Our feelings, and how to deal with them, is a topic very few churches address. We all have emotions; however, it is important that our emotions do not have us. Because God has given us emotional control, we are in error if we think we cannot help the way we feel. Ignoring negative emotions is not the answer. To succeed in life, we must learn how to acknowledge them as they surface and speak the Word of God over them. This reinforces our authority over them and keeps them from spilling over when they should be contained. In this way, we can master our emotions the way God wants us to.
