Our emotions can shake our hearts up and down like a roller coaster, especially in times of stress. We may start to feel underappreciated, misunderstood, and unloved. Hurts that have smashed us may reappear, threatening our fragile sensibilities.

We may let fears decimate who we are, who we want to be. Uncertainties may push us further down emotional tunnels of negativity where we can’t see our real ‘me.’

Or, we can take a moment to breathe in, breathe out. To listen to the still small voice of God within, the voice Who calls us: BELOVED OF GOD.

“Our emotional lives move up and down constantly. It seems that they happen to us rather than being created by us. As we feel our emotions shift we must connect our spirit with the Spirit of God and remind ourselves that what we feel is not who we are. We are and remain, whatever our moods, God’s beloved children.” Henri Nouwen

grace, peace & Belovedness

    Feelings are fleeting. What we need to hang onto — especially during these challenging times — is the knowledge that God loves us and has everything under control, whether we see it or not!
