Can we maintain EMOTIONAL BALANCE?

Good Morning!


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

About Faye

I m a wife, mother and grandmother. I have always enjoyed writing even from an early age. My book Beyond the Ashes has been written as a labour of love. All the characters are real to me and their story needed to be told. As a Christian my desire is to write General Fiction stories about real people but Hope and a desire for 'better' will always be part of the journey. I have had several short stories published over the years and moderate success in writing competitions. I realized as I was thinking today (30/01/15) that perhaps I should add here that I have had life experiences of many valley times but also many mountain top experiences. I can understand and be beside anyone who finds their life in tatters because I have 'been' there. Of course as I have got older as well there have been the added sorrows of losing not only older family members but also one by one finding the dearest of friends and the ones of greatest support and care also dying. On the site of rich mountains has been my certainty of the value of marriage and how grateful I am that after loss and sadness I made a happy and long-lasting marriage commitment. The one who was my best friend back then is still my best friend 45 years later. Beyond the Ashes touches upon the POWER of LOVE when folk can forget about their own personal 'feelings' and reach out in LOVE to a desperate and broken person.
