Why aren’t you trusting your instinct? You are second guessing your gut, telling your conscience to be quiet, wisdom’s voice is calling and you are ignoring your common sense. Normally you are such an opened-eye individual. What went wrong? Are you through beating yourself up yet? MMMMMMM…I honestly do not know if I am through yet.

How does it happen? The first thing that comes to mind is that maybe it is all timing. I guess one cannot totally blame it on that because then it causes one to abandon the responsibility that they should be taking. However I do know that there are moments in our lives in which we are more susceptible to lay down “that thing” that is trying to tell us that “something” is not right. I am learning that because we do not always listen to “that thing”, we buy the lesson instead of paying attention to be taught the lesson. A lesson has to be understood before it can be learned, and in turn it must be applied to each situation there after.

Please understand I am not saying that I want to play a violin to a whining statement, but I do want to bring attention to the red flags that we see or hear, then ignore. I am urging you to pay attention to what you know is right. Understand that asking questions or to stand your ground can be hard. Nevertheless the loss of your time, money, or love can be even more difficult.

Do not jeopardize your valuables by not paying attention. If it looks like a duck, and quacks like a duck, it’s a duck.

Matthew 6:44-45
A Tree and its Fruit
43″For there is no good tree which produces bad fruit, nor, on the other hand, a bad tree which produces good fruit. 44″For each tree is known by its own fruit. For men do not gather figs from thorns, nor do they pick grapes from a briar bush. 45″The good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth what is good; and the evil man out of the evil treasure brings forth what is evil; for his mouth speaks from that which fills his heart
