Emotions are feelings on the inside, caused by the appearance of pain or pleasure.
It tends to move us in certain direction, which could result to personal danger.
But if our thoughts are ruled by the will of God and not by glamour and grandeur,
Then our thinking would be rightly aligned, and our lives will remain secure.
As Children of God, we cannot allow ourselves to be emotionally controlled,
It promotes a sense of powerlessness then we are overcome by evil.
Bad temper is a state of mind, which destroys our earthly vehicle,
While fear grips us viciously, shifting our focus, and makes us feeble.
Condemnation is a really bad fruit, which most people tend to produce,
And anger so often turns deeply within, leaving helpless victims with nothing to choose.
It induces depression in the minds of the weak, promoting a life of low self-esteem,
While the tongue of destruction, changes their demeanor, with its most powerful gleam.
The devil tries to tell us we are engulfed with emptiness,
Our personalities, he reminds us, will always be the same, and full of unworthiness.
This makes us believe, that we will forever be instrument of weakness.
But thank God for Jesus, who has translated us into His light of righteousness.
Through Him, we could have control over the circumstances of our lives.
So why are we coerced to plunge into nothingness, and its deep silence?
While the unhealthy attributes of failure and its digression,
Promotes trivial feelings of darkness, and subsequent destruction.
We should take time and permit God to get involved in our daily lives.
And not like our first parents, who exchanged their freedom for their demise.
Remember, having Jesus, means we have regained the authority,
That was retrieved at His resurrection, when he gave us back our liberty.
With this authority, we can govern our emotions, beyond all imagination.
For the ransom was paid, and we are no longer victims of death and eternal destruction.
Away with this tyrant, who thinks he can have us under his control.
And stand with firmness, with the knowledge that he cannot destroy our souls.
