Emotions(Part 2)


“Those who are in the flesh cannot please God” Romans 8:8

Flesh is everything that has to do with senses, feelings and emotions. God is not pleased with feelings and emotions. One feeling that God really condemns in the bible is fear. How many times does God say in the bible “Do not fear”? From Genesis to Revelation God continues to repeat the same thing. Do not fear. Do not worry. Be anxious for nothing.

Emotions


Now we are going to start a subject that we have all been waiting for. We are talking about emotions ladies. What are they? Where do they come from? And how can we keep them under control. So if you say you have been an emotional rack and just can’t seem to have control, keep reading.

The mind and behaviour

Whoever said men don't have emotions was mistaken. Men also struggle with emotional issues. Perhaps not as much as women do. I have  known cases of men who have behavioral problems because of problems they have had in their previous relationships with mothers or even with wives. Men do feel insecure especially when they feel they don't have control. Innocent people needn't suffer for our own frustrations. It is very important to look closely at how our mind affects our behavior. Remember that God is the only one who can give us a new mind. He can wash away all false beliefs and give us a new way of thinking. In our next posts, we will speak more about emotions and the mind. Did you read our short story 'Taking Charge'?

Taking Charge


Dennis swung his leather chair playfully as he inspected his new office. He was now MD of this company. His office occupied almost the whole top floor of the building. The glass screens gave the view of the Johannesburg city with the Hillbrow and the Vodacom Towers in full view. This was a dream come true. He had worked hard to be here. No one could tell him otherwise. Not even those backstabbers who had filed a complaint against him to the board, accusing him of prejudice. He scrolled the email again calling him to a hearing in a week’s time. He had a pretty good idea who was behind this. It was pure jealousy because of his election as MD.

Crossroads (Chapter 12)

Life wasn’t easy  for Thando in her new home. Kate was nice to her. She always encouraged her to trust in God. ‘Things will get better’ she would say. Kate was a nice person. She was positive and always pushed everybody to look to God and pray about everything. Thando admired her for the strength she had to uplift others despite her own life falling apart. Kenneth was becoming wilder by the day. He would disappear for days, sometimes weeks. And when he did show up he was violent and abusive.

Renewal of the Mind



Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of the mind. Romans 12:2

When you read this verse you may take it very lightly. But have you ever stopped to think what renewing the mind really means. And why do we really need a renewal of the mind? In scientific terms can you define what the mind is and what consists of the mind?
Among other things the mind consists of these three things; 1. Conscious mind, 2. Subconscious mind, 3. Unconscious mind.

Crossroads (Review)

 
I know you have been waiting eagerly for the continuation of this story. But as I said I am writing the story as I go. In a way I am just like you as I don't know what will happen next.( kkkk). But all I can tell you is that there is a lot of sadness in this story. But many lessons to be learned. Meet Kate for an example. Kate is this new character in our story. She is a married woman with problems of her own. But she believes God has instructed her to help this girl. She made a big mistake once in her life and she is now paying the price. But she continues to pray for God to help her. Follow us next time as Thando gets settled in her new home. Do you think something can go wrong?
