How Do You Handle Difficult Emotions?
Please contact us if you have questions or if you need some encouragement.
Difficult emotions can be overwhelming and sometimes seem impossible to overcome. It’s easy to get lost in the negative feelings and spiral out of control. However, it’s important to remember that we have the power within us as Christians called The Holy Spirit to manage these emotions. Instead of trying to suppress or ignore them, we should face them head-on. When I find myself struggling with difficult emotions, I take a step back and allow myself time to process what I’m feeling by checking in with God.
Our best direction out of complex emotions is to ask God, “What do you want me to do?” I ask for guidance from God. Seeking support from someone who understands also helps me gain perspective on my situation. We must keep in mind that experiencing painful emotions is normal; it’s how we choose to deal with them that makes all the difference in our healing journey! ~ Bill Greguska
Proverbs 29:11 Fools give full vent to their rage, but the wise bring calm in the end.

Better Ways To Deal With Difficult Emotions!
Have we all gone through our share of complicated emotions in the past or even today? You do not have to do life all by yourself. I have learned, and I firmly believe what it says:
Leaning on God in the hard times is as essential as depending on God during the better days. I have found that prayer keeps me close to the Lord and comforts me while giving me hope and direction when sometimes life seems very painful. Difficult emotions come to us without much warning sometimes. That is why we need to walk close to God every day, not just the dog days of life!
Psalm 46:1 God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble.
