Can I get an AMEN from the crowd!? This very statement resonates deep into my heart with great conviction.
For a woman who struggles with actions sprinting after her feelings, this quote speaks so much truth to me this morning. It is such a great reminder to keep on keeping on doing what is right!
We all struggle with something raging inside of our souls. The battle within our selves are REAL. This War inside of us is called good and evil, right and wrong.
This quote reminds me of the importance of TRUTH and how it will help me win ANY BATTLE I may have within my soul!
My battles could be anything from fighting negative body image, getting along with others, laziness, discontentment, the list goes on…
There will always be what feels right and what actually is right.
There will always be what feels wrong that may actually be right. (Don’t think this is possible? Then go bless some one who despises you!)
When your battle is based on what you know and what you feel, you should always trust what you know to be TRUE! Always follow TRUTH!
Feelings are fickle, they lie, they can be a false sense of security, they can play on your emotions, they can be lifted up by others, or shut down and become numb. They put too much dependence on other people’s actions or words, and your own circumstances. Never trust your feelings, always trust the TRUTH!
What is TRUTH?
JESUS answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. John 14:6
And you will know the Truth, and it will set you free. John 8:32
What happens when you practice Truth?
But he who practices truth (Who does what is right) comes out into the Light; so that his works may be plainly shown to be what they are-wrought with God (Divinely prompted, done with God’s help, in dependence upon Him). John 3:21
And let us not lose heart and grow weary and faint in acting nobly and doing right, for in due time and at the appointed season we shall reap, if we do not loosen and relax our courage and faint. Galatians 6:9
Peace and Mercy be upon all who walk by this rule….Galatians 6:16
So no matter WHAT may come today, or this week, remember the battle will be between what you know is right and what feels right. How will you react to life in the present? Will you pursue/chase after peace and mercy by following truth, or will you trip yourself up on your feelings and land into a pit of self pity?
It all lies in your hands my friend!
