This morning I had been feeling out of sorts. Between this and that and worrying about money, Don and I chatted and we came to a conclusion.
Feelings are the flavor in life.
Feelings are not the anchor.
God’s truth is the anchor.
So when my feelings are swirling around in my mind and heart I can treat them with a proper respect.
They are flavors that enhance the day.
Sometimes they are a bitter flavor, or sometimes sour, sometimes sweet.
But in the end, they are just an enhancement, not the reality.
This morning as I was fretting, worrying about money
(a negative feeling, yucky flavor)
What was the truth?
The truth is I am fine.
Can I do all the things I think are SO important?
Maybe, maybe not.
But the truth is, my life is not based on my bank account.
My feelings need to come in line with what is true.
Can I travel all I want?
Can I buy all the stuff I want?
Can I ever, have all my wants and desires?
What to do with the feelings associated with that disappointment?
Recognize the disappointment as a feeling
Refocus on God’s Word.
Corral those feelings and make them a flavor and not a master.
” For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them.
🔸But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.”
So, there you have it.
Pray and trust our God that loves us dearly
