I do not understand why a squirrel doesn’t choose to climb the closest tree—or why, once safe in a tree, it wouldn’t stay there until it’s safe to come down. I have seen both situations play out when Wally and Charlie are in pursuit of a squirrel in the woods. Some squirrels make the fatal decision of trying to make it home, instead of climbing the nearest tree.
I also make poor decisions. Before making a decision, I have found it is good to ask God for help first. I have noticed the outcomes are often better and sometimes beyond my expectations.
James 1:5-8 “If you don’t know what you’re doing, pray to the Father. He loves to help. You’ll get his help, and won’t be condescended to when you ask for it. Ask boldly, believingly, without a second thought.”
