I'm the Queen of Second Guessing. You know, I'll say something and ask myself later: "Should I have said that?" Or I'll do something and ask myself later: "Should I have done that?"
The issue isn't what happens from our choice. But whether God led us—regardless of the result.
Another consideration is: what was our motive? That could reveal whether we were being empowered by the Lord. (Tweet that!) If our reaction is to pay back or defend ourselves or to prevent being seen in an unattractive way, then most likely God didn't guide us.
I don't know that I'll ever be completely cured of Second Guessing. But God is using it to reveal my motives and to teach me to look to Him even more.
How do you deal with any of your Second Guessing tendencies?
Just a reminder: if you haven't had a chance yet to go to the CAN (Christian Authors Network) Hunt where you can win lots of great prizes: Check it out!
