Pure Emotion Study

Emotions saturate Scripture. God is an emotional God – not in the same way we talk about an emotional woman or emotional person. But God is certainly aware of the runaway emotions we’re referring to when we put a negative spin on emotions. We can’t escape God’s presence. That means he sees and hears alongside us, including our (often messy) emotions. And if we let him, God will replace those untruthful messages we’ve learned about emotions along the journey of life with the truthful messages reflecting his character, will, and commands.

God didn’t mess up his design of you.

He created you in his image. He has a plan for your life. He even knew what mistakes you’d make throughout your life, and he still loves you and wants nothing more than to be in an ever-deepening relationship with you. He will pursue you – whether you’re not following him and need to make that decision or you’re following him marginally or you’re passionate about him. He designed you for more, and he will pursue you, tapping you on the shoulder, whispering in your ear, and knocking on the door of your heart so that your daily life – including your decisions, attitudes, and yes, emotions – is impacted in the purity of who he created you to be and the everyday messiness of living on earth.

If your emotions aren’t reflecting the character of God…well, you’re probably distorting something and need to get back on track. That’s what this journey is about. Growing closer to God, getting to know him better, and committing to reflecting him more and more on a daily basis.

    Thank you for being positive about emotions rather than dismissive and untrusting of them. Sometimes I think we lose sight that God created emotions.

      Thanks, Christine. Have you read Lysa Terkeurst’s new book on emotions called Unglued? Also, I released the Pure Emotion Bible study last year, which digs into this topic more deeply, exploring specific emotions such as anger, fear, joy, frustration, anxiety, and guilt. Just in case you’re interested. :-) Blessings!
