The Lie of Feelings

A big lesson I've been learning is that feelings are often misleading and downright untrue.

When I look back through my journal a lot of my entries start with confessing to God how I feel. Me pouring out to Him how I feel distant, dry, lonely, like a failure, unworthy, etc.

And then the next line in my journal is usually His soothing words to me that my feelings are not true, they are not reality, they are lies!

So friends, I want to encourage you with that today... that whatever you are feeling is just that, FEELINGS. Let's not live in our feelings or accept them as reality but let's live in the truth that we are one with God, that He is present, that we are righteous, and that we are loved.
