How Do You Feel About Your Feelings?Feelings and emotions!

Please contact us if you have questions or comments or want encouragement.

We all have feelings, yet sometimes we do not guard our hearts because feelings can overwhelm us at times. Do you want to get more control over your feelings and emotions? Also, do you want to deal with others’ disturbing emotions without hurting them?

I appreciate what former head basketball coach John Wooden from UCLA basketball said: “Consider the rights of others before your feelings and the feelings of others before your rights.” God’s word has the answer to all of our questions about life and godliness.  Our intellect is the train, and our feelings are the caboose, make sure you keep those two in the correct order. ~ Bill Greguska

Proverbs 29:11 Fools give full vent to their rage, but the wise bring calm in the end. 





How Do Feelings And Emotions Work?


Are Your Feelings And Emotions Are Controlling You?

Your feelings and emotions can be very intense if you allow yourself to be controlled by them!

1. Refrain From Comparing Yourself To Others.

When you compare yourself to others, it is like comparing your insides to someone else’s outward appearance, which in most cases, you will end up on the short end of the stick. Stay in your lane, and be sure you are doing your best. Appreciate the person God created you to be with your strengths and weaknesses.









2. Resist Entertaining Regrets of The Past.

Like my brother, Tom taught me years ago that if I did all I could do to make the situation the best I could, then turn the page and refuse to remain enslaved in remorse or bitterness. You can try to learn from the situation, then move on. You’ll be kept a prisoner in the memories if you don’t. Ask God to help you with letting the situation go.


3. Reflect On Negative Comments Others Say To You.

Others say that before you reject negative comments, be sure they are untruthful. Dismissing something true can be harmful and cause more problems. So be sure that what the critics are saying is not valid. If what they say has any truth, reflect on the fact, and apply them to your life to become a better person.


4. Redirect Unnecessary Drama Into Your Life.

People are people, and there will always be some drama in life. You want to avoid relationships if your efforts are not appreciated.

Also, the other person becomes less supportive and uplifting instead of less toxic. I am not saying to dump them off at the curb, but I am speaking to guard your heart and not allow them to drag you down emotionally, mentally, physically, or spiritually. Sometimes we need to put others on the back burner for a while. People have their issues, but sometimes their problems can be too overwhelming, and they might need spiritual or professional help.


5. Realize True Happiness Comes From God.

It doesn’t matter how much money you have or do not have in the bank or what title you may have in the world. External accomplishments can be excellent, but you will never find true happiness if you allow your happiness to depend upon external affirmation. True happiness begins with a good relationship with Jesus Christ and knowing His will for your life and how to accomplish it.



Do Our Feelings Sometimes Need Healing? 

Feelings can be excellent, devastating, or somewhere in between. Feelings and emotions can be positive, or they can be overwhelming. Some people have thin skin, making it hard to control their feelings or emotions. We need to be able to handle our feelings, good or bad. Learn about your feelings! Learn the importance of feelings. But when walking close to God, He will prompt us to do what is right. God will keep us from harm and be a blessing rather than a curse. If you have questions that need answering, check out Got Questions to help you align your feelings and emotions with God’s wisdom and plan for you and your life.

Often Satan gets into our minds to destroy us in different ways. The thing is to guard your heart and seek the truth of God’s word. 

  • For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love, and self-discipline 2 Timothy 1:7.  
  • For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11

Feeling And Emotions Being Like A Train Analogy?

Feelings are like the caboose, and wisdom is like the engine. People often get the two mixed up, allowing their emotions to run the train (their life) instead of God’s wisdom that God has given us in his word. ~ Bill Greguska.
