All Sorts of Trouble

That is most interesting, because I generally find that staying true to my heart is a really, really, really bad idea. Gets me into all sorts of trouble. And of course, there’s that pesky little verse in Jeremiah 17: “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?”

But then, I guess “your best life now” doesn’t really allow for that sort of thing.

To be perfectly honest, I wouldn’t follow my heart to the grocery store, much less down the path of life. So what say we stick with the Psalmist?

Thou through thy commandments hast made me wiser than mine enemies: for they are ever with me. I have more understanding than all my teachers: for thy testimonies are my meditation. I understand more than the ancients, because I keep thy precepts. I have refrained my feet from every evil way, that I might keep thy word. I have not departed from thy judgments: for thou hast taught me. How sweet are thy words unto my taste! yea, sweeter than honey to my mouth! Through thy precepts I get understanding: therefore I hate every false way. Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path. (Psa. 119:98-105)

Pardon me. That’s Scripture, Mr. Osteen. It momentarily escaped me that you seldom have use for that.
