This past week, I was asked what advice I would have for young women.


I heard a young father give this advice to his children:


The most important thing to remember is, “Indecision is no decision. You make the decision and, right or wrong, you own the decision.”


Next was a story about Sojourner Truth, a black woman born into slavery, who could not read or write. She memorized the Bible and then spent her life walking the roads of America, preaching God’s word. When she was 70, her friends felt she was too old to walk, so she used their horse and buggy.


One day, they realized she could not read the road signs. They asked her how she found her way. She answered, “When I come to a crossroad, I let the reins go slack, close my eyes, and say, ‘God, You drive.’ He always takes me to the right place.”


Finally, I read an article by Norman Vincent Peale about the same subject. It said, “Life is a series of decisions, and the total outcome of life really depends upon our success in making right decisions.”


What you may think is an unimportant decision may prove to be one of the most important turning points in your life.


So, it is good judgment to not minimize any decision.


This is a time of year when high school and college seniors are making decisions about their future life.


Younger students are making decisions about homework, peer pressure, bullying . . . it is all about decisions.


Every decision, great or small, should be made prayerfully, thoughtfully, and with care. It should always be made on the basis of the best knowledge available to you. This may produce immediate results, but it may not, and patience is required. Your decision is either right or wrong. Nothing that is wrong will ever turn out right.
