Emotions

Emotions, Emotions, Emotions!

How can they be controlled!?!? What to do?!?!?! How to stay strong and not be offended?!?! 

Remember Life Isn’t Fair! Can you imagine if every day of our lives went perfectly and as we assumed they should go? I don’t know about you but that sounds pretty boring. Even though trials and tribulations arise we need to keep our hearts and minds focused on Christ! Our problems are never bigger than our GOD! When in doubt, sadness, and in confusion praise him in advance. Emotions can fill us all so full sometimes that soon we cannot see past them. Think about the last time you were emotional, How long did it last? Did your behavior based on your emotions appropriately address the situation? If not then you may be in your emotions too much. Remember this:

Psalm 30:5

For his anger lasts only a moment, 
    but his favor lasts a lifetime; 
weeping may stay for the night,
    but rejoicing comes in the morning.

With this being said, although we may have many days of lives that may be filled with short lived sadness it can never compare with all of God’s glory and goodness that he spreads in our lives daily. How often do you think about how blessed you are? The next time you start getting to emotional start thinking of all that you are. Do you have a home, clean water, food to eat, family, a job, a car, healthy, etc? God is faithful and all that he promised he will do! The bible says:

Numbers 23:19

God is not human, that he should lie, 
not a human being, that he should change his mind. 

The next time you get in a situation of discomfort of any type that causes an emotion you’d rather not experience, consider it God’s way of trying to take you to the next level. He’s already working things out behind the scenes for your good! Until next time 🙂
