QUESTION:
What must I do when I feel....
scared, brave, lonely, confused, proud, loved, cheated,miserable, furious, stupid, nervous, sad, unloved, ignored, angry, afraid, excited, bored, special, happy, smart, empty, disgusted, jealous, shamed, embarrassed, frustrated, disappointed, guilty or worried?




ANSWER:

PRAY, whether you are MAD, SAD,GLAD or aFRAiD!

In other words, express yourself to GOD in all circumstances. Don't sweep your feelings under the carpet and pretend as if nothing is going on inside of you. The last thing you want to do is put on a show. GOD is not pleased with pious poses, but he accepts genuine prayers. Your outward acts can fool people, but not GOD (1 Samuel 16:7).

So, identify, acknowledge and address your feelings to GOD - with no pretentiousness. And, receive what GOD is so ready to give-His mercy and grace to help you in your time of need (Hebrews 4:14-16).
