Emotions · Joy · Pressed · Spirit · Spiritual Maturity

pressed joy…

Conflicting emotions stir in flesh and spirit…

The flesh feeling pressed… almost to the point of being overwhelmed… at the things which need to happen for Him in the next twelve hours…

Yet… as I contemplate what needs to be done… feel the pressing… my spirit is joy-full…!

And odd combination…

What would’ve caused anxiety… doubt… fear of failing… a year ago… (being pressed by all the to dos…) is no longer there…

It seems my spirit… now trusts the Spirit… and from pressed flesh… comes joy…!

Very odd combination of emotions… in this body of flesh… living according to the Spirit…

But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us. We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed.

2Corinthians 4:7-9 NIV

Instead… there is… joy…!

Weird…
