The Decision

Each day of my life has been faced with decisions.  Even if I decide not to decide, I'm deciding something! That is what life consists of, decisions!
Much of the time, I am able to make decisions easily and quickly.  I don't stand in the produce aisle trying to decide what to buy.  I don't take hours in the morning deciding what to wear. I seldom question my decision to do what needs to be done. But, right now, I am faced with several decisions, and they all seem large and kind of lurking. And, my question is: "God, what do you want?" I am left in a place of indecision, because I'm not sure which direction is best.
He has told me over and over again that the path is before me and He has it well lit.  Yes, He said "path" not "paths" So, as I stand on the path and it seems to be forking in more than two directions, I come to a standstill.
God continually brings me back to His calling on my life.  "Bethany, I want you to speak!" Which path should I take that allows me to be used in that way the most effectively? What does it look like? And, what do I need to do to get there?
My decision has been, and still is, to surrender to my God.  My decision is to love Him, further His Kingdom, make Him my priority.  My decision is to follow Him, persevere with the calling He has on my life, to listen, to be real and truthful, and to surround myself with others that have those very same desires. My decision is to pray.
The paths are open before me.  I am dealing with some hurt in relation to some of those path, but they are all still there and God will take my hand and direct my way.  I know He will, it's His promise.
Say That Again, Jesus, You are here to take my hand and lead me on the path of Your desires.  Thank you Jesus!
