Emotions · Heart · Steady · Trust · Wonder

steadying emotions…

My emotions seem steadier… than they used to be…

Still present when it comes to desires… things I’ve been waiting for a long time…

But not so disappointed… stirred… when what is desired… is revealed to be still so far away…

I wonder what it means…

Do I care less…? or trust more…?

Are the mountains and rocky terrain of my heart… becoming less so…?

Every valley shall be lifted up, and every mountain and hill be made low; the uneven ground shall become level, and the rough places a plain.

Isaiah 40:4 ESV

This verse comes to mind as I consider my emotions… question their meaning…

What I hear Him say… I’m leveling them out… your heart becomes steadfast as you follow Me… trust Me more and more…

I’m surprised… by the unexpected meaning…

Always before… I viewed the mountains as difficulties being removed… rough roads leveled out… valleys lifted high… all about the circumstances of life…

But what I hear Him say… the circumstances will remain… but my spirit… heart… emotions… He steadies… smooths… when He is trusted…

For thus said the Lord God, “In returning and rest you shall be saved; in quietness and in trust shall be your strength.”

Isaiah 30:15 ESV

Steadying emotions… it’s what He does… as we rest in His sovereignty… trust in His love…

How are your emotions…? what do they reveal about your heart…? your trust in Him…?
