Today I’m going to share a lovely quote about feelings and Truth.
My feelings are not God. God is God. My feelings do not define Truth. God’s Word defines Truth. My feelings are echoes and responses to what my mind perceives. And sometimes–many times–my feelings are out of sync with the Truth. When that happens– and it happens every day in some measure– I try not to bend the Truth to justify my imperfect feelings, but rather, I plead with God: Purify my perceptions of Your Truth and transform my feelings so that they are in sync with the Truth.
Isn’t that beautiful? As a teenage girl, so often I am tempted to let my feelings or emotions or perceptions define my reality. But what I need to be focusing on is Truth. And how I focus on Truth is by reading the Word, because His Word is Truth.
I hope this is a helpful reminder to you today. Until next week…
