Decisions, Decisions...

Do you ever feel stuck?
And you don't know what to do?
And you don't even know how to begin to get out?
Or maybe you don't want to get out?
Or maybe you do...but you're in just deep enough that it will hurt when trying to get out?

Just when we thought things were going great, some other things happened.
So we've come to a crossroad.
Do we keep on trucking down the same road?
Digging even deeper, trusting someone with our ideas that may not work, or they may not want to listen?
Thinking they've done this before but it didn't excel, so why try again?
Or do we make a left turn and begin again?
Hoping that where we do end up will be a perfect match?

"They" say that when you feel something, you're likely not the only one feeling it.
Hmm...I find this true in most cases.
Right now...I don't even know how to begin to look for people experiencing the same, feeling the same, wanting the same...
Simply stated, it's frustrating and lonely.

My struggle is this:
Do we stay put and attempt for who-knows-how many more months, to hopefully make it better for someone else, and hopefully make it better for us?
OR
Do we head back to square one, starting over, and hope that the already established is exactly what we need and where we're supposed to be?

Being a follower of Christ is really hard sometimes. 
Part of me feels like if we decide to head back to square one, that we're just being a fan.
I don't want to be a fan...someone who sits by and roots for Jesus, but doesn't do anything about what it truly means to be a Christian.
I want to do what He asks of me.

The other part of me feels like that even if we do start over, that God could always call us back to where we were.
Knowing that, gives me a little bit of comfort.
But it still leaves us with the question:
What do we do?

We will continue to pray and ask God to open doors for us.
Maybe he doesn't care which option we choose as long as we're serving Him whole-heartedly.
I haven't figured that out yet.
But when I do...I'll let you know.

For now, what do you guys do when you feel like you're at a crossroad?
How do you choose what road is the right path for you?
