President Ezra Taft Benson taught, “Making decisions is probably the most important thing people ever do… Nothing happens until someone makes a decision.”

.

Glen Tuckett taught us that, “Today’s world presents constant challenges. You are forced to choose between attractive alternatives, compelled to make value judgments, obliged to solve problems, and pressured to make decisions. Many of these decisions are important to you now. Some will have an influence on your opportunity to enjoy an exalted hereafter and will have a lasting effect for eternities to come”.

.

Elder L. Tom Perry, “There is a great account in the very beginning of the Book of Mormon of a family that had some grave decisions to make. Just imagine that you are living in that time and you are a member of Lehi’s household. You are living in Jerusalem in a very comfortable home, warm and secure, surrounded with many of the good things of life. As you arise one morning, your father calls a family council.

He states that he had a dream last night, and then makes a startling statement to you: “Go get your sleeping bags and the tents. Just take what provisions we can carry on our backs. Don’t worry about the gold and silver and your precious things. We will have no room for them. I have been commanded by the Lord that we should depart into the wilderness”.

.

Alma 37:37 Counsel with the Lord in all thy doings, and he will direct thee for good; yea, when thou liest down at night lie down unto the Lord, that he may watch over you in your sleep; and when thou risest in the morning let thy heart be full of thanks unto God; and if ye do these things, ye shall be lifted up at the last day.

.

1 Nephi 2:4 And it came to pass that he departed into the wilderness. And he left his house, and the land of his inheritance, and his gold, and his silver, and his precious things, and took nothing with him, save it were his family, and provisions, and tents, and departed into the wilderness.

1 Nephi 16:24 And it came to pass that he did inquire of the Lord

28 And it came to pass that I, Nephi, beheld the pointers which were in the ball, that they did work according to the faith and diligence and heed which we did give unto them.

29 And there was also written upon them a new writing, which was plain to be read, which did give us understanding concerning the ways of the Lord; and it was written and changed from time to time, according to the faith and diligence which we gave unto it. And thus we see that by small means the Lord can bring about great things.

30 And it came to pass that I, Nephi, did go forth up into the top of the mountain, according to the directions which were given upon the ball.

.

1 Nephi 17:13 I will prepare the way before you, if it so be that ye shall keep my commandments; wherefore, inasmuch as ye shall keep my commandments ye shall be led towards the promised land; and ye shall know that it is by me that ye are led.

.

1 Nephi 15:8 And I said unto them: Have ye inquired of the Lord?

    I’ve learned something very particular information in these article. That on decision making there will be consequences.
    It may be bad or good. Whenever it is bad; you need turn back and continue to the other road. That makes you felt bit lost; but you didn’t know that Heavenly Father’s guidance is always there. You just need to ask for it.

    And turns out of the result; there will be a GOOD result of what you’re experiencing right now
