Feelings

Photo Caption: I have so many feelings, all day, every day. I went to @jamietworkowski' snook signing this weekend for "If You Feel Too Much" because the title almost feels like it was written just for me (see, feelings. All of them). But I'm slowly being taught that my feelings can't be my only T R U S T. I do so firmly believe that God has given us feelings for good and healthy expression of so many hard and beautiful and joyful reasons. But I also think that when my hope is set on my feelings, I have no firm foundation. I trust my feelings about 99% of the time. But i have reached a breaking point recently, where I've seen in detail the danger of putting full faith in my feelings. I am slowly attempting to pry myself away from those unhealthy and tumultuous feelings that take such precedence in my life, and cling to the God who does not move, my firm foundation. And I am holding tight to a particular hymn, I Need Thee Every Hour, because it is so true. I need Jesus EVERY hour, because every house I have 500 different feelings, and I don't know how to sort them or what to trust. But I know that I can trust Jesus. "Lord, I believe. Help me in my unbelief". Let not your hearts be troubled. Believe in God; believe also in me. John 14:1
