Each day brings with it the opportunities for us to choose our emotional responses.
How can we control our emotional responses?
We can engage in the following self-preparation:
Choose your interaction- Avoid responding to circumstances or people that may raise your blood pressure.
Shift your friendship circle-If you noticed that your friends or social circles make you feel inferior, seek God on guidance to whether or not you need to change your circle of friends. Remember some people are placed in your life for a season.
Change your thoughts-Become more conscious of what you are always thinking about. If the thoughts encourage sadness, depression, or anxiety then you need to used God’s word to pull down the stronghold of negative thoughts.
“And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your mind in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:7 NASB)
