Positive emotions are truly a gift. They have the power to lift us up and fill our hearts with joy, serving as beacons of light in even the darkest of moments. But as life throws curveballs our way, it’s important to remember that our minds need to lead the charge. Think of your mind like the engine of a train, tirelessly powering you forward towards success and happiness. Your emotions, on the other hand, are like the caboose – they follow behind you because of your actions. It’s crucial that we maintain this order in our lives; otherwise, we risk getting derailed by negative thoughts or feelings that attempt to cloud our path.

Don’t let discouragement seep into your being when those positive emotions ebb and flow like waves in the ocean – just keep chugging along! Remember that God has plans for each one of us; He intricately designed us with purpose. In seeking His will amidst life’s trials and tribulations, we can find peace knowing that even during tough times, there is a greater plan at work. So hold on tight to hope and keep moving forward with positivity etched deeply within your heart – who knows where it could take you? Let those positive emotions propel you towards greatness and inspire others along the way. Embrace them fully but remember their place in relation to your mind – allow them to enhance your journey rather than dictate it entirely. In this grand adventure called life, positive emotions serve as reminders that joy does exist. ~ Bill Greguska

Positive Emotions Makes Us Feel Good!

Ask God to direct your thinking to have positive emotions that will help you and others in your life!

Many people believe that “positive emotions” make them feel good, but those feelings are usually temporary. Positive emotions are emotions that have good results. Fleshly passions produce actions that are not always positive. Often they lead to temptation and sin. Where do your emotions come from? Are they generated from society, your flesh, money, power, or position, or are they from God, the maker of heaven and earth?

Take time to figure out whether or not your so-called “positive emotions” are positive or not. Not to confuse the fruit of the Spirit with emotions, although Galatians 5:22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, all bear some “positive emotions” that come forth from them.








What Does H.A.L.T. Stands For?

Next time you feel your emotions taking a wrong turn, think about the word H.A.L.T. = Hungry, Angry, Lonely, Tired. If you are one of these feelings, pray and take care of them immediately to prevent destructive emotions from overpowering you! Jesus Christ had emotions since he was entirely man and fully God. The shortest scripture in the Bible refers to the deep sadness and pain that Jesus experienced in John 11:35. Jesus wept. Positive emotions are emotions that have good results. Fleshly feelings produce actions that are not always positive. Often they lead to temptation and sin.

It would be fair to say that we all gravitate to wanting to have happy emotions. To do so, a person must find peace in their heart. This type of order would start with a relationship with God. It would help if you practiced discernment to determine whether or not emotions are genuinely positive by seeing the fruit that comes from them. I have learned that all my emotions are my responsibility to keep in check, and I also learned that what feels right is not always good for us. That is why we need God to help direct us. ~ Bill Greguska
