Every day of life can seem like we’re trapped on a roller coaster of highs and lows, if everything we do is based off our emotions. A disagreement with a brother or sister breaks out and anger begins to brew. We don’t get the position on the team or in the play we were hoping for and disappointment, even sadness can begin to form. Something overwhelming that we experience leads to future fear and anxiety. But then a moment of happiness breaks through as our crush tries to speak to us or even hold our hand. Our emotions can just be…well… A LOT TO HANDLE!
The good news is that God created our emotions. And God does things on purpose. He placed joy, anger, fear, disgust, and sadness inside of us for a reason. This is going to be amazing week of making new friends, having life changing experiences, and taking next steps in our faith journey by learning to understand and even use our emotions to grow God’s Kingdom!
