Our Fickle Emotions


When I was prosperous, I said,
“Nothing can stop me now!”
Your favor, O Lord, made me as secure as a mountain.
    Then you turned away from me, and I was shattered.
Psalm 30:6-7

These two verses summarize David’s emotional roller coaster.

When life runs smoothly, I think I’m unstoppable. Then one little thing breaks, and I think my world is over.

Throughout the day, my moods get flung all over the universe. On the big graph, my daily emotional swings are only little blips.

We love David because he gave himself permission to ride all his emotions.

Why not?

Let the emotions come and go.
