I don’t know if I would. I’m likely to look/wait for more ‘signs’. Still learning to recognise the peace that comes with a good decision. But there’s at least one clear signal from a coin flip – if I get heads and I feel disappointed/unhappy, then my heart has spoken and I really wanted tails. (Hmm, maybe the voters who spoilt their votes because they didn’t know who to vote for, should have brought and used a coin.)
We often talk about decision-making as a tussle between head and heart. Having read this article, I’d now say it’s a head-heart-hands thing. Yes, it could be ‘hands’ in that I actually flip a coin and get on with life! But also ‘hands’ in the sense that I know I can go ahead, decide and act, with prayerful consideration – without fearing. Whether I decide more with my head or my heart in that prayerful posture, it will be well – because God will take care of it. And of me!
