Everything in the universe MOVES.
E-motions MOVE you to take action.
Emotions are what we feel.
As humans, we are made up of body, soul, and spirit. We were made to feel. Our feelings are a constant barometer of the condition of our hearts. They can be both positive or negative.
We all love the positive emotions.
The sweet ones. ♡ Love and joy and peace.
But not so much, the negative ones. Pain and sadness and fear. But, those feelings are there to protect us. They send our brains a message when we are in danger, are being hurt, are being violated in some way, or that our beliefs are being compromised. They also can be sending us a message that we are being led in the wrong direction by our own selfish desires.
We should never be ruled by our emotions, they change all the time and can’t be trusted. We should instead manage them as part of the men and women God created us to be.
Emotions originate in our thoughts. Do your thoughts and emotions ever get the best of you? Do you ever allow stinking thinking to creep in? Do you ever overthink a situation?
God wants our thought life to be pure and edifying. Let’s turn our emotional filters on. Listen to our emotions as a check and balance. But use them to self correct when need be. Then let’s make our emotions sweet.
Love is the sweetest emotion of all. ♡
I want to spend my time in the yellow, yellow-green zone. How about you? 🙂
casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ
2 Corinthians 10:5
Love and laughter,
