Decision Making: Discerning the Will of God
Making a decision about your career, your future, or the next step to take can be downright frustrating. Plenty of people are quick to put in their two cents to help you make a decision, but it can all add up to a lot of confusion! You have important life decisions to make, and in the midst of swirling opinions, you're left scratching your head about what to do. Your best friend says one thing and your spouse says another, and you just can't figure out what God wants. In the book, Decision Making, Christian counselor, June Hunt, walks you through the decision making process, helping you tackle life decisions with wisdom, confidence, and a lot of grace!
In the first section of Decision Making, June defines key parts of the decision making process, explaining what decision making really is, the role of our 'will' within it, and the meaning of the Will of God constantly mentioned within scripture.
She then prepares you to make the right choice by pointing out the characteristics of good decision making, providing you with the 6 methods of decision making and 8 practical tests for making right choices. She shows how to—
- Navigate through clouds of confusion.
- Overcome natural reactions that may hinder the decision making process.
- Avoid common decision delays.
- Trade in anxiety caused by tough decisions for the peace of being in God's will.
In the section titled, Steps to Solution, June Hunt explains—
Everywhere we turn there are choices to be made, some simple and some complex, some insignificant and some life—changing. Learn the practical and bible-based ways to navigate through the decision making process.

Message from June Hunt
Ann5 Stars Out Of 5Seek GodMay 24, 2014AnnQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I had high expectations for June Hunt's pamphlet on Decision Making. My sisters and I had decisions to make regarding the refurbishment of our Dad's house before we put it on the market. One important thing I gleaned from it was regarding expectations. We are asking for disappointment when our expectations relate to other people. God is the One we need to seek wisdom from, and ultimately the One we need to please. "My Personalized Plan for Sound Decision Making" on page 66 helped me to know what to avoid. "Accept your limitations and the limitations of others" is one way to eliminate expectations from decision making. Relating to others as Jesus did during His ministry on earth keeps us focused on the attainable and releases us from taking on too large a task. If I can share these guidelines with others without being condescending and can encourage other with love our decisions will be easier. June gives loads of scripture for each obstacle we face. The WORD of God used wisely relieves stress and reduces conflict.
