Today let's explore the fruits of impulsivity, and the ways it can disrupt peace.
It seems those stupid things I say and do on impulse can cause me regret. God shows me over and over in the Bible to be careful not to panic into taking action or saying something, until I carefully think it over in my mind. The fruit I usually grow out of impulsively acting is regret. Sometimes I say something that didn't need to be said; I purchase something that is not needed at all; and the list goes on and on. Sometimes when I act impulsively, I make irreparable mistakes.
The first word of advice I received from other widows was not to make major life changes while I was tempted to be guided by emotions. I'm thankful I had such wise ones to speak into my life. If any of you are emotionally excited (either in the positive or negative), wait until you calm down before taking action. Pray for God's wisdom and understanding.
What are your thoughts on acting impulsively and disruption of your peace of mind?
