Sitting here like… Annoyed and then I remember how p. Sunhee says emotions are chemicals released by our thoughts. I’ve always felt like I can’t control my emotions, but if I can control my mind, I can control my emotions. But I don’t WANT to change my mind, I WANT to be annoyed, I feel justified in being annoyed. BUT…. I know that isn’t God’s will, it’s my own stubborn will. So I will myself to shift my foolish thoughts and will to submit to and align with the will of God. I know His will is greater and is right, my foolishness is so… Foolish. So I command my soul to shift, and when my soul (mind, will, and emotions) shift… I return to my joy center. I’m choosing to obey and get off my thorn seat and onto the appreciation seat. And now… I feel good because I realize that no matter who does what to me I can choose to be like my Daddy and not be moved by it. Hallelujah, this soulish girl has become a woman who, in this new season of adulthood, can truly walk out 2 Corinthians 10:5 just like I’ve wanted to for years. My emotions don’t control my thoughts, but my thoughts rule my emotions, and my thoughts will be kingdom thoughts.
