Emotions are a crazy thing. The world isn’t run by them, and our lives shouldn’t be dictated by them either. But what do you do when your little emotional world seems to be imploding in on you, when things you were wishing and hoping for aren’t coming true, when what you feel should be just isn’t happening? How do you face a trial that seems like it goes on forever? How can you come to terms with your false expectations that have dropped out from under you? It’s easy to say “get over it,” but it’s a different thing entirely to actually do it. Honestly, I’m not entirely sure how. But here are a few good thoughts.
Trust in God, because His love never changes. His mercies endure forever. God will never disappoint. It might sound like I’m using God as a crutch here, but he is our Father, after all. He is the one we run to. My God is a strong tower. The righteous run into Him and they are safe. Maybe for those tough times, when you need to get through something, you do need to fall back into His arms. Let go, and let God. Let God work something new in you. He’ll do it, because He’s faithful. He is love. God is all-powerful; He is everywhere; He is all-knowing. He knows exactly what you’re going through. Let Him comfort you and raise you up to new hights.
“Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good;
his love endures forever.” -1 Chronicles 16:34
