Letting Feelings Control You?

Its been months that I felt so tired, there are also instances that I’ve been easily upset.

I don’t know if its hormonal? The mood swings? Or is it because my calendar is not simplified?

But while having my devotion,

He enlightened me that “Gracie, you are allowing your feelings and emotions to control you!”

So that’s it! Ayun ‘yon!

I am letting my emotions and feelings dictate how I am going to run my day. Instead of me, controlling how I will feel and how I will react.

Thankful that God reminded me about it, that situations and circumstances should not dictate how I should feel, not even my toddler’s tantrums, nor the dishes to be washed, a messy house to clean and deadlines to meet.

I should let the “Joy from the Lord” overflow in my attitude, in my decisions, in my words and in my actions. And be in total control of my emotions and feelings.

And it is indeed true, that in our weakness, He is our strength.

For the sake of Christ, then, I am content with weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and calamities. For when I am weak, then I am strong. 2 Corinthians 12:10 ESV

It may be hard to control our feelings but with God’s grace we surely can.
