Just a thought…
The yearning of my heart can be a deafening noise sometimes. These things can be beneficial, but more commonly, I yearn for things I shouldn’t. I feel this strongly today.
I know popular culture says to follow your heart. May I suggest that this is a horrible idea. This creed was never taught by Jesus, but instead he says, “Let not your hearts be troubled, believe in God and also in Me.” (John 14:1) The heart demands that reality ought to serve my desires. But the heart was not designed to be followed, but it was made to be led. Look to Jesus, so that He may save you from your heart.
“The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately sick; who can understand it?” – Jeremiah 17:9
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.” Proverbs 3: 5-6
“God is the shaper of your heart. God does not display his work in abstract terms. He prefers the concrete, and this means that at the end of your life one of three things will happen to your heart: it will grow hard, it will be broken, or it will be tender. Nobody escapes.”
