How are you?
Easy question, no?
Should you answer in faith? This is a question that brings a lot to mind. Should you answer in faith? Or in actuality?
Do you need help living by faith and not guided by emotions? As believers, we are called to live by faith and not our emotions. And yet, so many of us choose to live by something else; our feelings.
Have you ever made a decision because it simply felt right at the time? Have you ever said something because it felt like the perfect moment? I know I have. More times than I’d like to admit.
“Emotions are at the core of our motivation: they are our muses and they are why we continue on with life even in the face of disappointment or disaster. You may know many emotional people, and you may be one yourself. Being emotional is not a bad thing.
The best thing to do when you are feeling like something isn’t right is to check it out. Don’t sit on it, push it down, or try to ignore it; your emotions won’t cooperate. Sometimes the only way out is by getting into the feelings and first looking at how you might be creating them. Combine that with some gentle (not accusatory) questioning of the person or people who you believe may be the cause. Look for truth and be open to see how it’s possible that your feelings may not be accurate. It also can be helpful to get an outside perspective from someone you trust.”
Faith is what we live by. Jesus is still affecting you, when He arose – The Father; our Creator, Source, Reason sent The Holy Spirit.
And we pray:
LORD, You know the words in my heart before they are at my lips.
LORD renew me each day
Father, renew me each day, Amen
We pray in Jesus’ name, Amen.
