Ever have one of those MOMENTS when you get hit up side the head with a little bitty PEBBLE but you find yourself ignoring it? You know what I'm talking about, right? That feeling you get in the pit of your stomach that says "STOP! STOP RIGHT NOW! You're about to get involved in something (or with someone) that isn't good!"
You decide to ignore that God anointed feeling and then,just when you THINK you are safe and all is well, you get a little bit bigger ROCK slamming right into your forehead! AGAIN it says "You've been WARNED! STOP! You're about to make a biggggg mistake!" And even though you sorta question just WHAT you are about to do, you start dismissing that inner voice again... You may even say "OUCH" out loud and yet you still aren't convinced anything is amiss?
Now...if that isn't bad enough, you continue to believe that STILL-SMALL-VOICE is mistaken! Even though you're pinned up against the wall by a humongous BOULDER and you feel pressure all around, you still question the validity of the feelings deep within your soul?
Have you ever ignored your natural wisdom to the point that an entire MOUNTAINSIDE crashed in on you?
Well my friends that's been me. Last summer I was gently WARNED by my own heart to turn away from what I KNEW was not a wise path. But unfortunately I decided to take it anyway. Now...here I am 9 months later wishing I'd paid attention to that first tiny pebble. It would have saved me and my Mr. AGPMan a lot of grief if I'd just trusted my own intuition.
I'm not going to go into what happened to me because at this point it's not critical to my story. God is fair and in the end He is Just.
What IS important is this....That voice of warning was put inside of all of us for a reason. Pay attention to it. Your life will be sooo much sweeter (and a lot less painful) if you do.
Blessings for a sweet "I'M LISTENING TO MY HEART" kind of day...
