What Happens When Emotions Lead

Emotions are a wonderful part of who we are.
However, emotions are not good leaders.
They should not be allowed to take control and lead.
Strong emotions, if allowed to lead:
demand their own way,
defy God’s will,
override judgment,
pay no heed to decorum,
care nothing about impact to others, and
willfully ignore the larger picture.
Strong emotions, when allowed to lead,
fight against every restraint keeping them from their desired goal.
Following emotions leads to harm or disaster.
Emotions simply cannot be allowed to lead.

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
And lean not on your own understanding;
In all your ways acknowledge Him,
And He shall direct your paths.”  (Proverbs 3:5-6)

“For this is the love of God,
that we keep His commandments.
And His commandments are not burdensome.”  (1 John 5:3)

You will find that His commandments are not burdensome when you quietly surrender to Him and implicitly obey His voice.
