Once, after the kids were gone to school, and Derek was off to work, I was trying to decide what to do. There are always plenty of choices and, as is often the case, I was trying to decide which was the "right" one. I had been feeling a little low for a few days. Should I read a particular book? Should I study the scriptures more? Should I exercise? Work outside? Write? Play an instrument? Go do some grocery shopping? Call someone? There are always things to choose from. I was feeling frustrated and discouraged. What should I do?
Finally, I desperately sent up a prayer asking what I should do and, in one of the most clear answers to prayer I have ever received, I heard the words, "Do Something!" It was so clear that I laughed out loud. I knew I had been over thinking things again. I immediately got busy doing something. I don't remember what. What I do remember is that the discouragement I had been carrying around disappeared, and I was happy. Sometimes, the right thing to do, is to simply do something!
