Men enjoy telling me, I think too much. When something is on my mind, it typically comes from my heart because that is where my spirit dwells. A man should be worried if I wasn’t thinking a lot. Then my heart would not be full.
God placed a man in my life that is borderline genius. He used such big words when he texted me, that I had to look them up to communicate. That was an interesting time in my life. My daughter thought that was too much work, but I wanted to know every word.
I learned a lot from that man and his words. You won’t see me use big words in my writing, because I want it to be an easy read. If you had to stop and look up words, this wouldn’t be as enjoyable. I want to reach everybody and teach from the heart, not mind.
The irony of this is, that man found my mind very interesting. I was terrified to talk with him in fear of looking stupid, but he always wanted to know how I think. I could never explain it to him, but I hope that today, that man is led more by his heart than his mind.
Mama always said, “Go with your gut.” If I don’t have peace about something, I have learned not to do it. I can plan my day, but if I get to something on my list and lose my peace, I pause and pray. God has saved me many a time by taking away my peace right before I walked out the door.
Follow your heart but take your brain with you. My heart feeds my mind, so whatever is on my heart will be on my mind. I can have thoughts that are not led by my spirit, and that should make you worry. Instead of wondering what I have on my mind, look inside my heart. That is where every thought starts and where everyone should want to be.
