Episode 114 - A Word on Feelings

This week on the podcast, I offer a little reflection on feelings. Sometimes it’s hard to comprehend that God actually cares about our emotions. We may have been discipled into a tradition or church culture where we learned God expects us to be happy all the time or he only cares about our circumstances not how we’re affected by them; but God cares deeply about how we feel. The Psalms provide example after example of how the Lord hears the cries of his children and addresses them. Jesus expressed emotions without regret in his life on the earth! Like the loving parent and friend he is, God sees, hears, and cares about our fears, our worries, and our joy.

Oh, and there’s a mastiff story 😉
