For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the Lord . For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts. "For you shall go out in joy and be led forth in peace; the mountains and the hills before you shall break forth into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands.
Isaiah 55:8-9, 12 ESV
*Obtaining God's promises and following Him is not going to be some logical road all the time where everything lines up and makes sense. Even more so, the answer may have nothing to do with your thoughts/feelings + the opinion of your friends + what makes sense...God is not someone you place in a box nor a predictable individual. Therefore, why confine the possibilities that He can bring you to one or a few options? See the possibilities, but be led by the unctions of the Holy Spirit. .
