How To Know When You're Making The Right Moves


In the game of life, it's not always easy to know if you're making the right moves.  I do know there are times when a decision needs to be made that can change everything.  It turns out that the "leap of faith" I made on February 29, nearly one year ago, was a quantum leap for me and every member of my family.  We sold our abode and moved out of California, our home for twenty-three years.  Here are some lessons I learned from that move:
  1. A family tree that is deeply rooted in faith, hope and love will not fall.
  2. It's not about the storms, it's about weathering the storms.  No matter where you live, there will always be challenges.  I learned that when the wind chill is -30º outside, I have all the warmth I need when I'm surrounded by family.
  3. Any move you make based on values rather than opinions of others is a wise move.
  4. Visionaries love to play leap-frog because they already see the world as it can be rather than as it is.
  5. Prayer works.  I always trusted God with the small things in my life.  The leap of faith had no safety net.  I admit it, I felt like a trapeze artist wearing a blindfold.  Letting go was not easy.  Now, I trust God with everything.
If you are having trouble making the right moves in your life, ask yourself this:  "what am I afraid of?"  Your honest answer to that question will help you advance in the game of life, even if you happen to be wearing a blindfold.
