Emotions are not good or bad, but the behavior that comes from your feelings is neither good nor bad! The emotions that hurt others or ourselves are what I would call destructive emotions. The emotions that bring joy and love to others and ourselves are what I would call good emotions. All emotions come and go, but all emotions need to be accountable to God. ~ Bill Greguska
James 1:5 If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you.

Turning Your Emotions And Feelings Into Faith!
Are Your Emotions Pretty Stable?
Your feelings are like a caboose on a train. Feelings need to follow the engine (intellect), not emotions (the caboose). The leading needs to be the intellect. God gives each of us a brain to make wise choices, and from those wise choices comes good emotions and contentment when we follow God’s will. But if we allow our feelings to lead us, we often get derailed and crash. People often let their feelings run the train, which leads to derailment because of a lack of wisdom. God had taught us in his word. Bottom line, keep your emotions under the control of your intellect and keep following God in your everyday life, for with prayer, God will give you your direction in life!
It has been said to follow your heart; I encourage you to follow the Lord instead. When you follow your heart, keep in mind what it says in Jeremiah 17:9 The heart is deceitful above all things and beyond cure. Who can understand it? For these reasons and many other reasons. I choose not to allow my emotions to control me but instead follow Jesus Christ and His teaching from God’s word, which has all the answers we need. ~Bill Greguska
There Are Five Different Basic Temperaments:
Each temperament is broken down into three categories. So while it’s impossible to determine your exact character in each category without a complete analysis, you may see yourself in one of these overviews.
Are Your Emotions Healthy?
Emotions Need To Be Kept In Check!
Feelings we have are not necessarily right or wrong, good or bad. But what we do with some of our so-called “feelings” is essential. For example, in the Bible, we should not allow the sun to go down on our anger.
I’m not saying anger is evil, but we need to control all our negative emotions, such as anger. God’s word also says in Proverbs 29:11 Fools give full vent to their rage, but the wise bring calm in the end.
When we harbor hatred in our hearts, there is no room for love. Keeping our negative emotions in control can be impossible to do on our own. That’s where prayer and Christian fellowship with others come in. Negative emotions can do a ton of damage, not only in relationships but also in your life.
Satan Never Rests!
Satan tries to confuse us, tempt us, lie to us, steal from us, kill us, and ultimately destroy us. Because Satan hates God, he wants to hurt God by harming us. Since we are at war with Satan, we need to use our intelligence rather than emotions.
Get into God’s word and use it as a shield to fight. We are always keeping the wisdom of God in control over our feelings because our belief is like shifting sands, which are not good at all to build upon.
It says in 2 Corinthians 10:4-5 The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.
Don’t Let Your Emotions Fool You, Use The Armor Of God!
Ephesians 6:10-17 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes.
For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world, and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.
Therefore put on the full armor of God so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.
Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace.
In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
