ARE YOUR FEELINGS CONTROLLING YOU?

“He that lives by feelings will be happy, today, and unhappy tomorrow–and if our salvation depended upon our feelings, we would be lost one day and saved another, for they are as fickle as the weather and go up and down like a barometer!”

— C. H. Spurgeon

“Our feelings are always seeking to control us, and unless we realize this, they will undoubtedly do this. …. Our danger is to submit ourselves to our feelings and to allow them to dictate to us, to govern and to master us and to control the whole of our lives. …. if we postulate certain particular feelings as being essential we may very well become victims of the devil and spend the whole of our life in unhappiness and ‘bound in shallows and in miseries’, though the whole time we are truly Christians.”

— D Martyn LLoyd-Jones
