story has inspired me to become better at making decisions. And if you've ever struggled with decision-making like I have, I hope you'll join me.

I created something new to help us on this journey, a mini-Bible study called Walking with Rahab: A 5-Day Challenge to Better Decision-Making.

In this 5-day challenge, we will walk with Rahab through the challenging decisions she faced and learn valuable truths through her actions and words. Truths that we can apply to our own lives today.

You'll get 5 days of devotions sent to you by email. At the end of the 5 days, I will also send you a Scripture-based prayer printable for those times when you have a difficult decision to make. It's my gift to you:)


This month I will be welcoming some friends here to share about times when they had to make decisions, and the discoveries they made through God's Word. Because it helps to hear from people who've been there.

We may not always make the right choices, and that's OK. But we can learn how to have joy and peace through the decision-making process.



(P.S. If you are already receive my weekly emails, you will still need to let me know if you'd like to get this mini-study sent to you. You can either enter your email address at the link above or just reply to this week's email I sent you with a "Yes!")

5 Best Posts for When Trials Come

The death of a loved one. A natural disaster. A diagnosis that interrupts life's flow. I've seen each of these difficult situations described on social media in the past weeks. Some from strangers, while others hit close to home.

Knowing others are suffering causes a stifling weight to press down on my heart. It's easy to feel helpless. Powerless.

But we are not without power. We just need to know where to look to find the right encouragement for when trials come.

Through personal trials of my own in recent weeks, I've had to call on others for support. And with their help and encouragement, I've been able to see God's sovereignty and feel His presence.

I've compiled a few articles that uplifted my spirits during difficult trials. I pray they will offer a source of comfort and peace for you today.
