That’s what a Stake President once told me. I’ve thought long and hard about that and I must say I agree with him.
After a few years of marriage and a sales position that financially was very rewarding, the company was changing ownership. I didn’t really want to continue to be part of the company with the new owner. I had a couple of other opportunities on my plate. I went to my Stake President (since he was my quorum leader at the time) and asked for his counsel and advice.
We determined that remaining with the company or taking any of the other opportunities were all quite equal in almost all areas. None required moving, all provided about the same flexability, same hours, and relatively the same pay. What was I to do or how do I decide? I tried the D&C 7 & 8 program. I studied, prayed, fasted etc. and didn’t have an answer….that’s why I came to him for counsel.
He told me that sometimes God doesn’t care what we do. As long as I do what I should then any of those choices would be ok, and God doesn’t care.
I quit the company and took another opportunity. I’ve now had the chance to look back many times at that turning point in my life. Would things have been different if I had made a different choice? Of course they would. Would a different choice have made a difference in who I am, or where I’m at spiritually or my family? If the answer is yes, then God should have said something.
