God is greater than our feelings, and He knows everything. 1 John 3:20
I have a lot of feelings.
Lately I have been noticing them trying to control me. Anger, love, hurt, stress, confusion. They creep in and try to make me feel crazy. Lots of things have happened in the past few weeks to put me on an emotional rollercoaster. But I am slowly pushing through them and I keep reciting this verse to myself. God is greater than my feelings. He knows everything I am going through, and he is ALLOWING it!
No eye has seen any God besides you, who acts on behalf of those who wait for him. You come to the help of those who gladly do right, who remember your ways. Isaiah 64:4&5
Last night I was reading and journaling and thinking about what that really means. And I think I’m beginning to grasp it. I wrote down a bunch of things that I have been worrying about or feeling overly emotional about and putting it on paper helped. Then I just wrote notes to God.
God I am really worried about _____. I’d like it to work out this way, but You know what is best. Please protect my heart and since you are bigger than my feelings, I’d like to hand it over to you and not worry about it anymore.
How freeing. But I woke up in the morning still anxious and had to hand them over to Him all over again. I think this will be a lesson that takes me a lifetime to learn, but I do have peace that since God is bigger than my feelings, trusting Him with them will NEVER let me down.
