There are major junctions in our life where we feel the impulse to make a decision, although in doubt. Like walking through a dark forest and not knowing which way to turn, panic usually sets in. We may feel intense pressure to make the right decision as we fear what will be. We believe that we must take control of our destiny or fate will lead us down the wrong path.
The alternative is to pause and with emunah and bitachon turn to Hashem for clarity. Then with patience and humility wait for our path to appear…it usually does.
