I am not feeling God so I assume that he is far from me. I am not feeling like I am going to have the money to go to school so I begin to doubt and configure a plan to get the money. I am not feeling loved by a friend so I think that maybe it is time to walk away from that friendship. I am not feeling love by my man so I assume God has made me feel like that as a sign that it isn't going to workout. I am not feeling like I am enjoying my Job so I assume it is because it is time from me to quit. Have any of you felt this way and as a result made these assumptions?
If you just shook your head yes... then I am right there with you. But here is what God has been knocking into my head lately. (I say knocking because most of that time that is what it takes to get me to listen). That life is less about how I feel and more about who God is. That the circumstances of my life as a follower of The Lord were not put into motion to make me feel happy but rather to make me HOLY. I am pretty positive that making a choice based on who God is rather than what I feel is a good thing --- considering that my feelings change like the wind, while God's character is UNCHANGING!
So to end this post that probably doesn't make much sense to anyone but me ... I will say this. Life is about choices not feelings. If we are consulting the unchanging God of the UNIVERSE that cares about us on these choices that we are making --- HE will show up and make himself known, even if it doesn't necessarily make us feel good, happy, or comfortable when we are experiencing it.
