Walk with Love
We need to accept direction from an internal GPS (God's Powerful Spirit). We need to be open to the words of our friends and family, but ultimately we have to follow our own heart. There is a gut instinct, often called the small, still voice of the Holy Spirit that guides us through any challenges that come our way. Isaiah 30:21 says, "And you turn to the right or when you turn to the left, your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, 'This is the way; walk in it.'"
Sometimes we try to determine what is right and what is wrong. It is hard to know that. I have found that the most reliable guide to knowing is to ask myself, "What would love do?" That is where wisdom is. When we do the most loving thing possible, we will always make the right decision. We shouldn't be afraid to follow our own wisdom. We all have a direct line to God. If other people try to dissuade us from our goals, we need to remember that we only need to please God, not anyone else. In Galatians 1:10 Paul says, "I'm not trying to win the approval of people, but of God."
Walk with love today. Let God guide you safely like a lighthouse guides ships safely to shore. Trust your wisdom.
Light and Love,
