#BreakingBarriers WEEK 15

1. Emotions…going to be a fun topic #BreakingBarriers

2. Emotions are incredibly important to us as human beings. They are a God-given part of our make-ups. #BreakingBarriers

3. It is important to distinguish between positive emotions and negative emotions and also recognise the importance of both. #BreakingBarriers

4. We often play down the importance of emotions because we don’t tend to see them physically. #BreakingBarriers

5. We must understand that our emotional well-being has an effect on our physical well-being, and therefore cannot be ignored. #BreakingBarriers

6. We ignore negative emotions because society and the Church has told us we are not supposed to feel that way. #BreakingBarriers

7. If there is something wrong we tend to deny it, push it away and say it doesn’t exist. We come to church, we smile… #BreakingBarriers

8. …We tell everybody we’re fine and we go home feeling as miserable. That is not reality! #Breakingbarriers

9. We need to be honest, open with our feelings, and understand that even as Christians, we will experience negative emotions #BreakingBarriers

10. Transparency is so so key. What you cannot confront and air out in the open, has power over you and will keep you bound. #breakingbarriers

11. Suppressing your emotions is not the way to overcome or overcome them. Suppression and are mastery very different. #BreakingBarriers

12. When you bury your emotions by refusing to admit or deal with them, you give an opportunity for sin to grow in your life. #Breakingbarriers

13. The major yet subtle sin in the area of emotions is… pride. #BreakingBarriers

14. Yes, acknowledge your feelings, but declare that the truth of God’s word is above them. #BreakingBarriers

15. A scripture from someone who kept it REAL in the Bible. David. He vented to God, showing the raw nature of his feelings. #BreakingBarriers

16. Why am I discouraged? Why is my heart so sad? I WILL put my hope in God! I WILL praise him again–my Saviour and my God! Psalm 43:5  #BreakingBarriers

17. Even when you feel down, you still have a choice to *run with your feelings or to run with hope and praise!!! #BreakingBarriers

18. Mastering your emotions is a conscious choice. You completely master them by choosing to surrender them to The Master #BreakingBarriers

19. What does this look like practically? It looks like VENTING to God, the real raw kind. God isn’t shocked by your feelings #BreakingBarriers

20. It looks like PRAISING. Psychologically, it is so healthy to raise your hands above your head when you feel overwhelmed #BreakingBarriers

21. Raise your hands in praise to the one who is able to bring your chaos into order and give you joy in the midst of sorrow. #BreakingBarriers

22. One more thing before I round up. Never confuse our fickle human feelings for the way God feels about us… #BreakingBarriers

23. Feelings are fickle. One minute we feel one way, the next minute we feel another.#BreakingBarriers

24. Our feelings change, but we must be grateful that we serve a constant God. He’s the same yesterday, today and forever. #BreakingBarriers

25. God treats you based on what He knows to be true about you and not by your ‘feelings’. #BreakingBarriers

26. Master your emotions by confronting and not suppressing them. Master your emotions by being REAL with God about them. #BreakingBarriers

27. Master your emotions by laying them down and picking up His word as the truth, the reality that overrides your feelings #BreakingBarriers

28. Master your emotions by being transparent. Master your emotions by being heavily endowed with self-control. #BreakingBarriers

29. Done 🙂 Here’s to being people that can master our emotions both spiritually and physically! #BreakingBarriers
