Over the past week or so, I’ve been pressured from various directions to compromise a decision I made, made based on strong leading from my gut. In fact, my gut told me in the strongest possible terms I am obliged to obey it under these circumstances for my own and my family’s personal safety. No contest. But the pressure from the other to disobey my inner compass, and in the name of God and Jesus and love, no less, has been constant and exhausting.
But I know the creator who knows me knows I’m best going only where I’m sent, particularly when there is danger, or my own or another’s well-being at stake. No one has the right to demand you disobey your gut instinct. Listen to your gut. It’s a good gut.
