Well, our principal number for stop watching or taking in so much of the news, you know, when covid-19 started in the coronavirus has spread and we were on lockdown. Every minute, every second of the day. We were getting news about this news about that. All we were bombarded with news and then we were getting numbers of people that have died. What was going on in the hospitals and with the essential workers and oh my goodness. We were so awful planned. With the amount of information. We were getting on a minute-by-minute on a real-time basis. And so I knew that there was going to come a time. When we had some monster, we had to stop. We had to just
Be mindful of how much were taking in so much that even now as things have begin to resume, or get back to some level of normalcy. Still monitor your intake. We tend to become what we watch the most of what we listen to the most. So if you feel yourself with negative news, you will become negative. You become discouraged, you will become depressed and even fatigued. So, replace that with positive things schedule, daily connections with people that you love. Kamaiyah communicating, with your loved ones will encourage you, you can encourage them and it would give you a sense of positivity. When you hang up you will feel your emotional tank and you'll be able to listen to and parts.
Making other things that will come to disrupt or even put a damper on your day. So refill, your emotional come by connecting with people, you love.
Principle number 6, share your feelings, instead of suppressing them. Share your feelings, instead of suppressing them. I know that sharing emotions sometimes can be very vulnerable, and a lot of people just don't want to go there. We put up blocks. We try to guard our emotions, because we really do not want our emotions to be attacked. We don't want to put ourselves in Jeopardy, to be out there and then get our feelings are or emotions hurt. So, all negative ones like anxiety, and fear, and boredom, and frustration. In a climate like this, we tend to suppress my feelings are meant to be, felt not meant to be suppressed. They're meant to be, felt not suppressed feelings, are neither good.
Or bad. They are just feelings.
You know, the word of God even talks about different times. When I have only father, have Felix yet feelings of jealousy by feelings of being frustrated, feelings of anger when he was in the temple and they were doing things in the temple that, you know, was not what his intentions. Were you? No money, changing, it. Was going on. And then he got angry about that. But even our heavenly father shows of normalcy in feelings, and having emotion, God is patient, but he's also sometimes displaying some of his characters which involves emotions. So when you swallow or when you suppress your feelings, your stomach keeps score and let me say that again. When you suppress your emotions or your fee,
Your stomach keeps score. If you don't talk about it. You're going to take it out on your body.
You will act it out. You will find yourself, you know, wondering why is my back aching? Why is my neck aching? Why is my stomach aching? And that's because your emotions in your feelings are bottled up and it has to be Express somewhere. It has to be in a register somewhere and it registers in your body, taking a toll on your body. So don't suppress your feelings, you know, Express them.
And express inappropriately, another way that you can express your feelings as to confess them all when you confess and you get rid of them even their things in your life, but you don't need to keep. We going to go through our closets and we do spring cleaning. Are there times when we need to go through my feelings? And my emotions? Are we need to on a regular basis, do some spring cleaning with our feelings out in our emotions. We need to confess them to God, Galatians, chapter 6 and 2 says, I'm share. Share your feelings with others. Share your troubles with others. Who will you be surprised as you share those feelings emotions and troubles with you know, those that you can trust they might be able to relate because they might have some of those things are might happen in the future when they have to deal with some of those emotions and feelings.
You use your neighbor. Use someone you're close to. Let's utilize this principle in the Bible that tells us to Bear each other's bird. Share what you're feeling 1st, Corinthians chapter 1 and 8. Paul says that we were crushed and overwhelmed by great pressure. The burdens were so heavy. We wondered if we were going to make it through, you know, so again Eve back in the Bible days, there were times when there is Apostles and Prophets and teachers and preachers felt and I experienced the same things were going through and the word of God. It's puts it on display. Gives us an opportunity to read it, connect with it and know what to do with our emotions and feelings. So
The word of God to see, you can be healed, confess it, give it away, give it to God casted, you know, and leave it with him, so that he can handle what you can't handle. And you can experience the healing and the release that you need of, those are important and what motions that your body recognizes on a daily basis. If you want forgiveness, then you have to confess your faults to God, but if you want to be healed of them, you might share it with someone else.
This is the power of Celebrate Recovery. This is the power of support groups doing. During this covid-19 time. You need to be aware of on expressed grief in your life. Why? Because you have already experienced a number of losses, like missed opportunities, missed graduations, missed birth, birth of a child or grandchild. Some could have not been able to go to funerals, missed funeral because of covid-19.
There have been missed weddings, missed graduation, all kinds of life experiences that you've missed out on. And this will reflect itself in a form of grief and it's normal to grieve. It is normal to go through the process of the stages of grief. You need to grieve that and that's okay.
If it's how we move from transition to transition which determines our feelings with someone else. So I won't encourage you again. As we go through these three important principles. This is a very important time in your life. I don't want you to miss it. I want you to live a prosperous life of a successful life, a flourishing life.
