Luke 10:41

But the Lord answered her, “Martha, Martha, you are anxious and troubled about many things.”

Emotions…Everyone has them.  Everyone experiences life differently because of them.  No one is exempt from living with them.  Some people are more expressive with their emotions while others are more prone to hide or cover them up.  Emotions are the expression of effect that outside circumstances have on your life.  Pleasant circumstances and environments result in happiness, calmness, and contentment, while unpleasant circumstances and environments bring about anger, sadness, and grief.  Emotions, depending upon who you ask, may be considered good or bad.  The truth is, however, that life would be extremely bland and dull without them.  Even God Himself has emotions and since you are made in His image you have them too.  The difference in God and most people is that God doesn’t allow His emotions to dictate His actions.  People, on the other hand, well…you know.  Everyone at one time or another has made rash, detrimental, and life altering decisions based on how they felt in the moment.  Crimes of passion, marriages and divorces, bad financial undertakings, just to name a few, have all occurred because emotions were allowed to be the governing force in the moment.  The more mature you become as a believer, the less this should be the case for you.  You have been given the Holy Spirit to be your leader and guide.  With His help, your can enjoy the emotions of life without them leading you astray.  Submit your feelings and emotions to Him and allow His peace and wisdom to be your guide. – Love and Blessings, Pastor Jeff
