Morning Prayer, Thursday, April 25, 2024 - WORD(S) OF THE DAY:  CONTROLLED BY MY FEELINGS?

Father God, please help me to control my emotions today.  Amen

“Casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ,” (2 Corinthians 10:5).

“Don't let the passion of your emotions lead you to sin! Don't let anger control you or be fuel for revenge, not for even a day.”  Being in our feelings has gotten a lot of us into trouble.  When you were in school and someone said the wrong thing, some of us reacted without thinking.   That may have gotten you sent to the principal’s office or even expelled.  There is also the time the spouse came at you the wrong way that you jumped in your feelings and said some things you later regretted.  Yes, operating in your feelings can be detrimental to the well-being of your happiness.  Words can't be taken back.  We can control our mouth by learning to check our emotions. Listen, and I have said this before, what comes up does not always have to come out.  I have heard people say often, "I do not wear my feelings on my sleeve.  It's too costly." They are so right!   We need to learn to control our feelings and not be controlled by them.  Some people learn this lesson a little too late, after getting fired, after the divorce, after losing a business deal, after, after, after.   As we grow in Christ, some things should get put behind us.  One of those things is taming our tongue which first requires taming our emotions.  Remember this, you are in control of you.  You have the power to stop “you” from allowing your feelings to get the best of you.  That's called discipline.   That’s called checking your feelings and not allowing them to take you down a path that can be painful and disruptive to you emotionally, spiritually and sometimes physically.
