…God is greater than our feelings, and he knows everything (1 John 3:20; NLT).

We can’t avoid our feelings:
Anxiety, depression,
Sorrow, panic, rage –
And more.

So the first step towards
Not being overwhelmed by them
Is learning to accept
Their presence.

Next, we need to listen to our emotions,
Understand what they are telling us,
And make the necessary changes
In our lives.

Only then will difficult feelings
Start to fade,
Having helped us learn a little more
About ourselves.
