He Will Lead You… But Will You Follow Him?
I recently had to check my sense of direction this past week, and what I’ve come to learn is even when God is flowing through me, and covering every aspect of truth concerning the inter works of my healing God posed a question to me. Will you still follow me?
Before I handed over my answer to Him I was thinking about where I am now, and how bummed out was feeling with everything that is privately going on in my life. I felt closed off from a lot of people in my life, and I needed human contact. I even thought for a second of going back to that old thang that broke my heart, and then God reminded me of what happened in that relationship, and why it ended.
Being saved and single is a struggle in itself, and often it’s even easier said than done not to allow your mind to drift back into the thoughts of what was, and what isn’t anymore. I really had to do some soul searching, and I really had to remember the stages of emotional abuse that took place in that last relationship that I was in.
I literally had to shake myself loose from even thinking of the I miss him routine. You know the stages of physical emotions that the heart goes through but the mind taps you on the shoulder while gracefully reminding you of your worth, and your purpose which is not determined by a feeling but an action. A few days went by and the time drew near for me to give God my answer which in my mind had never drifted in another area but I had to reassure it to myself, and also to Him. I sat, and talk to God, and said I will follow you regardless of what is happening around me I trust you.
So many things can happen during your stages of healing and during the time where God has you in your alone time before him, and away from the outside world. It can be tricky at times to determine your feelings vs your stages of loneliness, and it’s ok to feel that way as long as you are not acting on those emotions.
My advice is to talk about all things over with God, and he will guide you on how you should settle your heart issues with the things that linger in the midst of those unresolved issues hiding in those matters of having no closure in certain relationships in your life.
