when confounded

Sometimes I’m simply at a loss, not knowing what to do, how to think, hardly which way to turn. I can think I have good answers, and in part that can be true. But perhaps God is moving us to learn new things, or to go in a new direction.

When confounded, it is a good time to be all the more silent, to be in God’s word and in prayer. And to listen. I will add to that, study as well, and read. And seek for godly, wise counsel from others. And not be in a hurry.

How has God helped you during such seasons in your life? What advice might you add here?
