Help me to Get Back in the Field

The title implies the need to be back on a lost connection. Words are there but the thoughts are mixed up. It isn’t the confusion that makes it more complicated. It was the time taken to produce a piece. The strength was consumed by the most important things, ignoring the least without weighing how much happiness it could bring.

Help me to restore the desire in pondering things and moments beyond what the world could see. Help me to get back in the field of writing. Help me to make the most out of the little time remaining to express a portion of life. Help me to maximize the power of turning thoughts into words. Help me, O God, to have wisdom, strength and courage to continue what You calls me to do.

As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace.

-1 Peter 4: 10 ESV

Feelings are Deceitful*

Life is no fun when we let our feelings run the show.  Feelings change from day to day, hour to hour, even moment to moment.  They often lie to us.  In short, we cannot trust our feelings.  But we can choose, as Christ followers, to ignore false emotions and live by truth and wisdom.

Let me give you some examples.  Perhaps you have found yourself in a crowd of people and felt as though everyone was talking about you.  That doesn’t mean they were.  Maybe you feel that nobody understands you, but that doesn’t mean they don’t.  You may feel misunderstood, unappreciated or even mistreated, but that doesn’t mean you are.  These are only feelings.  We need to be mature, disciplined, Holy Spirit-controlled people, determined to walk in the Spirit.  It takes a constant act of the will to choose to do things God’s way rather than our way.  Even though we may feel occasionally bombarded by negative emotions, we cannot allow those feelings to control and spoil life.  Instead, we can choose to follow the truth-godly wisdom, knowledge and understanding.

 

Pray: God, my feelings often go against Your wisdom and try to deceive me, but I won’t let them run my life.  Guide me with Your truth so that I can stay connected to You, and not be run by my constantly changing emotions.
