How does one stay wise in protecting their heart while still honoring who they are in life? To find the balance of living outrageously open yet wise fully so?
Love opens, expands while fear closes, withdraws. Wisdom on the other hand observes and sees with conviction.
For as long as I know, I've worn my heart on my sleeve. Naturally, opening my heart up despite the uber amounts of reasons I could've been fearful and shut down. I was a guardian over other hearts and never my own. I have loved purely and naturally my entire life. I am deeply sensitive, intuitive, empathetic, and spiritual.
I never even thought about what it means to guard my very own heart. I actually made it in a author and childhood friend's book described as "she had the biggest most open heart I'd ever seen, she welcomed me in her circle, when no one else would."
For all this questioning I've received a soothing answer. The answer came to me in prayer via a psalm passage that flashed before my mind and heart.
"Trust in the Lord with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;
in all your ways acknowledge him,
and he will make your paths straight." Psalm 3:5-6
Lean not on your own understanding! So in consideration to what I've learned. Having earthly understanding vs Christ consciousness understanding are two entirely opposing views and at the crux of the human condition.
Allowing my heart to align with God and love openly is wise. Guarding my heart as a child of God is wise too. It's both.
I don't have to lean on my own understanding for these initial questions above to be answered by imperfectly perfect Rebecca. How we forget as humans! I trust with all my heart that God is leading me to what is necessary in his perfect time for me to see. In this way, I remain fully open hearted and loving as I was created to be. Brave heart! This is the beginning of a wiser women living in Love and Wisdom, God revealing the righteous path. A protection in adjusting thy ways and footing as called.
