Day 16: The Motions...

     He who has no rule over his own spirit is like a city that is broken down and without walls.
    ~Proverbs 25:28
    Then [Ezra] told them, Go your way, eat the fat, drink the sweet drink, and send portions to him for whom nothing is prepared; for this day is holy to our Lord. And be not grieved and depressed, for the joy of the Lord is your strength and stronghold. ~Nehemiah 8:10

    We've all gone through the motions. Sometimes is hard to feel like worshiping. One day you can be on fire and next you can only be filled with a spark. Sometimes the world around you seems to suck, when all you need to do is change your attitude. I see and hear way too many people saying that they are depressed... and what hurts me the most, is that a lot who I hear this from, are way too blessed to be going through this. Don't waste a day on a lousy feeling, embrace the day, you'll never get it back. Ask Jesus to show you His ways and nothing, but sheer joy will fill your heart. Watch this wonderful video by an awesome singer, who went through something pretty hard, yet embraced it. (You will have to pause my music player on the right side. The bottom middle button should do it.)

    Feelings are not evil but neither are they holy. They just "are." You don't have to be led and directed by them. The more you follow your feelings, the stronger they will become. Make the decision today to say "yes" to God and "no" to feelings. ~Joyce Meyer
