When you don't know what to do. . .
Have you ever felt like you were lacking direction? It happens to everybody at some point. So what do you do when you feel like you don't know what to do? We feel like we don't know what to do, but that isn't really true. I think it is fair to say that most people don't like math, but one thing that my many math classes taught me was how to deal with problems. You can either be overwhelmed by a problem and do nothing, and so the problem goes unsolved; or you can break the problem down to its smallest parts and then solve it. This may sound a little funny, but when you don't know what to do; do what you know to do. In other words, there are things that are always right to do. Reading your Bible, studying your Sunday School lesson, memorizing Scripture, spending time in prayer: I think you get the idea, you can make a pretty long list of things that you know are always the right thing to do. Here's the trick, doing those things will give you direction, so that you will know what you should be doing.
