FREAKING OUT: the goal is to someday get to the point where we can trust in God in the moment and not just in retrospect.  Maybe things will work out, maybe they won’t – but we can either have a sense of God’s love during the crisis, or we can be so freaked out that we forget he is there.  Let’s choose to trust him in the storm.

HOW TO CONTROL YOUR FEELINGS:  Feelings are the flatulence of the mind, or, as the Scriptures say, the desires of your sinful nature.  You don’t have to let them rule your life.  Instead follow the desires of the Holy Spirit and you will experience the beginnings of the Kingdom of Heaven in this life.  Children are dominated by their feelings; adults learn how to manage them.  How do you do this?  It is simple.  Invite the Holy Spirit to lead you.

January 2, 2022 - 7 Ways to Defeat a Bad Mood
7 WAYS TO DEFEAT A BAD MOOD:  We can avoid being dragged down to society’s level of immaturity and let God develop well-formed maturity in us.  The last sentence of Romans 12 in The Message says it all:  “Don’t let evil get the best of you; get the best of evil by doing good.”
