The Face of Today’s Emotions
Managing emotions is a fact of life. Due to the fact that as long as we live, we will experience a number of emotional feelings and reactions. What we do with those emotions is where the secret to living a fulfilling live lies.
However, not everyone is the same and because of that, we have different ways of dealing with extreme emotions that leave us puzzled as to what to do. The test is do we do like everyone does and go to a counselor? Even tougher, do we attempt to deal with these emotions alone? Emotions can be tricky if you let them. In fact, they could be our greatest enemy. Satan uses our emotions against us to keep us from walking in the Spirit.
It’s extremely important to realize that the Lord our God who resides within everyone of us, is mighty. HIS might within us enables us to overpower and help with our emotions. God is our answer but what or how do we interact with God to get our answer or answer to our everyday emotional roller coaster?
Managing Your Emotions Starting with Your Spirit
Spiritual stability and emotional maturity don’t come naturally. It’s essential to desire it with your heart and stay determined to get it. Once you make emotional stability a priority, God is much more than prepared to assist you in managing your emotions.
In fact, God promises that we will be stable IN HIM. Jesus also said that we can have whatever we believe in our hearts. When the word says heart it is really saying in our spirit. One of the questions that I always had growing up was how do I know that I believe it in my “heart”?
The easiest and most telling is to look at how you respond when you are in a crisis. What comes out of your mouth when you are angry or someone pushes your “button”. (button being that place you know you are weak and need to work on being a better person)
Encouragement For A Stabilized Emotional Day
I encourage you to pursue God TODAY. He will help in every way possible with managing your emotions. The secret is to let go and let God! I know you may have already heard that but it’s true.After all, dealing with your emotions is key to a happy and fulfilling life. So, enjoy emotional stability and a joyful, victorious life!
If I’m being transparent, I know that we are all in need of some sort of healing. Whether it be physical, mental, or emotional. So I know that because of this, we have a friend in Jesus who let us know that his yoke is easy and burden is light. We are to come to him if we are feeling weary and He will give us rest.
Rest is great when you are at that tipping point. We need to know when to blow that whistle saying “HEY I NEED REST!” We all need it so don’t torcher yourself. Speak out words of life to yourself. If you don’t have any cheerleaders, start with being your own cheerleader. You deserve it. Words of affirmation everyday, multiple times per day. That’s where you start
In Proverbs, a book of wisdom, it says to pay attention to God’s words.
Battle Of The Mind
If you’ve been struggling with emotional wellbeing, you may already know that most of that comes from the mind. We either beat ourselves up
Remember, managing your emotions is a BIG first step in receiving you joy, blessing, healing, and YOUR VICTORY!
