Misplaced Emotions

Okay, so sometimes we experience lack or hurt and it causes us to latch on to whatever is remotely good in our eyes. That can be another person, a school of thought, a possession, a job, anything really. & we begin to allow that thing to become an idol. It becomes what we think about when we wake up and when we go to sleep. It is our most passionate endeavor and consequently the thing that stresses us the most. That is not love, that is obsession. Two very different things. Ask God for clarity. To reveal your idols, and give you the fortitude to tear them down. Religion too can be an idol! So be wise, be prudent, be balanced. & know that anything that doesn’t point you directly to the cross, is pointing you to heartache.
