A steady heart keeps on going…
The more I learn to trust in the leading of the spirit and His guide to my steps my heart can become steady.
When I don’t trust I am full of worry, doubt, fear, anxiety so much so that my heart cam race, cause panic attacks, anxiety attacks, and deep crippling fear to take me over.
Thats not a fun feeling when this times have come upon me I must say. But, but with thr help of the Lord and the God in my leadership they have been teaching me layer by layer to gain control over those things.
Am I perfected in it?
Its a continual process as Pastor Juanita Gibbs tells me that will occur at each level of faith in the journey. There will be times that things deep within will rise up to show itself and I will need those calming tools to deal with it and replace it.
They have prepared a net for my steps; My soul is bowed down; They dug a pit before me; They themselves have fallen into the midst of it. Selah. My heart is steadfast, O God, my heart is steadfast; I will sing, yes, I will sing praises! Awake, my glory! Awake, harp and lyre! I will awaken the dawn. I will give thanks to You, O Lord, among the peoples; I will sing praises to You among the nations. For Your lovingkindness is great to the heavens And Your truth to the clouds. Be exalted above the heavens, O God; Let Your glory be above all the earth.
Psalms 57:6-11 NASB
I want the Lord to lead me along in this life and guide my steps by the leading of the Holy Spirit. This is a sure footing with God that I must put full and complete trust in. I know I say that alot in my posts as I am still journeying through my trust issues. But it is getting better slowly.
The more I trust the steadier my heart becomes. The more it does so my praise, thanksgiving and worship can increase and believe me I desleratly want that. God has and is good to me and I give Glory and Honor to all He has done for me in my life especially in the last few months and in my entire life. God has kept me and I praise him for that.
My soul will learn as I keep using the tools given to me to bow to the lead of the spirit. This soul (mind,will and emotions) has a mind of its own at times. It may sound a little cliche but the soul wants its leading role in my life and that is not how our lifes werr originally built to be.
We were built to be spiritual lead. He place the first man in the garden and he was spiritually lead by God when they talked in the cool of the day. Its when satan came in form of a serpent and brought doubt in that spiritual leading of man kind died when the tree was partaken of.
To get that back God sent His son Jesus to restore us to what once was originally destined for his creation. A life once resembling that of when He placed man in the garden and spent time with him and spoke to him and lead him and guided him.
Adam had no worries until that spiritual death came. He worried about his nakedness and hid. I hide in my worries also like its shameful to be so consumed, when God wants us to bring them to him, cast our cares and steady our hearts once more.
