Ambivalent Cord

Laurie could not make up her mind in most cases about anything. It was the same with her mother and her grandmother before her. She was often torn into two directions on every decision. In school, her classmates called her wishy washy or dingy, which did not help her self esteem.

As time went on, she became increasingly angrier, until her double mindedness was a source of aggravation and self-loathing, which was nerve wrecking and left her irritable most of the time.

While waiting one day at a dentist office and after looking through the magazines that were lying around, she saw a Bible on the end table, picked it up and opened to a place totally at random. As her eyes glanced at the scriptures, one line jumped out from the pages. It read, “…pray, counting on God to guide you.” The more she thought about it, the more she felt it would be worth a try.

So from that point on she prayed over every decision and then made a choice of what to do, believing that God would watch out for her. The first thing that happened was that her nerves healed up. She was not experiencing the irritation of not knowing what to do and then because of that, she was no longer angry, which caused her not to feel disrespectful toward herself. The change in her attitude concerning herself affected how others treated her. Adhering to that spiritual direction caused Laurie to have a new outlook on life. Oh and she was making top-notch decisions. I guess Someone was looking out for her.
