Life is hard. We have to decide to live or simply exist. We can’t even cheat in life. I can follow everything that you’re doing and still end up feeling horrible about how life is treating me. meanwhile seems to me you’re enjoying life to its fullest.
Life, in my opinion is perspective. I could wake up everyday hoping to have a good day or I can decide that no matter what happens that day I’m going to live with firm intention. Not allowing the day to be dictated by anything happening on the outside of me but holding firm to the perspective of my choosing. You ever look at someone who is ALWAYS looking on the bright side and want to punch them in the face!! UMM, yea, me either…. The problem with those “glass is always half full” people is that their thoughts feel dismissive. It feels as though its not grounded in reality, or will not allow me to have a moment of humanity.
Some things hurt, life is not always fair, what IS right and what FEELS right is very often opposite, and Donald Trump is the 45th president of the United States of America. Some inalienable truths force us into action and others force us into our feelings. I find that our feelings often lead us astray. Feelings are useful as long as your using them to monitor YOU. The minute you start to act from a place of feelings you exclude truth. The only thing my feelings ever changed was MY mood. As I said earlier. I can DECIDE or I can hope. In all actuallity I do both. Some days I’m great at staying out of my feelings. My understanding of life is that nothing is out of the control of God. So therefore nothing should shake or rattle me. Other days I want to jump, kick, and scream like an uncontrollable toddler. I want all of you to “UNDERSTAND” where I’m coming from and validate me!! See it from MY PERSPECTIVE! FEEL angry with me because this is an angering situation!! All of these very human feelings discredit my faith. Not that it is wrong for me to have them, but that it is wrong for them to have me!
2 Corinthians 10:5 Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into cativity every thought to the obedience of Christ
Give it to God. Evey feeling of discouragement, every bit of confusion in your mind, every FEELING… I very often gave Christ my feelings packed with tears and frustration and expected him to cry with me. I very often got those same feelings handed back to me and told “its not that deep”! Any feeling that would make you question who’s in control is not from God and should be CAST DOWN! Decide how your going to feel. Don’t let your feelings decide how you are going to act.
