Psalm 3:3 (ESV)
3 But you, O Lord, are a shield about me,
my glory, and the lifter of my head.
*Sometimes we want things so badly that we miss the warning signs. However, God amazingly keeps us, and lifts our head out of the fog of our desires to show us the truth. The way He sweetly informs us while giving us a choice is beyond amazing. Even when we make the wrong choices, we still have so many opportunities to remove ourselves from the temptation or the issue. There is always a way out, and even more so, there is protection from God if we are willing to receive it. Therefore, don't beat yourself up over a mistake. (I often do that, especially when it comes to the wrong relationship.) Just become more aware in Christ, and continue to build yourself up in Him to avoid unnecessary stress and hurt. Even when we make mistakes, there is a lesson to be learned and the positivity behind the fact that you've been freed!
