Like the body, the mind and emotions of a person can malfunction, overreact, or become stuck in unhealthy patterns. Emotions designed to assist you in assessing danger can instead produce debilitating and unwarranted anxiety. Emotions meant to equip you with proper responses to loss or difficulty can leave you trapped in a pit of despair.
But these emotional states do not need to determine your spiritual state. Who you are is more than the sum of your emotional responses. God offers true peace and a hope that never fails, a reality that goes beyond the battles of your mind and emotions.
