In less than 3 days, my emotional state in a particular situation went up and down like a roller coaster. I went down the track straight to anger, back up the hill to hope, then back around a curve to discouragement, and then I was homeward bound and landed on excitement. Point: Feelings are an essential part of living. God gave them to us and they serve as a gauge to tell us when something is right or wrong. Therefore, separate the facts from the feelings in order to make wise decisions. I shudder to think where I would be today if I had acted out my anger. Good guess is I would not be the woman God created me to be.
