The truth is you do have a sense of His leading. That is the problem. It differs from what you think the decision should be. After all, your response seems safer, responsible, wise, prudent and logical.
Walking your road may appear smart, but it carries risk for catastrophe. Now consider His leading. If you step in it, you demonstrate trust and faith in Him, although catastrophe remains possible. Remember, His way are not our ways.
There is a very real truth that until catastrophe happens, you are less willing to trust, and demonstrate faith in Him. When you have nowhere else to turn, you turn to Him. We all do. The challenge is trusting Him when you do have a choice and that choice carries the potential for negative outcomes. We can never know the future - health, finances, relationship, employment - nothing is assured.
Know this...He is there, whichever choice you choose.
God often uses negative circumstances in our lives for good. You can't judge whether or not the decision is correct by the outcome. The outcome can look 'good' and be of God, yet it can equally look 'bad' and be of God.
So, the question becomes - in what choice do you want to experience possible negative circumstances? Additionally, in what state will positive outcomes be most rewarding? When you follow His leading or yours?
I think your decision has just become obvious.
