To Whom Do You Offer Your Emotions?

WOMEN ARE NURTURERS. THERE’S SO MUCH WE CAN DO WITH THE POWER OF OUR FEELINGS, THE POWER OF OUR SENSITIVITY.
(Nicole Kidman)

I have an excess of feelings…a plethora of impressions…an abundance of perceptions.  I am very sensitive, perceptive, and aware.  I am a woman.

DON’T YOU KNOW THAT WHEN YOU OFFER YOURSELVES TO SOMEONE TO OBEY HIM AS SLAVES, YOU ARE SLAVES TO THE ONE WHOM YOU OBEY—WHETHER YOU ARE SLAVES TO SIN, WHICH LEADS TO DEATH, OR TO OBEDIENCE, WHICH LEADS TO RIGHTEOUSNESS?
(Romans 6:16).

Regardless of whether you are a man or woman, you do not simply exist, but God made you into a self-determining being—a being whose quality of existence depends on your choices. Therefore, be careful whom you obey. Be careful to whom you offer your emotions. Be aware that you will become a slave to the one whom you serve with your emotions.

MAN IS NOT FULLY CONDITIONED AND DETERMINED BUT RATHER DETERMINES HIMSELF WHETHER HE GIVES IN TO CONDITIONS OR STAND UP TO THEM.  IN OTHER WORDS, MAN IS ULTIMATELY SELF-DETERMINING.  MAN DOES NOT SIMPLY EXIST BUT ALWAYS DECIDES WHAT HIS EXISTENCE WILL BE, WHAT HE WILL BECOME IN THE NEXT MOMENT
(Victor E. Frankl).

Precious Child, be careful whom you serve with your emotions. The father-of-lies is constantly looking for a way to use your emotions to serve him. He uses these sensitive characteristics as an open door to enter into your heart and deposit his painful beliefs of non-acceptance into your soul.

However, if you offer your emotions to Me, your Redeemer, your emotions are safe.  They will be filled with My Truth, Hope, and Love.  They will be satisfied with My Joy and Peace.  They will be charged with My Self-control and Patience, for I came to redeem you from all wickedness, so you may belong to Me as My very own.

JESUS CHRIST, WHO GAVE HIMSELF FOR US TO REDEEM US FROM ALL WICKEDNESS AND TO PURIFY FOR HIMSELF A PEOPLE THAT ARE HIS VERY OWN, EAGER TO DO WHAT IS GOOD
(Titus 2:13-14).

To whom do you offer your moment-by-moment emotions?

PRAYER:  Lord Jesus, I praise You for giving Yourself for me. Redeem me, my Lord, from all wickedness, and purify me for Yourself, so I may be someone who is Your very own.

And here lies the root to all our problems: not the FACTS we experienced during our childhood circumstances…but the CONCLUSIONS we made in response to these facts.
