Contrary to popular belief, maybe we should NOT always follow our heart. The heart is unreliable and can even be manipulated by others. These unreliable emotions are what leave us exhausted, frustrated, doubtful, hopeless, and lacking focus.
God wants us to be more emotionally attached to him than to any other person (or circumstance), and that is how we can find emotional stability and health. We must be honest with what we feel, challenge it, and change it. We don't have to automatically accept our feelings--good or bad. We can take control of them.
Above all else, guard your heart because out of it flow all the issues of your life. (Prov. 4:23)
Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. (Matt. 11:28)
So who or what am I more emotionally attached to?? Wow...Where do I even begin?
