I have come to a crossroads in my character’s path. Because I am writing historical fiction, I have been trying to stay true to historical accounts of his life. But because his life is so far back into the ancient past, there are conflicting histories written about him.
What to do? This has been bothering me for about a week. But I have made a decision. I will pick the path, the history, that makes the most sense for the storyline and roll with it.
And isn’t that so much like our lives? There are many times that I am not sure the right way to go, the right decision to make. After praying and talking it through with loved ones, sometimes I am still at a quandary.
At that point, I just have to go with what feels the most peaceful, what makes the most sense for the story. And roll with it. Pray God blesses the decision. Walk in it.
“Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a Voice behind you, saying, “This is the way; walk in it.” – Isaiah 30:21
Write your story well today. Blessings, Lisa
Good one, Lisa. We have all been there – usually several times a week! I like Isaiah and his common sense. Looks like you have some, too.
I am usually in a quandary of some sort several times a day! LOL. As for my common sense, the jury’s still out on that one. 🙂 Thanks for writing!
Yes, life is full of quandaries and decisions to be made daily! As you said, all we can do is pray about these choices and choose the one that feels right and that we feel God is leading us to choose. Sometimes this is hard, but if it is right, we will feel a peace about it hopefully.
So true! Praying your day is a peaceful one, one with peace about all decisions made. 🙂
