Overcome by Emotions

To be overcome by our emotions isn't necessarily a good thing, you know? This morning I was talking to a Bible School student who was confessing that he is struggling with just not "feeling it". He doesn't want to pray, he doesn't want to press in, he feels tired, discouraged, depressed, and sad. I was reminded of David who had to speak to his own soul, "Bless the Lord, O my Soul!" It's tough sometimes, you know? We want to always be shiny happy Christians, but we aren't always that way. My counsel to him? Go back to what you know to be the truth and plant your feet on that. Our emotions will lie to us, but the truth will stand forever.
