Emotional Growth!

One area I have grown tremendously in is the area involving my emotions. My emotions use to rule my life. If a circumstance of life emotionally wounded me, I would allow it to ruin my day, week, month, year and so on. Not anymore!!! A long time ago I got my first ticket. This caused so many emotions. You know what I did? I literally canceled my entire week. I couldn’t move past the emotions of receiving a ticket that I felt I had to cancel everything on my schedule that week just to cope. Seems really silly now! I get that there are worse things in life then a ticket. Trust me I get it!!! I’m just saying I no longer cancel life when they rain starts to pour. If it’s sprinkling I keep going. If it’s pouring I keep going. I’m not in anyway saying it’s wrong to shut down and cancel everything. There are times when this is healthy. A few years ago I made the decision to continue seeking joy while walking through a storm. Jesus is my joy. Serving Him brings me joy. His love for me brings me joy. Knowing He has a plan that is good for me always brings me joy. No one and no storm can ever take that joy found in Jesus away. I stopped living miserably along time ago. I get to be free from emotional bondage because Jesus is my victory.
I still cry. I still get hurt. I still feel wounded at times but the difference is those feelings don’t dictate my life.
I don’t have time to let my emotions rule me. Jesus has done too much good for me to be ruled by a storm. I have too many victories to share with the world to be weighed down by an in coming storm. In any storm I face, I will keep trucking along until the sun shines again.
I don’t raise my hands in worship to Jesus because my life is rainbows and unicorns and sunshine. I raise them because regardless of the circumstances around me I serve a big God and He is and will always be good.

Howdy! I am passionate about sharing simple God lessons through everyday real life events in my daily life. I’ve been writing since I was 11. What started off as a way to escape or cope with the uncertainty of life, has turned into a calling. I do believe that God has called me to share what He has placed on my heart with all of you! I recently published a children’s book The Chicks Save Easter. You can find it on amazon. https://www.amazon.com/Chicks-Save-Easter-Helena-Rayos/dp/B086Y6K19M I pray God finds you where you are and you allow Him to take you where He has called you to love and serve Him.
