what's in your heart? (pt. 2)

The biggest thing in my heart right now: I want a mind of my own. Sounds crazy, but it's true. I don't want to rely on anyone else's opinion but God's. I'm tired of my ship being tossed around the unsettled waters of indecision and doubt. If I could get that under control, I think I could move forward to bigger and better dreams.

Is this really a question of what? Or is it more appropriate to ask, "Where is your Heart?"

It is much easier to answer. Where a man's treasure is, there will his heart be also. Easy to answer but not always easy to deal with. It is tough to be true to yourself, God and man.

Maybe these questions are too closely related.

Stepping out to do what is right instead of what is easy, what a concept.

Tony, please read this post.
I really want to know what you think.

I thought you were going to tell me . . . . . . . ahhh yes, this is really the "hard" question.

When I asked myself that question...I quit my job!

Simone said...

I asked myself that question, me and husband, we followed our hearts,we got kicked of theological college! It always comes at a price, right?

Tony Myles said...

Ah! Good insight there... which raises the question - how often can we tell the difference between following a deep emotion and following the part of our hearts that longs to honor God? And is there ever a difference?

I apologize for not spending the time to answer the question you just posted about deep emotion but i do want to shortly say to stephanie's first comment, maybe that is where most are at in relation to the dream they are trying to get to the pure heart of who they really are. we don't want to only be products of circumstance. we want to be who we were created to be. so what now? getting down to the purity of who we are... natural passions...spiritual gifts...what we hate... mix that with listening and we start to uncover the dream... i guess :)
