A couple weeks ago our small group started a study on the book of James (from the Bible.) If you haven’t read it before, it’s a good one. Probably one of my favorite books because it’s short, sweet and hits you between the eyes.
My prayer through this study is to get back to a deeper place with the Lord, which sometimes can be a dangerous prayer. Usually, at least for me, a prayer like that means going through a trial in life.
The past couple of weeks have been that for me, a trial. More on an emotional front.
I feel like I’ve gone backwards with captivating my thoughts.
When Mike and I first got married I struggled a lot with of fear of abandonment. I’ve shared this before. I was convinced that he was going to find someone better and leave me. During this season I had the hardest time claiming what I knew to be true. I knew that he loved me. I knew his character and that he committed to me for life, not just till he was ready to move on. I knew all these things. But my emotions and experiences from my past told me different. Instead of believing what I knew to be true, I would cling to those emotions and elevate them as truth.
I was trying to fight those feelings myself but it wasn’t working. When I finally surrendered them and surrendered myself to the Lord, that’s when things started to change. When a thought of fear or doubt would pop into my mind I would combat it with things that I knew about Mike and verses from the bible.
“For God has not given us a spirit of fear and timidity, but of power, love, and self-discipline.” 2 Timothy 1:7
That was the main one I would claim. And eventually those fears went away and I walked in freedom.
Lately, I have been struggling with a different emotion. Anger.
Instead of choosing joy and love in the midst of frustration and sleepless nights, I’m choosing anger. It’s basically my mind playing tricks on me. And again, I’m back at that place of choosing to believe emotions or feelings over what I know to be true.
I had this moment at small group last week, while we sat in silence just praying, that I needed to start combating those feelings. Those feelings are not truth, and every time I give in and linger on them they steal a little part of my heart and joy. Instead, I’m choosing to look up verses on joy, kindness, self control, and a sound mind. Then work on captivating those negative thoughts and replacing them with these verses.
Ok. Just some emotions I’m going through right now that I wanted to share with you.
While we’re on the topic of sharing things. I’m also going to share this refreshing Kiwi Pineapple Agua Fresca drink with you. It only has 3 ingredients and NO refined sugar. It’s literally just fresh kiwi, fresh pineapple and water. That’s it!!
