“HARNESSING YOUR EMOTIONS”
PODCAST: “Where Your Thoughts Go, Your Emotions Will Follow”
Deuteronomy 30:19, “I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore, choose life, that both you and your descendents may live.”
Every day, we have an overwhelming number of choices to make. We decide everything from- what to eat for breakfast to the time we go to bed at night. We choose how to use our time and who we spend it with. Everyday, we make a choice as to how to spend our money and what we will buy with it. We choose the time we get up; and what shoes we will wear. We choose to be diligent. We choose to be lazy. We choose to focus on the good or focus on the bad.
The power of choice is one of the most wonderful opportunities we, as children of God, have. Whether we recognize it or not, we are constantly choosing something. Some choices are obvious. Others are much more inconspicuous. However– ALL are choices we are responsible for; And each choice we make will send us somewhere.
Positive, life-giving thoughts produce that which leads to a joy-filled life. Negative, life-draining thoughts lead us down a path to destruction. It is imperative we understand that where we choose to focus our attention largely determines the direction our lives will take. If you want to live your life on a ‘steady plane’ emotionally, you have a responsibility to choose where you allow your thoughts to go.
