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.
