Decision-making Basis

I’ve been thinking a lot about how we are affected by our momentary feelings and how important it is to not act solely on feelings.  We need an objective source of motivation to make important decisions and then we can always go back to that if we are “feeling” indifferent about decisions we have made.  Our emotions have truly resembled a roller coaster ride over the last month.  Our feelings ebbed and flowed a lot and I was amazed at how much they could fluctuate within a day or two.  If our actions and decisions had been based on emotions, we would have acted wildly and made some decisions that we would not be happy about today.  But because we followed God’s leading in our decision to adopt, we are secure that we are doing the right thing because we are confident in God’s guidance.
