Can be difficult
When the way is not clear.

There is no right or wrong --
Only a choice.

In such cases
It is the process we follow
And the reasons behind the choice;

Not necessarily
The choice that we make
Or the path that we take.

Is not a God
Of confusion.

Is a teacher

If God
Wants us to follow
A specific path

The way
Will be made clear
In some fashion.

He wants us to grow
Through our choice.

When I was a child my mother would hand me a quarter and let me choose which candy I wanted. The choice was always difficult although there were no wrong choices. There were sometimes things that I was steered away from, but I was always left to choose. The choice was difficult but the reward was great. I always enjoyed the candy. Sometimes I wouldn't open it for hours because I wanted to savor the possession. Sometimes I could hardly wait to tear into it. The choice itself was the teaching/learning experience.

How our life turns out is because of the choices we made along the way.

I'm one of those that has such a challenging time with decisions and choices. But I have learned, as you say, that we learn from whatever choice we make.
