Hey there! I'm sharing about emotional support this week on social media. I hope you can join me :)
Emotions, feelings....yep, it's an endless topic. I'm telling you what, emotions are something else. It's part of what makes us human. The good, the bad & the ugly!
Each of us can experience a similar event completely different. Our past, personality & beliefs usually determine how we individually feel.
I love something I came across in a Lisa Terkeurst book- feelings are indicators not dictators-. That can be hard, can't it? Trying to manage our emotions/feelings can be drowning at times. There are just so many. Daily life is a non-stop fast moving emotion train. Let's pause right here for a second....
Are you stuck? Are you being swallowed up? Are you numb? Are you ok? Are you hopeless?
Can I offer you something....can I share my hope? It's Christ. My hope is in Him. Trust me, there have been some seasons where I had so much happening that others were praying me through because I was just trying to breathe. I'm not saying not to have feelings or that you need to do x y & z. I'm saying that no matter what, even in the stormiest of storms, there is a God who never leaves - even when you can't feel a single thing.
Don't give up! There is hope. There is help! I get the raw hurt & lonely feeling. I do. Know this...you are not alone. Shame, regret, fear, anxiety, hopelessness, anger, grief, sorrow, anguish, confusion, emptiness...they hurt & they eventually ruin lives. Grab the rope of forgiveness, hope, kindness, gentleness, encouragement, support, peace & thankfulness. Let the Lord pull you up into His arms.
Come on over to my Instagram or Facebook & let's find some hope together ❤
