I want to be able to feel what I feel without responding negatively.
Feelings… We all have them. Some are good and some bad. What am I supposed to do with my feelings? My feelings change so much.
I need to get my feelings under control. SELF-CONTROL. The ability to control oneself, in particular one’s emotions and desires or the expression of them in one’s behavior, especially in difficult situations.
God tells me that self control is one of the fruit of the spirit. “But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such there is no law” Galatians 6:22-23 NIV.
I need to get connected to my source! If I am I am going to handle my feelings, I need to get guidance from the one who created my feelings. I can get connected through prayer, worship, and meditation. Through this process God’s spirit will grow within me. His fruit will show up and flow throughout my life.
I cannot allow my feelings to control me. Say this with me, I have power over my feelings! I control my feelings. My feelings do not control me. When we learn to control our feelings; we gain more control over our life. Will you join me on this journey in mastering our feelings?
