Gold to Treasure
Proverbs tells us that in abundance of counselors there is safety (Prov. 11:14). I am thankful for the variety that God has provided me - family, friends, pastoral, and an unbiased professional.
Two of my God-given family additions were speaking Truth with me recently and gave a treasure too good not to share:
"I would never tell you to follow your heart (Jer. 17:9), but follow the heart of the Lord and he will direct your path."
Seek the Lord, ask for affirmation with various counselors that next steps are truly from Him, and then walk in trustful confidence.
"Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not rely on your own understanding; in all your ways know him, and he will make your paths straight. Don’t be wise in your own eyes; fear the Lord and turn away from evil."
