One major thing that I have learned is to lean on Truth (God’s Word) and not on my feelings. I have realized that whenever I lean on my feelings, my reactions are unnecessary and useless.
My emotions change frequently, but the Truth stands firm forever.
I haven’t perfected this yet, but God always corrects me with His Holy Spirit. So even if I wake up feeling antisocial, sad or whatever, I cannot afford to allow my frequent changing feelings to set my day.
This is why it is so important to renew your mind with God’s Word (Romans 12:2). This verse tells us not to conform to the patterns of this world. The world tells us that it is okay to make important decisions based only on our feelings and emotions.
Be very careful when it comes to reacting when you are overwhelmed and engulfed with emotions. It is okay to take a moment, step back and analyze a situation before reacting. God desires for us to make wise choices that pull us closer to His heart.
Father…I know that I have allowed my feelings to lead me down some crazy roads. And to be honest it seems as though these roads are never-ending. Forgive me Father for trying to do life without you. Forgive me Lord for ignoring Your leading. Help me Father to choose you, even when my emotions are flaring, in Jesus Name. Amen
Sincerely, Your Faithful Daughter
