My gut is never wrong. Despite knowing this, I continue to make decisions that contradict my gut instinct. Why is that? I have no idea.
What I do know is that it needs to stop immediately.
Trust in any relationship takes time to develop. The relationship that we have with “self” is an established one, so the trust should be there. Right? When we ignore our gut instincts, we’re essentially not trusting and believing what we already know to be true. This does not sound like faith. It sounds a lot like fear.
It may be difficult to act on what we know to be true. It may seem counterintuitive. It also may have been explained to us that acting on our feelings is a “no-no.” Well, never say never. When God places a thought or idea or feeling in you, it must be acknowledged. Acknowledging your feelings by praying about them or writing about them are both appropriate actions. Doing nothing is neither appropriate nor healthy.
Have faith that all is well. Also, have faith when things don’t feel like they are well. How? Simply start by doing one thing– Just one. This will help. I’m sure of it.
