Have you ever made a decision and God said "WAIT"

Hello all. As many of you know who have been following this blog I have been trying to make a decision about my job. Should I stay where I am or go back into the hospital, where the nurse manager is trying to recruit me to come back to working on the floor. I know the grass is never greener on the other side and am completely aware of the hard work involved in working in the hospital. Well, yesterday I thought I made the decision to move to the floor. I had made up my mind after being called into the office for an incident that happened last week in which many nurses were involved. I will not go into details but it involved complaining about something said in a town hall meeting. So back to yesterday, I decided I could not be quiet about all the changes being made so I should go back to the floor where I could be a positive influence instead of a negative influence I feel I have been. My mind was made up. I knew exactly what to do. I talked to my husband and my step-mom and confirmed I was making the right decision.
This morning I read my devotion with a title "WAIT and LISTEN". The scripture was the story of moses as a baby in the Nile when pharaoh's daughter found him. SO now I am back to waiting. I do not know what the Lord has in store for me here or what is happening. I have to learn to roll with the punches and go with the flow, be flexible. I guess. I will pray to be more flexible and positive and see where the Lord leads me.

So wise...it's always better to wait for a time and seek God's counsel. You know what would happen if you were hasty and found out later that it wasn't in God's plan at all.

Isaiah 40:31 says "Yet those who wait for the LORD Will gain new strength; They will mount up with wings like eagles, They will run and not get tired, They will walk and not become weary."

Waiting is not easy, but waiting for Gods answer will save you from problems later. He will make the decision for you, as plain as your devotional on "wait" is. I am still praying for you and your grandma. God will take care of your grandma for you. Rest in his promises. Dee

Wow - I'm not a good one at the waiting thing...you are a strong woman! God Bless you and give you peace as the right decision comes to you.

It's better to wait than to charge ahead and realize it wasn't where God wanted you. I do that too much!

Blessings....
