The Emotion Motion

I have some precious, beautiful friends who make decisions consistently based on their emotions. What they feel like doing, they do. Generally, they are sensitive, dear souls who wear their hearts on their sleeves and are very intune with the feel of a situation and their own intuition. And that works beautifully sometimes. Other times, they are deceived and respond to the feeling a manipulator presented beautifully or painted smoke and mirrors words. In those cases, acting on emotions is problematic. I can feel like doing something despite if it hurts someone else or not. I can be deceived and make the wrong choice. Intuition is sometimes wrong. And people are more and more selfish and narcissistic in the world so conmen are aplenty. So to not make a wrong decision, perhaps it is a good idea to feel the situation out first and then weigh it against truth- pros and cons lists, Bible study and mentor’s advice- before making a major decision. Emotions stir the passions of the heart and they are as strong as they can be unstable. Our hormones are simply untrustworthy sometimes and we must have a plan prepared so we are not caught in a bad decision. Taming the emotional roller coaster is important in protecting oursleves and those we are responsible for, as well as pleasing God. And having a planned course of action to follow is a great step in the right direction before making a decision. Just a thought. 🙂
