Emotions: A Blessing and a Curse

A Blessing

Isn’t it nice to feel appreciated, to be loved?

A Curse

But the pain of losing a loved one is almost unbearable, it aches inside of your soul, clouds your mind, and casts a cloud over your countenance.

I looked inside of my own pain this morning and realized that what we experience is but one Polaroid Picture in the billions and billions of pictures in the mind of God.

Thus, I realize how I have it much easier than Him. So, I move to change my perspective while wiping away my tears.

Better to have loved, then lost, than to never have loved at all? That’s debatable, depending on which side of the emotional equation you are standing on.

Life is like a circle, with ups and downs. When you are standing on the down side, it hurts. Remember: “This, too, shall pass.”

May God bless you and comfort you.
