Hello old friends, new followers and fellow bloggers-
It’s been a while. To say that I’ve been extremely busy would be an understatement. The truth of the situation is I am working two different jobs to make some enough income to move for law school. I feel like the more I work, the less trouble I get into and therefore my constant exhaustion is for my good and not detriment…. 😬. Not really sure if anyone else would agree with that logic, but that is the truth concerning why it seems like I don’t blog as much as I used to.
Anyways…there was something that just dropped into my heart this morning in regards to relationships. I think that for many of us, relationships have been a roller coaster ride of emotions dipped in confusion. One day we are extremely happy and content and the next we are deeply unsatisfied for whatever the reason. We get into these relationships with this sense of doubt, waiting for things to not to work out so we can begin the process with someone else. I’ve lived my life like this…in constant confusion and anxiety regarding those who I have been involved romantically with.
So this morning, the Holy Spirit began to speak to me about one’s inner witness. That voice within ourselves that tells us when things are right and when things are wrong. We like to call this voice our conscience but in Christ, this voice of reason and truth is truly the Holy Spirit leading and guiding us into life. He warns of bad decisions and urges us to take amazing opportunities for the glory of the Father. If we listen hard enough, we can hear him saying when things are right and when they are wrong-when the relationship is right and when it’s wrong. I think the problem comes when we override Him and the red flags He shows us because we desire to fill this void of loneliness that is within. SOOOOO… we allow our own insecurities and weaknesses to dictate how great a relationship is for us, rather than trusting the inner workings of the Holy Spirit and His ability to lead us into truth– it’s the nature of humanity and our constant belief that we can make decisions for ourselves separated from that inner witness.
This is why i speak to so many people who say “If only I listened to by gut…” “If only I acknowledged those signs that I saw in that individual…” “If only…” The thing about hindsight is that it’s 20/20 and that’s when we truly see life what it was and not for what we wanted it to be. I learned through harsh breakups and broken hearts to follow the leadership of the Holy Spirit and to listen to His voice, confirming this inner witness that is within.
When you meet the person you should be in covenant with, you will just know. You will…. People today don’t want to believe in love at first sight any more or that your heart and mind will come into agreement concerning love, but it will and this agreement that happens between these two realms of ourselves will confirm that inner witness within. I’ve experienced that agreement and it’s life changing, to be in a place where there is no doubt that you and this person is just meant to be in this very moment- it’s liberating….
So today, I encourage you to listen to the Holy Spirit. When He shows you that things aren’t right about your relationships, pay attention and act accordingly. Don’t stay stuck in relationships because of what you want your relationship to be rather than what truly is. Be open to the truth and heed to that inner witness within you. Listen to Him.
When you meet the “one” for you, you’ll just know!
Until next time,
