Pressing into Thin Places: Encouraging the Heart toward God
There are times when we feel spiritually flat. We want to feel different. We want to feel full of praise. We want to feel joyful but we are spiritually dry like parched, cracked ground. Sometimes we can identify a challenge, a trial, or a burden that is making us feel a certain way.
But other times we can’t put our finger on the root cause of our discouragement. There are times when we are nagged by “feelings.” But be assured that God knows us, and His love for us does not depend on our “spirituality” or our performance. We also should rest in the fact that our feelings are fickle. We all have ups and downs.
We are emotional beings. This is part of life. But can we do anything to get out of a funk? Can we dial up different thoughts? Can we change our feelings? Many times, we can.
