Don’t Trust Feelings

I have never liked the taste of alcohol, even when I drank. I drank for the feeling.

When I realised I had a drinking problem, it was destroying my life and would probably result in my dying, I drank for the feeling.

I had a discussion with someone just recently about the insanity of addiction’ and our disregard of consequences for the sake of the feeling.

The best definition I have ever heard of insanity is ‘Doing the same thing over and over expecting a different result.’

  • It’s time to stop ignoring the feeling and start concentrating on reality.

We were slaves; yet even as slaves, our God didn’t abandon us. Love God, listening obediently to Him, firmly embracing Him. He is life itself

It’s who you are, not what you say and do, that counts. Your true being brims over into true words and deeds.

Become the kind of person God can use to present any and every kind of gift to His guests for their blessing. Run away from infantile indulgence. Run after mature righteousness–faith, love, peace–joining those who are in honest and serious prayer before God. Refuse to get involved in inane discussions; they always end up in fights. God’s servant must not be argumentative, but a gentle listener and a teacher who keeps cool, working firmly but patiently with those who refuse to obey. You never know how or when God might sober them up with a change of heart and a turning to the truth, enabling them to escape the Devil’s trap, where they are caught and held captive, forced to run his errands.

Payer: Lord, help me not to be guided by feelings but to be guided by You and Your truths.
