Emotions can be so hard to trust.
Emotions usually can get the best of us. Yes, we are human, and it is good to express our emotions, but we must also think by using our mind and not our heart. We should be considerate and respectful of others and not overstep our boundaries.
There are times when you are tempted,for the men it may be a woman and he is married.
“Do not let your heart turn to her ways or stray into her paths”. Proverbs 7:25
The man gets seduced by her flattery and emotions. Your on a business trip far away from home, who will know! This road eventually will lead to destruction if you follow her path.
On the other side the guy blows off the handle with his anger and is afraid to confront his own issues. He takes it out on his family and close friends, only letting his emotions of anger, violence, gossip, and belittling get the best of him.
There are too many emotions to write hear including, joy, sadness, fear, anxiety, trust, jealousy, envy, love excitement, depression, you get the point.
Expressing our emotions is good for us, but in a positive light. Sometimes anger turned inward causes depression. How can I make this a positive outcome rather than self – destruct?
Think or talk it through with someone you can trust. Exercise like running or swimming, the gym, etc., pray to God and confess where you may have been wrong if necessary.
I find releasing my emotions to the Lord is healthy and effective. Read the book of Psalms where David expressions his emotions often even with tears. Yes, big boys do cry, and crying is expressing our emotions even when it hurts.
Remember, his own lust got the best of him with Bathsheba because he followed his heart and not thinking things through with his mind.
Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it”.
Proverbs 4:23 NIV
I’m not sure we can trust our emotions, but I do know we can trust a loving God the Father who knows and cares for each of us. My friend let it go and stop making mountains out of molehills.
If you were wrong, then it is best to go reconcile and make it right. By doing this you will become a better person.
Have a great week my friend and make up the lost time by making things right. ❤
