Mastering One’s Emotions

One day I realized that I hadn’t fully mastered my emotions, as well as I thought.

I was directed by the Lord many years ago via a scripture that He kept leading me to go over; It might have been during a time I went over one passage every day for a week.

I was very happy while going over the passage one day, like “Lord, I thank you that I’m not doing any of these things”.

It was not to boast or feel superior to anyone. I was just happy in my progress.

But just as soon as I came to that conclusion the Lord gently let me know in so many words:

Baby girl, you have not yet arrived. There is always work to do. There is always room for improvement.

He had me go over it one last time and when I got to one part in particular I heard a voice say that’s you.

So I quickly told that voice he was wrong “no, that’s not me, I don’t do that”. My patient Pappa didn’t reprimand me, but He did repeat “that’s you” two more times.

After that third time I stopped and said to myself “is what I’m hearing something to hurt me or lead me astray; or is it something that will help me?

The answer I returned was it’s actually something that would make me better. So I replied “okay Lord, I hear you. Maybe my definition of this is a little off…” so I looked it up and read every piece of that definition. And understood how it was me.

I apologized to the Lord and sought to change what was displeasing about me to my Daddy.

I have been managing my emotions a lot better, since that encounter with the Holy Spirit.

Patience truly is a virtue. And learning how to apply it before a response is worth more than Bitcoin.

Knowing how to recognize when it’s us is a big deal. And knowing how to let the Lord lead is even bigger.

I hope this finds you well ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚

Be Blessed and Encouraged in the Lordโฃ๏ธ๐Ÿค๐Ÿ–ค๐ŸคŽ๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿ’œ๐Ÿงกโค๏ธ
