Are you an emotional person?
I certainly am. It truly is the part of my life that must be disciplined by the Lord – ie surrendered. As a child I would cry over a dead ant. I have ridden a roller-coaster my whole life of volatility -both the highs and the lows. I’m in no place to advise others. I am still very much a work in progress.
One truth I do know and I pass it on here. Emotions unless ‘sanctified’ can very quickly lead into ‘soulish’ behaviour then just like wilful children we can be driven by our basest instinct and the world is the poorer (ie when adults behaviour like children).
That’s why loving others more than we love ourselves is the great commandment. Then we can find it easier to say sorry and express forgiveness.
The emotional nature of humankind is a God Gift but like every Gift it needs to be both appreciated and surrendered to the Giver.
Rich creativity and extraordinary beauty can come from the lives of emotional people, but worth to the world comes when all these giftings are truly balanced with the mental, social and physical aspects of their visible living as an example to others.
What about the emotional and the spiritual? Blending them as one often is a sad mistake.
Spiritual – tomorrow.
Today lets all rejoice in the tremendous emotional experiences of our lives. Feel life as you live it!
Live a beautiful day – Make a memory
