Clarity, Please!

On a warm Saturday afternoon, I got ready for my first date. You know the one where the guy has to drive to your house, get out of the car, go inside, and meet the parents before you are allowed to leave? For you young people, this was the norm back in the day! I accepted this invitation without considering what to expect on a first date. (Don't judge me, I lived a very sheltered life!) We exchanged pleasantries and he escorted me to the car, opened the door for me, and away we went.

As we drove to his church for a brief program and dinner, I was so nervous. My heart pounded, my palms were sweaty, and my mouth was dry! Unable to carry on a conversation, we listened to the radio to break the awkward silence. Neither of us had a good time.

Once we arrived at the church, we were grateful for friends who could calm our fears and anxieties through laughter and conversation. We suffered through the quiet ride home and felt relieved when it was finally over.

Have you ever had an encounter like this? One filled with uncertainty, fear, and anxiety? All I wanted was to get back to my house! What a disaster! He must have thought I was crazy! We never went out again.

What was I missing? Clarity.

Before clarity can be gained, a conscious, informed assessment of the choices, consequences, and outcomes must be completed. This is where it got tricky for me. Until I reached adulthood, I had no idea what I wanted. As I matured and gained perspective on the number of choices available, my whole world changed!

How are you finding clarity in your life? Have you set aside time to decide on what you want from your life? What is the purpose of your life?

Now that I have clarity about what I want from this season of my life. I am confident and ready to share my time, talents, and resources with those around me! I desire to help others find their voices and make a difference in their worlds!
