My brain has learned that when I’m stressed, happy, sad, angry, mad, fearful, or anywhere in between… that when I eat something delicious in a large quantity, I am temporarily calmed.
To say God only has good in the future is a lie about who He is. We have a God who is all love and that kind of God won’t let you suffer today without redeeming it in some way. The question is if you will notice it and be grateful for it.
My voice cracked as I said it and tears began to stream down my face. It was 5:30 in the morning on the day we were leaving to move to California.
For me, oftentimes my emotions are expressed through tears. Once I identify the emotion, then I can feel it, surrender it to God, and make a choice of how to deal with it.
