I've been having moments of worry. I've been having moments of emotional ups and downs. My eating habits have been terrible. I was shocked because on the mental/emotionally side I should have been 140/90 which is sky high. Physically I was “normal”. I was calm, rested, and my blood pressure didn’t indicate any stress or worry. I thought wow I may be 101/58 but I sure don’t feel like it. It was crazy to me to be okay on the inside and not be okay on the inside at the same time.
Have you ever felt like that? Like all was well but your emotions were getting the best of you? I finally surrendered my emotions to God this week because there is no reason at all I should have been “normal” yet non normal. When your emotions and feelings start to get out of control, it’s time to speak God into your situation. There’s a lot going on in life but that doesn’t give you the right to act crazy. I couldn’t believe last week when I woke up mad and stayed mad the entire day! That’s crazy. If my physical is okay why don’t I feel it? It’s a heart issue. There are areas that you haven’t given to God. Its simple things like not spending enough time in our word. I can’t tell how many times I thought emotions and feelings weren’t important as long as I was staying out the club and going to church on Sunday. We think things like our emotions don’t matter or need to be dealt with but I'm here to tell you they do.
This week take one day to be silent. Don’t talk to anybody and refrain from social media. I think we let outside sources influence our emotions in ways we can’t even see and that’s not good either. It will be an interesting sight to see how you feel once you sit back relax and say nothing. Try it and let me know how it goes. The most important thing though is to really be on the same page with you mind, body, and soul. You can be physically fit and emotionally out of shape, physically well and spiritually dead and God doesn’t want us to be like that. Give your normal’s to God and have him work on the rest. He only wants us to be complete.
I love YOU and I thank you for reading this week’s blog. If you have any questions comments or concerns email me or send me a message on one of our pages on this site. I'm going to be in Detroit/Toledo this weekend to visit my friend and I am attending my publishers (@justmike_) poetry tour as a vendor so if you are there stop by and get a book! Pray for me and all the changes that are occurring in my life I would appreciate it. I love you like crazy and remember to keep God first.
