The amazing thing about having a personal relationship with MY LORD & SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST—is that he guards your heart even when you carelessly give it to the wrong people. One of my absolute favorite scriptures in the Bible is PROVERBS 4:23 “GUARD YOUR HEART ABOVE ALL ELSE, FOR IT DETERMINES THE COURSE OF YOUR LIFE”.
I don’t think we truly realize the importance of what this scripture is truly warning us about. Out of our heart flows the issues of life. Relationships with people can either add to our issues of life in a good or bad way. Its truly up to us. The reason I say that is because believe it or not, The Lord gives us warning signs about people— it’s up to us to listen or not.
I’m not proud that I have ignored his warning signs for my own selfish reasons—when all he was doing is being an amazing father and warning me of what I was getting myself into. I guess the hard part is that we long for relationships so much that sometimes our vision is clouded and our discernment is off. But the scary part is that, we let our guard down for things that we want! Even if it goes against what we stand for sometimes! It’s nothing to be proud about-but it’s a sad reality!
Fast forward- when we bump our heads… somehow we get angry with The Lord because he didn’t bless what we wanted. Yes- it’s true, he promised to give us the desires of our heart … but he wouldn’t dare trade his WILL for ours!! That’s where we have to gather ourself and realize that he call the shots, not us! I live my life in repentance daily, for all things that I chose over his WILL for my life! However, I am grateful that he still loves me no matter what! He still cares for me in spite of! There’s nothing that you and I can do to make him stop loving us—-NOTHING‼️‼️
That knowledge alone gives me comfort and peace in my journey throughout life! Just to know that HE GOT ME! With that being said, I accomplished the painful but necessary task of CUTTING THE CORD-with some people in my life that The Lord revealed to me that I had to let go! Letting go is never easy, but I get even more comfort in knowing that I am not allowing people in my life that don’t belong! Save yourself the heartache and extra pain of allowing people to stay in your life past their expiration date! Anything left in your life past the expiration date starts to spoil your life.
Bonds created, history made, memories created—it all can cause you to second guess the confirmations that The LORD gave you and keep people close. THATS A DANGEROUS MISTAKE‼️ Think of it this way—would we rather The Lord let us roam through life WITHOUT warning signs and hints about what isn’t good to us and for us!?! Or would we rather him give us warning signs and let us know when we are dealing with people who we are not supposed to‼️‼️
I don’t know about you, but I am grateful that The Lord have been answering my prayers🙏🏽 I won’t lie and say that what he show me is easy to digest-sometimes it hurts because once again—Bonds creates, history made, memories created🙏🏽 However-although it hurts, I find comfort in the fact that I KNOW NOW🙌🏽
Prayer:: LORD-GRANT US THE PEACE TO ACCEPT THE THINGS WE CANNOT CHANGE, THE COURAGE TO CHANGE THE THINGS WE CAN & THE WISDOM TO KNOW THE DIFFERENCE‼️ HELP US SUBDUE OUR FLESH WHEN WE WANT TO GET IN OUR OWN WAY‼️ CONTINUE TO GIVE US THE SIGNS & SIGNALS ABOUT THOSE WHO WE MAY BE HOLDING ONTO THAT ARE NO GOOD TO US & FOR US‼️ NO MATTER HOW WE MAY FEEL OR REACT—NEVER STOP REVEALING YOURSELF TO US—IN JESUS NAME- AMEN❤️❤️
