EMOTIONAL WELLNESS: MATTERS OF THE HEART By J. Kevin Johnson
Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life. `~ Proverbs 4:23 KJV Bible
There's no doubt about it, we're emotional creatures. Our emotions, our hearts, or our feelings are the forces that drive us to do some of the most magnificent of things as well as some of the most horrendous acts. There's nothing like experiencing the heat of passion. Whether it be for a relationship, hobby, or activity, when the heat of passion is felt, the most beautiful creations can be realized. Transversely, when the white hot heat of wrath has been struck, look out, because something, or someone may be in the path of destruction.
Emotional wellness is vital to a holistic biblical wellness, and The Creator wants us to experience the rainbow range of emotions from a purity that ensures that we live a vibrant, abundant, and colorful life. We're not to let our emotions rule us, but we are to wield discipline over our emotions as we experience the various ranges of the emotional spectrum. Our Heavenly Father is an emotional being, and He wants you to experience an emotional life in holistic wellness.
