"Wait. Wait for God’s timing of healing and restoration. Psalm 30:5 says, 'His anger is but for a moment, and his favor is for a lifetime. Weeping may tarry for the night, but joy comes with the morning.'⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ I don’t think the point of that is about the clock, like sadness at dusk, joy at dawn every day. That’s not the point of that statement. The point is God does not leave his children indefinitely in the depths of sorrow. Joy comes eventually when dawn comes, and it comes in God’s timing. The older you get, the more you know that terrible things don’t have the same horrible gut punch as time goes by.⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ In the moment of loss, when you get that phone call, that utter disappointment, that painful email, a dream is shattered, a massive disappointment, something you thought would never happen — and you feel in those first hours, 'There’s no way I can live with this. There’s no way I can live with this.'⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ God’s timing is very mysterious in its effects because the next day it’s a little different, and the next day it’s a little different. A week later it’s a little different. Everybody moves at different paces, but God uses time and grace to take away the sense of impossibility of life.⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ Psalm 40:1–3 states, 'I waited patiently for the Lord; he inclined to me and heard my cry. He drew me up from the pit of destruction, out of the miry bog, and set my feet upon a rock, making my steps secure. He put a new song in my mouth, a song of praise to our God. Many will see and fear, and put their trust in the Lord.'⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ How long did David wait in the pit? I don’t know, but he waited, he waited. That’s what I’m calling for. I pray that this grieving, unnamed couple will be brought out into the light of hope and joy in due time, not in any glib way that minimizes the loss, but with all the deep work in their hearts that God is doing for their good and, no doubt, through them, for the good of others."⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ Read more at desiringGod.org.

"Our hearts were never designed to be followed, but to be led. Our hearts were never designed to be gods in whom we believe; they were designed to believe in God.⠀ ⠀ If we make our hearts gods and ask them to lead us, they will lead us to narcissistic misery and ultimately damnation. They cannot save us, because what’s wrong with our hearts is the heart of our problem. But if our hearts believe in God, as they are designed to, then God saves us (Hebrews 7:25) and leads our hearts to exceeding joy (Psalm 43:4).⠀ ⠀ Therefore, don’t believe in your heart; direct your heart to believe in God. Don’t follow your heart; follow Jesus. Note that Jesus did not say to his disciples, 'Let not your hearts be troubled, just believe in your hearts.' He said, 'Let not your hearts be troubled. Believe in God; believe also in me' (John 14:1).⠀ ⠀ So, though your heart will try to shepherd you today, do not follow it. It is not a shepherd. It is a pompous sheep that, due to remaining sin, has some wolf-like qualities. Don’t follow it, and be careful even listening to it. Remember, your heart only tells you what you want, not where you should go. So, only listen to it to note what it’s telling you about what you want, and then take your wants, both good and evil, to Jesus as requests and confessions.⠀ ⠀ Jesus is your shepherd (Psalm 23:1; John 10:11). Listen to his voice in his word and follow him (John 10:27). Let him be, in the words of a great hymn, the 'heart of [your] own heart whatever befall.' He is the truth, he is the way, and he will lead you to life (John 14:6)."⠀ ⠀ Read more at desiringGod.org. Link in bio.⠀ ⠀ http://www.desiringgod.org/articles/don-t-follow-your-heart
