Don’t follow fickle feelings, follow God.
TRUE STORY: Emotions can be a hand full to manage . They are affected by practically everything and can lead you in a multitude of directions (some good, some bad) if you are not equipped with the capacity to manage them properly. Needless to say, there’s no easy fix for this because it ties into human nature. However, here’s the thing: The ability to control your emotions goes hand in hand with the ability to be able to control yourself. This ability is a gift that God gives to those who decide to (free will) follow him. Aside from this course action, you will always follow fickle feelings and they will always lead you to the middle of nowhere pleasurable. I say this because I have a relationship with God and I still struggle with trying to keep my emotions (fickle feelings) from consuming my rationale. I can only imagine the difficulty this task must be for those who do not know him at all. I guess that’s where improper outlets derive from or how addictions are form and how addicts are born. It happens….Take care of yourself….
