we think ANY emotion will last forever while it is with us. great joy, great depression. no. as the bible says, 'this, too, shall pass,' and every emotion passes. EVERY emotion. the deepest sorry. the most intense joy. they come. they go. and they visit again another time.
Today I'll be a woman who doesn't blurt out just exactly what my emotions want me to. I'm not dictated by them. Even when it feels better to say what's on my mind and give the 'what for,' I have the ability to control my temper, my words, and my actions. I'm controlled by the power of the Lord. And through Him, I'll respond with peace, grace and quietness.
