Trust Me with your emotions. Be aware of them, but allow Me to guide you. Emotions are not bad in and of themselves. I want you to feel deeply so do not be afraid to allow yourself to feel. You have spent your whole life trying to guard your heart from painful emotions and experiences. Instead, rely on My grace in each situation instead of shutting down inside.
Come to Me when you are hurting, angry, confused, or in pain. I already know how you feel and I know why. When I put My finger on the spot that is hurting or needs attention, do not ignore it. Instead, acknowledge it. If there is an action point for you, look to Me and My word. I will quicken your spirit to all truth, for I am the Way, the Truth and the Life.
Let Me guide and direct your steps moment by moment. Do not fall into the trap of guilt and condemnation. Ask Me to help you navigate through the "ocean of emotion". For just as My Son said, "Peace Be Still" to the physical storm, I say "Peace Be Still" to the emotional storms that you face. Remember My Son was asleep in the boat, entrusting Himself unto My care. He did not let the storm disturb His peace, for He is peace and He lives in you. Claim His peace as your own.
Matthew 5:8 The Message (MSG)
You’re blessed when you get your inside world—your mind and heart—put right. Then you can see God in the outside world.
Romans 8:1-2 The Message (MSG)
1-2 With the arrival of Jesus, the Messiah, that fateful dilemma is resolved. Those who enter into Christ’s being-here-for-us no longer have to live under a continuous, low-lying black cloud. A new power is in operation. The Spirit of life in Christ, like a strong wind, has magnificently cleared the air, freeing you from a fated lifetime of brutal tyranny at the hands of sin and death.
