Pardon the cryptic, extended metaphor

I am a person that needs a plan. I need someone to tell me what to do, when to do it, and, to an extent, how to do it. According to the Myers-Briggs type indicator, I am definitely a J!!! I don't like surprises and I don't like it when the planned becomes unplanned. So when a wrench is thrown into a perfectly good situation, it tends to make my mind want to find its happy place. The last few weeks have been stressful to say the least.

I often question why God brings us to forks in the road at the most inopportune times. Both paths seem to offer good travel, so why the does the decision need to be made? Why can't I just keep traveling down the path that I've been on? I wonder if God brings us to these points to help us realize that he has given us a perfectly good path. Maybe he wants us to lean on Him more; these decisions bring us closer to Him. Regardless, these times turn my stomach into an unfriendly companion.

I wish someone would tell me which path to take, but I know that isn't how life works. My J personality is going to have to suck it up and deal with it.

P.S. On a totally random note, I hate Wendy's new ad campaign. You know the one with men singing the praises of Wendy's whilst wearing Wendy wigs? Those wigs are just plain creepy. Not funny. CREEPY.
