Get A Grip

Emotions are a beautiful thing.  Emotions are a terrible thing.  I feel good, no bad, no good, no bad. Ahhhh!

It is no wonder that so many prescription drugs are prescribed to people just so they can, "Get a grip"?

Now I have nothing against medical intervention.  Believe me, I can understand the need for it.  But all drugs do is shut emotions off.  You feel better, but then again, you don't feel.

1 Peter 5:7  casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you.
Now someone is probably shouting at me.  "Easier said than done!"  Maybe, but you've got to do it.  What's your other choice?

If your emotions are getting the best of you, here are a few things you probably need to do.

Place your faith in Christ.  I'm not saying that you don't believe in Him, but chances are you've not released this problem(s) to Him.

Cast.  Peter was a fisherman.  Casting nets was something that he understood.  Throw your worries at Christ as hard as you can and as far as possible.  What's the point here?  Surrender your control and trust Him.

Believe that He cares.  As long as you carry the worry you are declaring, "God doesn't love me."  He cares for you and wants to intercede in your life.  The key here is to follow His will instead of trying to get Him to bless your mess.

PRAY:  Dear Jesus, here's my stuff.  I can't deal with it anymore.  Teach me what to do.  AMEN
