When the Heart and Mind Lie to Each Other!
Your brain should be for logical thinking and reasoning things out... There are days I wonder about this when my thinking is all jumbled up or chaos abounds in there... Or maybe when there is nothing there at all.. What then... Are you brainless or what? I would think that the brain would act like the parent or guardian of the heart... It has the ability to tell you yes or no... You brain should be able to lead you in the right direction and point out the pros and con's of what is about to happen... Maybe I am wrong, not sure...
The mind is where I wage most of my battles in life. It’s with my mind, that my distrust and fears come alive and are out of control... When things aren't working out as I think they should, I will think and ponder on them till I have exhausted all thoughts...
My heart knows what the it wants, a lot of times I just want to turn my mind off and see what would happen. Following the heart can be a bit tricky and get you in alot of trouble... There are so many days that I want to believe the best about someone and then it backfires... One of the traits of a Christian is the desire to help others. But when should we not be helping... I have always thought that we should forgive 70 times 7, we are to turn the other cheek, give our cloak if someone asks... So when you help others out of a real need on their part, when is a good time to say no... Or should the word no even be used?
I’ve always lived life by my heart. I’ve struggled with that somewhat because when it comes to the heart, that means it comes to feelings... And I’ve learned over time, that it is not easy to be a person that follows the heart, because you can get hurt easily... I wonder if it is more important to follow your heart since when I accepted Christ into my heart, it was more of a heart and soul thing than I thinking thing... Maybe that is just too simple...
We are told somewhere in the Bible to not let our heart deceive us. So what does that really mean? Does that mean that our hearts aren't what leads us and that we should be using our minds more? If I relied on my mind to lead me lately, I think I would be in a worse world of hurt... So which is right?
