This Week in the Rhema "Christian Yoga" Weekly...
These days, wherever you go and whatever you watch, you often see a strong message - follow your heart. Following your heart means following what you feel is best - following your emotions.
While emotions are powerful, valuable tools, they are not meant to dictate our decisions and beliefs.
Emotions are excellent tools for telling us when something seems off or wrong in our soul. Perhaps we feel mistreated, or we feel a call to protect someone or something. We may feel unheard, or more.
But what is important is what we DO with these emotions.
If we act immediately on our feelings, we will react, not respond. Reacting is what you do when your hand touches a hot pot - it's instant. Going through life this way is not living a full life, it is living a life of reactions without thought. What's worse, our reactions are not always right, even if they are often well-intentioned.
Responding is what we can do after we feel an emotion and try to understand it, try to bring it under God's perspective, and move out of a place of hope, faith and love.
Living a full life means living a life of responding to your emotions, not reacting to them.
Here at Rhema, we use Christian Yoga to cultivate a lifestyle of responding out of love. The more we worship and grow with God, the easier this becomes. That is what Rhema is all about, connection to God and healthier living here on earth~
