Saturdays Love Dare


One of the most important
things you should learn on
your Love Dare walk is that
you should not just follow
your heart..
You should lead it...
You dont let your feelings
and emotions do the
driving. You put them
in the back seat and tell
them where you are going..
And where you will
NOT GO !!.

Karen,
I love this post!!! Last October my church offered the movie, "Fireproof" to my police wives association in my area. I hosted and spoke at this event. The part that struck me to the core was when I realized how our hearts can deceive us, and how we allow our emotions to run out of control. What a great reminder . . . Thank you my friend in Christ for sharing this post today.
Blessings,
Bren

Hi Karen,
It's so nice to meet you! How funny that you live in FL. not too far fromk my Mom and that you spoke of WV, the state I was born in. We have some things in common.
I read your profile and am so happy you put your family back together. God is in the business of healing, even marriages.
We've been married 40 yrs. and have two married daughters.
Our son-in-law is a pastor in CA. Hard to be so far from them and two grandchildren.
How far are you from Ocala, FL?
Thanks for taking time to visit.

I love this....a truth much ignored or not accepted by the mainstream. Coming from a long line of women ruled by emotion and feeling, I'm determined NOT to follow that destructive path! We may not always succeed in every circumstance, but our Lord knows the desires of our hearts....and He is faithful to pull sincere & willing hearts back into His will (hopefully before we've done too much damage)!
Totally unrelated....I'm a Floridian, too!

Karen, just what I needed today, as hard as it is for me to admit it my emotions today have been in the driver's seat, Thanks for steering, me in the right direction.
