Take My Hand
.... emotion tries to govern our future,, and it will if we let it.
Whether a Domestic Engineer, ( a.k.a.- mom),, a contractor, day-care provider, journalist, teacher, or whatever may be your calling...
We ALL have emotions.
Life moves so fast, and if we aren't careful, we find our self letting our emotions govern our decisions, our relationships, and our daily outcome.
This is a test I have to try and work through every day.
I know you are not surprised... because you must do the same, right?
It is in the most tempting moments to act on my emotions,, rather than fact, prayer, and steady waiting for the truth to be shown........
That I hear my Lord whisper.. :"Take my Hand."
There have been times that I have ignored this voice of truth.. and reaped sorrowful consequences...
reaped regret and learned many hard lessons.
And, sadly,, will probably find this to be true again...
It is really not an age thing... getting older means getting wiser?
I don't think that this is a truth that can always be stood on...
And I certainly KNOW that I am not any wiser in many areas as well.
The only governing force in my life that spurs growth and understanding is a true submission to my Lord and Savior.
Not man -made wisdom,,,
Nor discussions on what is Right and Wrong...
If any one lacks wisdom, ask it of God..
Here is a verse that we taught our children from the time they could repeat Scripture,, and I am constantly challenged and spurred to remember this:
