I haven’t taken an opportunity to share my heart with you recently… I have shared a lot about my growth and understanding spiritually, the passion that I have to influence broken hearted young people, and specific situations which have wrecked a particular wall I had built up, but today I offer a piece of my beating heart.
Andrew Shearman [the founder of G42] speaks a lot about operating from a red hot heart and an ice cold brain, If I am being honest, it took me a couple months to truly grasp what that meant. Now that I have an understanding, I realize that I operate out of extremes from either side. In trying to reconcile these extremes, I will share w/ you something I wrote in my journal today:
RED HOT HEART – ICE COLD BRAIN
PASSION – LOGIC
SPONTANEITY – STRATEGY
ACTION – ANALYSIS
Around these big, bold, scratchy words in my journal, I wrote this: Jesus, You have given me two very dynamic extremes in these areas. I am dangerously passionate, but I am also deathly analytical and I beg You for a revelation of how to balance these two attributes. I don’t want to lose either, but I want to figure out how to make them mutually beneficial to one another, which would be glorifying to You and bring freedom to me!
