God has given us our emotions. He has created us as emotional beings. Our emotions are a gift from the Lord, a way to feel in ways we can't describe, all the blessings and trials we face in this life. Emotions are not sin, however, when they begin to upset our peace, they cross-over from being who we were created to be, to giving into our flesh.
I'm reminded today that the bible calls us to live as though we are dead, dead to sin. This is such a funny analogy when you think of it, why would a dead man get upset? He's dead!!!
I have always struggled with allowing my emotions get the best of me, so my prayer today is for the grace to walk dead to sin, for the grace to not allow my emotions upset my peace. That others would see God in my response to my emotions.
They say you can't teach an old dog new tricks, God disagrees.
