FLEETING EMOTIONS

FLEETING EMOTIONS Making decisions by sight We let our emotions be our guide Doing what we want to do—as pride and feelings rule Taking common-sense approaches, evaluating risks – our pros and cons Seeking supernatural guidance—stars, horoscopes, and best selling self-help books God created our emotions, intending them to be fulfilled but not to rule Creating roller-coaster rides with every whim and trend His prescription for our wisdom—is in His to trust We become fulfilled as He fills us Sight is limited—Faith is not Walk by Faith, not sight Faith is the bird that sings, while yet in the dark with trusting wings

    walk by faith, not by sight, not what's right, and not by light.

    Kim you're so incredibly wise! Your mind is on the right track of things and it's plain as day when I read your poetry. It's very easy to let Emotions take the wheel... it takes a goodly amount of courage to let God take the wheel instead (not to quote the country song).
