This is what a friend said to me just recently, when we took a good long walk in the beautiful evening sun and it is so true for me and I am so grateful for the Lord’s faithfulness in this with me.
She said, “The Lord ALWAYS goes before you in your emotions.” This is the truth, I tell you what! I begin to get this stirring in me that becomes almost out of control, like I can’t breath, like I can’t sleep, like I am on the verge of tears or right out a blubbering mess. This must be where the Holy Spirit has to take me to prepare my heart for either what is just ahead, or to teach me something that is usually life changing, or it’s like a burden that I may not even know what for, so that I am in this vulnerable spot to get me to my knees.
Either way, the Lord goes before me in my emotions.
This precious friend and I were laughing at how MOST of the time….I don’t even recognize it for what it is until I have a break thru. She, several times, in my most heightened state of distress reminds me, “the Holy Spirit is bringing those tears, get busy with the Lord.” Never once has He ever kept me hangin’ in this state without revealing some revelations for the tears. Thank you Lord for this!
Thank you also to a friend such as this. For, I told her, I NEED MEDS, and instead reminded me of the Lord and how He works in me to work something out in me.
