Need Emotional Encouragement?
Find Emotional Encouragement Through God’s Love!
Do you sometimes need some emotional encouragement? Did you realize that emotions are a gift from God, yet when we can not control our emotions, that is where the problems come in? If you could use some encouragement, you will find it here.
What Makes You Tick Emotionally?
- Realize You Are Worthy Of Love And Respect. If you know your worth as a person, you won’t be so quick to take the things that others say to you so personally. Take time to get to know yourself, and put aside what others may think of you. Take time in prayer to make a list of at least 5 things about yourself that you’re grateful for, and remember them when you find yourself getting attacked verbally by someone.
- Understand Your Emotional Triggers. Each one of us is created by God. All of us have emotional triggers from the past either because of three basic reasons; personal sin, other peoples sin, or just by chance. There are certain actions people take that may trigger us to become sensitive to particular things. For example, if your mother was overly critical and you tried to please her, but when someone points out that you made a mistake is something that could trigger you to feel more sensitive than another person might under the similar circumstances. When you do get upset about a situation, ask yourself: “Am I really upset about this situation, or is this one of the emotional triggers that I need to overcome with God’s help?
- Be Authentic How You Live. This is the practice of letting go of thinking you need to be like someone else, but rather hold on to who you are by being yourself. You must truly accept who and what God made you. Practice authenticity by doing God’s will, is what’s best for you, like it or not. That could be at times putting others in front of your needs, and other times putting your own needs first depending on the situation.
- Mistakes Do Happen. When you do make a mistake, don’t forget to forgive yourself. It’s important to take responsibility for your actions, but don’t punish yourself too much if someone disapproves of you, especially if what you do is not inappropriate or ungodly. Accept that you aren’t perfect, and remember that there’s really no such thing as a bad mistake especially if you can learn from them.
- Set Healthy Boundaries. Yes, God’s word tells us to love one another, but there are times that we need to set proper boundaries in your relationships which will help you keep things in perspective. You need to put these boundaries in place by saying “no” to work, loved ones or activities that you don’t want to do or that harm you in some way. Doing too much to please others can lead you to feel overly sensitive when they do something that becomes upsetting to you. Even Jesus himself set boundaries when he turned the tables in the temple, making a statement that what the people were doing was wrong.
- Let It Go. Use a painful experience from your past to help make you who you are. Use it to give you strength, empathy, and character to become a better person. We all have something that has hurt us. Don’t let your weakness define who you are. Instead, through prayer, use it to become stronger and more Christ-like because of it.
- Kindness Is A Wonderful Thing. But being kind to others doesn’t always guarantees their acceptance and approval if that is your motive? We would be better off to serve others and ourselves if we do things because we want to, not because we expect something in return. Kindness and love go hand in hand, and the Lord commands us to love Him with all our heart, mind, and soul, and to love others as we love ourselves.
- Think And Be Positive While Trusting God. When something upsets you or gets under your skin, it’s helpful to take a look at the situation from a more logical perspective. Did the situation call for the reaction you had, or are you losing your patience unnecessarily? Often it is best to turn the cheek when others disrespect or hurt you. You do not need to confront every situation that hurts your feelings or is objectionable to you. Ask yourself if the other person really is doing something wrong, or are you taking the situation too personally? If someone is truly being hurtful, you can ask for what you need, or work on letting it go of the negative thoughts and feelings? Think before you say or do things that you might regret.

What About Pain?
We all feel pain, whether physical or emotional and though it seems at times like it may never go away, it can and it will. When we feel powerless over our past, we feel guilty. When we feel powerless over our future, we feel afraid.
When we feel powerless over the present, we can often feel depressed. And when we feel like the people, or circumstances of our lives just won’t change, we can feel angry. Ephesians 4:26-27
Think about this for a moment—depression, fear, guilt, and anger are four of the most powerful negative emotions you will ever experience. And ALL of them stem from a sense of powerlessness.
The thought that there’s not much we can do about the economy or our weight or the allergies we grew up with etc. imprisons us to accept and tolerate a mediocre and dull life.
