A Story

Rod was asking the question. “Should I move to Georgia?” He continued asking, “How will I know God’s will?  I love God and want to do his will. How will I know?” The friend responded, “Many questions roll through our minds as we try to make decisions. Depending on our background, we make those decisions from knowledge, counsel, selfishness, or generosity. If you are making a decision to follow Jesus, that means you are going to want to choose to do what Jesus would want you to do. How do we do that?” Rod wanted to know about Georgia and God’s direction in his life.
