I'm Going Emo

The past two weeks have been an emotional rollercoaster.   I had someone say some unkind things that hurt me.  I felt betrayed and kicked in the stomach.  I take those type of stuff personally.  Then one of my Aunts died.  Again my emotions went spiraling.  Then three days ago, I found outAother Aunt died: I only had two aunts.  So I spent today feeling nostalgic and weepy. 

I could deny those feelings, but that would be lying.

Some days, I am sad,

Some days I am grouchy.

On other days I am Happy,

And on still other days I am silly.

Every one of those emotions is good because God created them.  

Jesus was sad

Jesus was angry

He was happy; all of these.

I am thankful that God gave me feelings.

Because of them, I can sympathize with a coworker who suffers loss.

I can be happy and rejoice when the report from the doctor is good.

I can mourn when another is grieving the loss of a loved one. 

I thank God for our emotions.   

I can be sad: but know it won't last and it will make me stronger.

I can be happy and store that up for later.
