When feelings and faith are in conflict

“My soul is overwhelmed with sorrow to point of death” Mark 14:34

Ever hear words: “You shouldn’t feel that way. If you trusted God more you wouldn’t be emotionally down and feel like quitting. A good dose of faith and prayer is what you need! When the bottom falls out of your world well-meaning friends think such words ought to pick you up instantly. But often they don’t. Remember Job’s friends? So, what should we do when we experience these troubling, anxious, discouraging feelings? We should remember that feelings are neither right nor wrong. Having them does not make you unspiritual and not having them does not make you spiritual. They are just human logo_07_06_2011emotions we all have. No one experienced greater emotional pain than Jesus: “My soul is overwhelmed with sorrow to the point of death”. Jesus felt like he was going to die on the spot. Such deep feelings threatened His very life, yet He didn’t hide or deny His feelings, or condemn Himself for having them. Jesus openly acknowledged His feelings, processing them in a healthy way. In the throes of anguish, He prayed twice, “Father please take this suffering away from me” (Mark 14:36). The Father didn’t scold or rebuke His plea to avoid His circumstances or His feelings, and He will not scold or rebuke you either. We must also understand that feeling do not dictate your options or invalidate your choices. You can have bad feelings and still make good choices. Crushed with grief, Jesus said, “Yet I want your will, not mine” (Mark 14:36) Choose God’s will regardless of your feelings an He will strengthen you to handle the tough  times.
