You’ve heard it, “listen to God,” right? You’ve probably also heard, “listen to your gut”. These are very common. If you listen closely, you can hear these phrases being used several times a day. You probably say them yourself – I use them daily.
As I was writing this, I started having flash backs to just this past week of my wife saying these things to me. I can’t remember if I listened to her, I was probably going to fast. Sad but true.
Listening to God and your gut isn’t an easy thing to do. It takes time. Especially today with the pace at which our society moves. I’m actually in a plane writing this now (that is packed) and people are actively doing a million things.
At a hundred miles per hour, how can we slow down enough to listen to God and our gut? Can it really be done? The answer is yes. It just takes a serious commitment, disciple, and a daily pursuit to slow down and listen.
Who wants to do that? I mean, we have a hundred and one things to do today. We have kids to run, homework to do, dogs to walk, and houses to clean. When would we have time? We need to be making time. I’m trying to make time daily to slow down and listen to God and my gut.
The fact is, we have to many people moving to fast that we’ve lost the importance of listening to God and our gut? And because of this, we have horrible decisions being made. I am guilty of it and so are you. I am also working on it. Are you?
When you stop and actually tap into listening to God and your gut, you start to make better decisions. Decisions that benefit you, your family, your companies, your team, and your country. You want that right?
Slow down and listen to God and your gut.
