just occurred to me while I was watching Grey's Anatomy (don't read this post if you're waiting until this weekend to watch the Grey's episode). Seeking God and His wisdom through prayer results in me not making as many rash (and often irrational) decisions. Before I was a Christian (and even sometimes now), I would impulsively make a decision based on how I felt at the moment I was making the decision. And then of course the next day or week I'd wonder if I made a mistake.
Now when I'm making an important decision (and even some not so important decisions), I pray. Granted, I don't pray enough, and I sometimes forget to ask for God's guidance; but in general, I don't make quick decisions and do my best to turn things over to God. Before Donatello and I quit dating, I did a lot of praying; several months of prayer went into the decision to end the relationship. And there were definitely days when I felt certain that it was time to end it before the actual ending, but then other days I wasn't sure. The upside of prayer and giving it over to God was the certainty I feel now and the peace that came with the end of the relationship. Sure, it's still not easy (breaking up rarely is), in part because I'm a retarded, sentimental, emotional girl, but it's so much less difficult than past break-ups because I don't have to wonder if I made the wrong decision. God answered my prayers, and I think that because I'm so dense (I'm still waiting for God to get gmail), he even continues to reaffirm the answer to me so I'll feel a peace about it.
McDreamy, on the other hand, is an idiot. Prayer or not, the way he handled the ending of his "relationship" with Meredith is infuriating. So his soon to be ex-wife says one sentence to him, and he makes a big decision (with no real discussion) with less than a few hours thought. Ridiculous. Doesn't he owe her a little more thought than that? Shouldn't that be the kind of decision that's made after at least a few days of thought? That kind of impulsive decisions just smacks of immaturity and thoughtlessnes. And yes, I just used words like "infuriating" to describe a television program involving fictional characters. I'm officially a loser.
