Master your Emotions by being GOD-centered.




I attended church last week, and this is the topic that our Pastor was discussing. I being a Christian at young age, still suffers in controlling my emotions especially when I got involve in some love issues, it’s hard to decide what you’re going to do if you’re just going to follow what your hear says, or what your mind says.. It’s just hard for me to handle it very well, now I knew the reason behind these difficulties in my emotions it is because God is not the center of my emotions. So with this message, I learned how to control or master my emotions by being God-centered. With God, we can be stronger than before, we can learn how to put our faith in Him because He will be beside us whenever we need Him. I hope this message will also help you for better.

In this message there are the sub-topics that will help you understand it more.

• Emotion will lead to action - Meaning, waiting somehow leads to a good thing. Now, people were not willing to wait. They want to get something as soon as they think of it. And by hurrying something, you might just get something that is just a replacement to what you want because this not really meant for you. You’ll just get unsatisfied.
• Emotional Intelligence – Recognize one’s moods, feelings, and impulses and to process them into right thinking and action. Give space, let them think, let them stand with a decision. But you should take place, when they’re choosing the wrong path. Because deciding something whenever you’re in bad mood won’t help at all.



If you’re EXPECTATION is TOO HIGH. When you’re already in REALITY you just might get DISSAPOINTED from what you expected.

“Being IN LOVE is good, but being in love for the WRONG person is NOT good.” With positive emotion and negative emotion you’re blinded. So you better deal with a relationship, when you already consider the things that will satisfy your emotions.

There are THREE KINDS of PEOPLE.
1. NATURAL CHRISTIAN– People who treats emotion as their master.
2. CARNAL CHRISTIAN – People who are struggling with their emotion.
3. GOD-CENTERED or SPIRITUAL CHRISTIAN – People who love mastering their emotions.

“If someone says don’t or NO, just do it. Be contented of what you have.” – Emotions are good but it may be disappointing.

“It was for FREEDOM that Christ set us free.” – Not because God is forgiving you will do the same sin over and over again.

“It is not possible for a Christian to be mature but immature in emotion.” – In order to be called that you’re finally a matured person, you should improve your emotions. Don’t let your physical be mature yet your emotion is still not settled.

Being GOD-CENTERED.

We need to PAUSE --> PRAY --> PROCESS IT --> and PRAISE GOD.
Therefore, we the people on earth should focused praising God, letting Him be in us and spread His mighty words.

I may not share the whole message that we discussed in our church that day, but I hope you understand it the way I understood it. I may be a Christian, but saying you’re a Born Again is a big difference. So now, I can say that I am a follower of Jesus. I really want to share the messages/topics in our church, even we don’t know each other personally, and I still hope that I can share the gospel of God through this blog post.

May God always be in us and let us focus in His words, don’t let evil invades your learning about what the Bible says especially our Almighty God..
