Emotional Freedom

There is something powerful about emotions. They guide us or inhibit us, and, yet, best of all, connect us. They affect our mental health along with our physical and spiritual health. Best news is we can learn to understand and control emotions.

Emotions are not designed to control us or our circumstances - they are to enhance pleasure.

The emotions of joy, laughter, happiness, contentment, peace, amusement, hope, and gratitude are expressions we choose. These are all emotions God designed for us to express pleasure in Him and His creation. AND these emotions are all an option for us to express.

The emotions of anger, sadness, fear, rage, loneliness, annoyance, and disgust are also emotions we choose to express. These emotions can build until the release valve shutters and explodes.

Knowing how to control our emotions instead of our emotions controlling us is an important aspect of living the best life.

To see emotions as a byproduct of our beliefs creates a stability that explains why God's Word explains self control leads to godliness. Emotional stability is the quickest way to find peace.
