Don’t follow your heart!
As a woman who has a heart condition I can tell you firsthand that emotions, worry, depression, stress… unhealthy relationships… can literally make you sick. Unhealthy relationships, heartache… it can literally break your heart. I’m going to make this next section short, sweet, and simple, and I’m going to write it in all caps because I want you to understand how serious I am about this.
YOUR HEART DOESN’T CONSIDER THE CONSEQUENCES OF PURSUING WHAT IT WANTS. IT’S IRRATIONAL. IT WAVERS. IT’S INCONSISTENT. IT’S BASED ON FEELINGS. THAT CHANGE. AND FLESH. Your heart is selfish. It can be hypocritical. Judgmental. The bearer of ulterior motives. AND LUST. YOUR HEART MUST BE GUARDED AND PROTECTED TO FUNCTION PROPERLY.
Do you hear me? If you don’t want to listen to me, okay fine… listen to God. This is bible. Value your heart! Stop giving it to people as if it’s actually yours to give away. Instead of looking for someone to love with all of your heart, look for someone to love with your soul and spirit. Your soul is how you connect with man; your spirit is how you connect with God.
Find someone that you can trust spiritually. Find someone that takes your emotions, your morals and values, your belief and passions into account. Find someone who will be committed to putting you first, never hurting you intentionally, but always taking your wellbeing into consideration.
