God's Guidance

Wow... I was doing school from 8 AM to 5 PM today! And I still have homework to do over the break. Speaking of break, YEAH, it's finally here!! I need a break from school so bad.

I've been a little confused lately on my music standards and my TV standards and a bunch of other "gray" areas of my life. BUT is there even "gray" areas? I don't really think that there is. I think there's just areas in our lives where we need to rely on God's guidance and discernment for what we need to do [though we should be relying on His guidance and discernment in EVERY decision, EVERY situation, etc.]. And then when we feel that God is telling us to stop doing something, we need to obey Him and stop. When we hear God's guidance, we need to listen to it. But it's in those times when I don't hear God's voice and guidance and discernment that I get confused on. Either I'm ignoring God's voice, I'm not listening for His voice, or there's something in my life that is blocking out God's voice from my life [sin]. I'm not sure which one it is. I want to find out, though, because I feel confused on decisions that I should be making in my life right now about my different morals and standards. People have so many different points-of-view and opinions that I realize I need to know what I believe and WHY and that it needs to be a Biblical, from-God, decision.

"let the wise listen and add to their learning, and let the discerning get guidance-"
-Proverbs 1:5
