*And the award for obvious statement of the year goes to… BILLY!*
I know this about myself. One thing I like about life is that all these little “quirks”, and by quirks I mean faults, are eventually confronted with “growing up”. What I mean is that life eventually tells you to nut up or shut up. You either grow or die. At some point staying who you’ve always been becomes the death of you.
When I think about my “quirks”, I see that one of these little “quirks” can mess things up for me If I allow it. I easily get into my emotions. I have grown much in this area over the years and for this I am thankful. But there is much ground still to be covered. Ahh… sanctification. Am I right?!
Getting into one’s emotions too quickly is never good. It’s impossible to be level-headed when emotions are at the helm. What we feel and what is true is not always connected. What matters more is the truth. As C.S. Lewis once said in his book “A Grief Observed”:
“Feelings, feelings, and feelings. Let me try thinking instead.”
I need to nut up and grow past my emotions. At all times I need to focus on what is true over and above all other things.
