So often we hide “difficult” emotions because we believe that to feel them, let alone express them, is weak. Yet it’s fear, shame, regret, grief, etc. that have the greatest impact on our physical and mental health. It’s essential we take off our emotional masks and honestly own what we are feeling. Not only does accepting that we all experience darker places and spaces in our being alleviate how much they impact our ability to love, work and lead, practicing emotional exposure gives birth to the joy, courage, creativity, authenticity, and so much more that we long for to define our lives. Emotions, all emotions, are of God and signposts to a holistic and whole life. Cont. in comments...
We're often quick to 🏃🏾♀️and text/call those who we feel can help us in the moment. (Which there's absolutely nothing wrong with getting wise counsel, and in fact, we should).
However (comma👀) if we're not MINDFUL we can often turn to others before we even THINK about turning to God for revelation and answers on a matter.
Whether it's relationship issues, life direction, business guidance, character readjustments (Lord knows ONLY He can change our ❤️) none of these things are beneath God's concern for us!!
And get this, He has ANSWERS for EACH and EVERY ONE OF THESE JOKAS!
It doesn't matter WHAT you're needing answers and insight on- He just wants you to talk with HIM about it! Then, listen and prepare for next steps.
This is a SIMPLE way to honor God DAILY (and not just wait for Sunday to tap in🤦🏽♀️)
Honor Him and He'll honor you with giving you the direction you heart desires EVERY. TIME.
