Consumed by Negative Emotions
With all that’s going on in the world and in our lives, it’s easy to feel depressed, discouraged, down, anxious, sad, disappointed, lost, fearful, frustrated, restless, panicky, stressed, uncertain, worried, nervous, doubtful, hopeless, etc.. It’s easy to wonder what’s next, are things ever going to get better, is anything going to change, why, why me, etc.
There’s just so much going on, it’s unreal. We are saturated with negative news on top of negative news coming from all angles (television, computer, radio, cellular phone, etc.). Fortunately, we can turn off the news when we get tired of it or can’t take anymore, and pray, pray, pray. Then many of us have our own drama/issues/struggles (home, work, college, school, neighborhood and even church) going on. Unfortunately, we can’t turn it off or ignore it; we have to deal with whatever is going on in our lives.
Consumed by Negative Emotions: Call on God!
So when you are consumed by negative emotions: call on God. Turn your worries over to God. He is the only One that can help you. When you go to God first, when you talk to God and you listen to Him and do what He tells you to do, you will endure, persevere, overcome and get through.
God, in the name of Jesus, through the Holy Spirit, will strengthen your mind, soul, body and faith. God knows who (family, friend, neighbor, co-worker, stranger, mental health professional, etc.) you need and what you need. This is why it’s important to stay in tune with God and allow the Holy Spirit to guide you. Because sometimes we think we know who we need and what we need and try doing things on our own (not being led by the Holy Spirit), then things don’t work out.
When God provides the resources we need (and we may be surprised who and what He provides, just trust God), it all works out. God works behind the scene, lining up things, putting people and things in the right place, at the right time to get us through and make things better. I know this personally. I’m sharing this with you because I’ve experienced God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit first hand.
So don’t give in and don’t give up. When you call on God, you will feel His love and He will give you peace in the midst of all that’s going on.
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take.” Proverbs 3:5-6 NLT
“God is our refuge and strength, always ready to help in times of trouble.” Psalm 46:1 NLT
“When they call on me, I will answer; I will be with them in trouble. I will rescue and honor them.” Psalm 91:15 NLT
“Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:6-7 NLT
