Emotionally led, Part 1
Changing my ways to be more spiritual minded through the Strength of the Lord, took me to slow down on decision making and choices, even when my emotions were running high. It would feel so right, a good thing to do, but I soon learned how wrong the right thing seemed was. Some of us know the Scripture that says, Proverbs 3:5, "Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding." Being emotionally led was a huge part of me leaning on my own understanding. I had to move past listening to what I thought was right, what my emotions were saying was right, and seek the Lord for what is right. I hear all the time listen to your heart, follow your heart, and I've learn to do the opposite. I learned not to lean on my own understanding, thoughts, yes, even heart and listen to the Voice of the Lord. I've found what seemed right to me, led to a destruction of some sort. Proverbs 19:2 says,...he that hastens with his feet sins. Hurry decisions have led a lot of problems, I didn't have to face or go through, brought a lesson but also with that lesson, there was unnecessary loses too. However, the good thing was learning not to lean on my own understanding.
