My Feelings Are Not God...

Friday's Thought: 

"My feelings are not God. God is God. 

My feelings do not define truth. God’s word defines truth. My feelings are echoes and responses to what my mind perceives. And sometimes - many times - my feelings are out of sync with the truth. 

When that happens - and it happens every day in some measure - I try not to bend the truth to justify my imperfect feelings, but rather, I plead with God: Purify my perceptions of your truth and transform my feelings so that they are in sync with the truth."

  1. Wow... What book is this from, please?

    1. It's from John Piper's book called 'Finally Alive.' I haven't read it yet but looking forward to soon. My daughter shared the quote with me. : )


Feel free to leave your own thoughts in the comments. I try to respond to all of them by the end of the week. : )
