Welcome to AAG. God has brought you to a community that cares and loves in Christ. Thank you for sharing your heart with us.
Indeed we must follow the leading of the Holy Spirit. The desires of our heart must be filtered through the Word of God to test and see if indeed they come from him, but if they do, if they originate from the almighty, then we do well to follow his leading.
2 Timothy 1:6

New American Standard Bible (©1995)
For this reason I remind you to kindle afresh the gift of God which is in you through the laying on of my hands.
King James Bible (Cambridge Ed.)

Holman Christian Standard Bible (©2009)
Therefore, I remind you to keep ablaze the gift of God that is in you through the laying on of my hands.
Welcome to AAG.
I like to think - The mind is the battleground for the heart.
Satan and his world first catch one's (mind's) attention......then try to overcome the person's heart.
It's interesting when Jesus was explaining the greatest commandment, He said, " You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind.........( Matthew 22:37, emphasis added).
It's interesting to notice, that He covered all the major spiritual components of a person's life.
Grace and Peace.
