Why am I so overwrought? Why am I so disturbed? Why can’t I just hope in God? Despite all my emotions, I will believe and praise the One who saves me and is my life.Psalm 42:5 Voice
When I start looking at what’s in my heart, especially if I haven’t done it in awhile, I tend to become overwhelmed with the emotions that surface. The psalmist says he feels “disturbed,” which is how I often feel.
Yet, the psalmist offers a simple solution, despite everything, there is God. We can believe God will help us change even in the midst of discouragement, because faith isn’t an emotion – it is a choice.
How do you tend to handle overwhelming emotions? What can you choose to believe about God today?
