Making Peace with Your Emotions: Living Life to the Fullest by Anonymous“The LORD your God in your midst, The Mighty One, will save;
He will rejoice over you with gladness, He will quiet you with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing.” Zephaniah 3:17 (NKJV)
Are our emotions an enemy to be defeated, or a gift to be enjoyed?
Every one of us has been there—torn between conflicting emotions, crushed by grief, or totally overcome with joy. One moment we can be completely happy and the next we can be confused and sad. Are these emotions and feelings something we need to overcome, ignore, or just accept? Wouldn’t life be easier without all the tumultuous feelings we experience?
Throughout Scripture, we see God display many emotions—joy, anger, jealousy, grief. Could it be that we’re emotional beings because we have been made in the image of an emotional God?
Through this study, you will explore twelve Bible passages and characters that expressed raw emotion. You will feel more empowered to handle negative emotions in a healthy way, and you will have a deeper appreciation for emotions in general. You will have confidence that your emotions are not only good, but godly.

4 Bible Verses that Will Transform Your Life
King James Bible
From a biblical perspective, what does it mean to live simply and why does it matter? You might be surprised that the Bible has a lot to say about this. When we truly believe that we will be rewarded for every sacrifice we make in this lifetime, we will live differently. Rather than pursuing wealth or ease or glory —rather than building our own empire —we will readily fix our eyes on Jesus, and run the race marked out for us with singular focus and perseverance. In this list you will find Bible verses about simple living. Specifically, you will find Bible verses that:.
He wants us to live every day of our lives with a purpose. He wants you to find your purpose in life,forget your past, and face the present. All things are possible for one who believes. And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ. Philippians And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.
The Lord will keep you from all harm— he will watch over your life; the Lord will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore. - Matthew - Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day [is] the evil thereof.
What does the Bible say about? Sufficient for the day is its own trouble. Delight yourself in the Lord , and he will give you the desires of your heart. The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have life and have it abundantly. For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord , plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. You make known to me the path of life; in your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore.
What is an abundant life? Does it mean having incredible success and material possessions? While this might make you feel great for a while, we can have a much more meaningful, abundant life with Jesus Christ. One that will make us truly feel like we are living. Does Christ promise earthly riches?
