It's a Simple Choice

Bob and I spent some time at Eucharistic Adoration today. It was nice. I don't always get the chance to sit in silence and clear my head. What I love about Adoration is that I'm free from all distractions. There's no liturgy, no formulas to follow, and no noise. It's just me sitting in the silence of God's presence (or God sitting in my silent presence. I'm not sure which description is better.)

As I sat in silence before the Blessed Sacrament, I read this excerpt from What's You Decision? (Loyola Press, 2010):

The point is that decisions lead to more decisions. It can be narrow and misleading to think of decision making in terms of a single decision. The model is a journey. The end is "life forever with God," in the words of [Saint] Ignatius's "Principle and Foundation." The road to this end is a meandering one. (What's Your Decision?,  p. 13)

There's no way to avoid hard decisions. However, I'm growing less concerned about making a decision that will lead me to a better job or make other people happy. Instead, I'm concerned about making a decision that will bring me closer to God.

Man is created to praise, reverence, and serve God our Lord, and by this means to save his soul.
— Saint Ignatius of Loyola
