Part Two: Seeking God’s Direction

This post may contain affiliate links. Please see our disclosure policy for details.

When you are faced with major decisions regarding your homeschooling, your family, your own personal role and relationships, seeking God’s direction can seem very challenging. Even your daily decisions can get bogged down with the opinions and advice of others, self doubt, and conflicting messages from our culture.

As I shared in Part One of this two-part series, I discovered that my desire for “confirmation” was really just about me wanting to feel secure that it was OK to make the choices that felt right to me, forgetting that what “feels right” to an imperfect believer isn’t likely to be right in God’s eyes. Since then, I’ve been working intentionally on renewing my mind with God’s Word (Romans 12:2).


In Part Two, I explain why the Bible is a clear starting point for seeking God’s direction. In my personal journey, I have found that starting with five Biblical directives brings God’s will for most situations into clearer focus. Starting with five key passages, I share how I have applied them in my life when seeking God’s direction.
