Emotions

by Kelsey
Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God. 1 John 4:7
 
Some days, our feelings seem out of control. We’re just reacting to everything that lands in front of us, and we feel like we just can’t help it.
 
It might seem as if our moods and emotions are a curse rather than a blessing. They give us so much trouble! What good are emotions if they only confuse us? But God has given women all these emotions for a very good reason. Think about it. Women are most empathetic. We are able to put ourselves in another’s place and understand instinctively how someone else is feeling. We cry easily because we feel for one another. Women are capable of great understanding, great compassion, and great mercy. When Jesus urged His followers to love one another, care for one another, and encourage one another, He gave women a commission for which they were perfectly suited!

One Comment to “Emotions”

  1. Mmm, so true. And a particularly timely reminder during a time when my emotions have been so strong! It can be difficult at times to remember that emotions are not a curse – yet they need to be kept in their God-appointed place, and not allowed to rule unchecked!
