The heart truly is a compass. Follow it and it'll lead you to happiness and to where you belong - HOME. Choose not to follow it, to do things your own way, and you will find yourself lost and alone.
Want to know why I believe this is? Because I believe what the Word says that God created us in His image. Because our heart is God's heart, our "compass" is always pointing us to our eternal home and down a path that will lead us there. Any other path will make us lost, confused, and miserable. That's just my simple-minded way of looking at things.
I'm gonna leave you with the lyrics to a song that I love by Lady Antebellum and a promise that next time, I'm going to post my simple-minded way of looking at something else I love - dancing. In the meantime, friends, follow your compass. :o)
