Your emotions do not trump reality. (Eric Metaxas, radio host)
“Tell him/her how you feel.” “Follow your heart.” Such advice is often offered when difficult life situations pit emotions against life’s realities. Sometimes we look back on those emotional decisions and regret that we responded so quickly. Too often, emotions, rather than reason, drive the train. Reason, followed by faith in truth, will allow for healthy emotions.
Faith shows the reality of what we hope for; it is the evidence of things we cannot see. (Hebrews 11:1)
