Feelings are an awesome gift from God. They can help in so many ways. They are also notoriously unreliable.
You simply can’t let feelings drive your life. If you do, you’ll end up randomly bumping around like a robotic vacuum cleaner. You’ll jump from thing to thing to thing and give up whenever you face the tiniest bit of resistance.
To have a purposeful fulfilling life – the kind of life for which you deeply long – you must stop consulting your feelings about every little thing and instead consult God and His Word. Stop asking yourself how you feel about things and start asking God what He thinks about things.
As you seek God, He will lead you…and reveal to you a path that is already blessed by Him. And, as you travel that path, you will find that your feelings will start to follow too. You won’t always “feel it” but your feelings will cooperate more and more with your divine path and purpose.
It’s not about how you feel. It’s about what God wants.
