Jimmy Stewart, the well loved movie star, adivsed his twin daughters (Judy and Kelly) before leaving for college,
“Remember this, be kind to everyone.”
The Stewart twins grew up in a loving and happy environment which probably made it relatively easy to extend kindness to everyone.
However, it’s difficult to be kind to others when inwardly disconnected, struggling, or angry.
However, sometimes anger disguises itself. Don’t let it fool you.
As it twists inward and latches onto festering lies, it can slide on a bridge to depression.
But it’s not a good bridge.
You want, and need, a bridge that can lead you to a better place.
As Christians, we often get confused about anger.
Do you ever think, “I shouldn’t be angry. That’s not how a Christian acts.” . . . ?

Your common daily emotions are
God’s continuous invitations

2. You’ll want to be aware of the following

negative emotions and memories that pull you
down, but you do want to be enough aware of
your emotions to receive the information they have
Your emotions are God-given messages loaded with timely information. Learning to think about your negative emotion, identifying the lie that has caused it, and then offering that to the Lord for His truth, will give you a bridge to a brighter future.
