When The Heart Rules The Mind

Driving home from the airport about midnight last night, an 80s pop song came on. I don’t know the group or the song, but the title struck me.

“When the Heart Rules the Mind”

We’ve probably all been there.

When we’re adolescent and the hormones are coursing through our systems.

When we’re middle aged and thinking we’ve missed out on life.

When we let politics and news capture our hearts (emotions).

We get caught in a spiral. It starts innocently. Then goes deeper. 

We lose those fruit of the spirit—love, joy, peace. We’re never contented. We are a pain to live with.

That is why so much was written by early Christ followers about the psychology of the spirit. How to overcome the chain of emotions and move ourselves into a spiritual life with God.

Life is so much better there.
