Day 70: Follow Your Heart...

Yesterday, I did something kinda stupid. I signed a paper for something to go into voting on, that I normally wouldn't have, because at the time it sounded pretty good. The people were nice and explained it in a way that well sounded like a good thing. When I came home and studied into it I found out it would be something I would be more against, then for. This wasn't something final, so I can take it back, if it makes it in. The lesson in it for me was just say no until you know the full picture.

At times Satan temps us into thinking his ways are good. In the back of your mind something fires in us to not follow this urge of wonder, yet at times we ignore it and follow that urge that always leads us to harm. We become stupid.

I'm not saying what I signed was evil, far from it, just stupid. What I'm saying is Satan makes his ways look good and we humans fall to it at times. This goes for little things and big things.

I listened to my mind, not my heart which usually leads me to the right path.

Lean on, trust in, and be confident in the Lord with all your heart and mind and do not rely on your own insight or understanding. In all your ways know, recognize, and acknowledge Him, and He will direct and make straight and plain your paths.
 ~Proverbs 3:5-6

I hope my post for today made some kind of sense for you and wasn't too much of a ramble :-)


  1. I haven't found it a mind/heart thing (which I know is a popular viewpoint), but rather a new nature/old nature thing.

    Both the mind and heart of the old nature can't be trusted, but the mind and heart of the new nature can be, because they are one with God. Human emotions and thoughts are lies, but the Divine emotions and thoughts God gives us to be our own are true.

    See also Proverbs 28:26. :)

  2. I always enjoy your thoughtful comments Philip :-) Thank you for sharing... beautifully said.

    Oh and that's a good verse.
