How to Control Your Emotions Week 5 Blog Link-up Party

This week we close our book study of How to Control Your Emotions So They Don't Control You (a mom's guide to overcoming). We finish with Chapter 5 "What Happens When We Blow It" and the Appendix: Scriptures to Help Fight Off the Lies. Thank you so much for taking this journey with me!
In this chapter, we look again to David who is known as a man "after God's own heart" (Acts 13:22). David pursued God; and yes, he did blow it at times like we all do, but he didn't let those failures stop him from continuing to run hard after God. That's what we must continue to do as well during our times of failure in overcoming our emotions.


I've Blown It...Now What?

Yes, we all will have not-so-great moments of failing to overcome our emotions. We must not allow these times of failure to prevent us from continuing to run toward God's best for us and our emotions.

I know I must repent when I mess up and let my emotions take me over the edge. If it involves one of my children, my husband, other family member or a friend, I must go to that person and ask for their forgiveness. I must bow before God and ask for His forgiveness knowing that He will be faithful to forgive. I must continue to keep asking God to give me the victory over my emotions. I must hold on to the victories He does give me as a sweet taste of what can be in a heart that is running hard after His best.

Armed with Scripture!

I love the 25 Scripture verses that Brooke gives us in the Appendix: Scriptures to Help Fight Off the Lies. There is even a link included to the printable of these verses so we can print them and post them in a prominent place in our homes or even make multiple copies to carry in our Bibles or purses. These verses will be so beneficial to us as we learn how to process our emotions with the "Feel, Know, Do" method we are now armed with.

My Prayers Are With You!

Here's my something special I mentioned on Monday that I want to leave you with: it's the song "Overcomer" by Mandisa. Every time I have heard this song on the radio during these past five weeks, I have thought of each one of you who have taken this journey with me. I pray that God will give you all sweet victories as you surrender your emotions with the "Feel, Know, Do" method Brooke has shown us in How to Overcome Your Emotions So They Don't Control You (a mom's guide to overcoming). Turn it up loud and know that I'm rockin' out with you! lol

We are Overcomers,
