The Love I Feel For You Endlessly
We all have different feelings for people and various reasons why we feel that way about them. You might like someone because they are funny or because they are smart or because they are pretty. The reasons can be endless, but it is important to remember that if you like someone, it’s okay to feel that way about them as long as it doesn’t hurt anyone else.
So, why do you say the love I feel for you endlessly is great? I have some questions for you that I want you to answer.
Why Do You Have Feelings For Someone?
Do you find yourself asking this question often? If the answer is yes, then you are not alone. This is a question that many people ask themselves every day. It’s one question that has no simple answer because everyone’s feelings are different.
You have feelings for someone because they make you feel good. You like the way they look, their voice, and the way they carry themselves. You like what they say and how they say it.
You like how they treat other people and how kind and generous they are. You like the person that they are inside and out. However, is it because of their physical appearance? Or is it because of the way they treat you?
Love is something that everyone wants in their life, but not everyone knows how to go about getting it or even what love means. There are so many types of love out there that it can sometimes be hard to figure out exactly which one you are feeling towards someone else at any given time.
For example, when your parents tell you they love you, do they mean the same thing as your best friend says she loves you? Or does it mean something entirely?
The Love I Feel For You Endlessly
When we fall in love with someone, we connect to them based on who they are. We may not even be able to explain why we feel this way about them, but it doesn’t matter because we just do!
In this post, I will talk about why you feel that way and how you should respond to emotional feelings as a Christian. I will also be sharing some tips on managing emotions below. Stay through to this page as I take you through this journey.
Firstly, you need to recognise how you feel. Love is a wonderful thing but can make you feel many heady emotions. Sometimes you’re torn over your feelings. There are different reasons why you feel the way you do.
It’s very important to get to know yourself first. Doing this might save you a lot of heartache and confusion later. Specifically, this will help you better recognise your feelings for someone.
Secondly, learning how to manage your emotions can be a tough gig. We all face moments that reach the soft spots of our souls. We may not be able to control emotions, but we can choose to control our responses.
Emotions may seem unmanageable, but they’re not. We have a choice. We can choose to manage emotions rather than manage the damage done by the loss of control.
What Are Emotions?
Feelings are the outcome of our ideas and deeds, which are called emotions. We communicate our thoughts, desires, views, beliefs, and attitudes through our emotions. In other words, our perspective of life is manifested through our emotions.
We bear God’s likeness in our creation. The Bible reveals that God is capable of feeling wrath, sadness, and anger. We also go through a spectrum of emotions. Without emotion, we would resemble a group of walking robots.
Emotions are incredibly genuine and powerful. Emotions have such power that they can even impact our physical health. Ulcers can be caused by worry and lead to high blood pressure and stress. Our emotions may cause migraines, lack of sleep, and weight changes.
How Should A Christain Respond To Emotional Feelings?
Our emotions are under our control. Having self-control is a genetic trait. When we place our faith in Christ, He seals us with the Holy Spirit, who endows us with self-control.
Emotions have a far deeper motivation than the emotion itself. Our thoughts, desires, views, beliefs, and attitudes influence our emotions. Our hearts are the source of our thoughts, desires, views, beliefs, and attitudes.
Proverbs 4 vs 23 ‘Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.’
Matthew 6 vs 21 ‘For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.’
Tips For Managing Your Emotions
Usually, telling yourself to stop feeling a certain way won’t help. It will only be a temporary solution, even if you manage it by suppressing your emotions or finding something else to do. The emotions you’re attempting to suppress will return. Getting to the “heart” of the situation is significantly more effective for a long-lasting change. Whether or not we are aware of it, we have control over what transpires between stimuli and response.
So how do we handle our feelings? How do we fix them when they are broken? How do we keep our emotions from taking control of our lives?
God did not leave us in charge of our feelings. He didn’t say, “I’m going to give you this tangle of conflicting emotions. I’m hoping you can solve them on your own. No, God has provided us with everything we require to learn how to control our emotions and honour him through them in his Word.
How Can I Control My Emotions?
- Start with God
Instead of starting with God regarding our emotions, we frequently start with how we feel, want to feel, or want others to feel. We are more likely to turn inside with our emotions than outside toward God because sin pervades our emotions.
We feel most strongly about the things we desire, fear, treasure, and detest. For our selfish enjoyment, we look for feelings. God gave us the ability to feel emotions, but we turn that gift around to serve our interests. And since we begin with ourselves rather than God, our emotions will always be complex and challenging to manage.
However, when we begin with the source of emotions, we will feel right and understand how to manage our emotions appropriately. To be freed, we must first turn from our self-serving emotional desires and accept them from the cross. Next, consider this: What does God want me to feel? This is where we need to start.
Jesus warned his disciples, “Watch and pray that you may not fall into temptation.” To avoid or eliminate foreseeable sources of emotional temptation, we must be vigilant and diligent. For instance, you might want to turn off your daily dose of “breaking news” if it makes you anxious. Or maybe you could quit checking your phone if your social media usage makes you unhappy.
We need to create a strategy that enables us to resist the flow of wicked emotions as soon as they appear. Once the temptation has passed, we can take the opportunity to consider our feelings in light of the Bible.PrayWe need to pray as well as be aware of emotional temptation. The key to managing our emotions is prayer.
One reason is that praying has an immediate impact on our emotions. It rescues us from a downward spiral of self-focus and refocuses us on God. God uses our prayers to draw us closer to him, which is why he created emotions in the first place. And prayer draws God closer to us and moves God closer to us (James 4:8). Prayer summons our heavenly Father’s careful assistance.
Why wouldn’t we scream to God in the face of every emotional temptation?
- Think about Truth
We frequently become mired in wicked thought patterns that feed our emotions. We could brood on someone’s sin against us, create fictitious, terrifying scenarios, or dwell on our failings and misdeeds. We must avoid dwelling on wicked ideas and instead focus on the reality of God’s Word if we want to regulate our emotions according to biblical principles.
Find one truth that will refute a lie, then reflect on it. In place of a terrifying scenario, use a biblical promise. Consider God’s detest of bitterness as an alternative to bitter ruminating. Consider Christ’s mercy rather than your shortcomings.
The Holy Spirit will rekindle our emotions when we replace our sinful thinking with the truth of God’s Word.
Philippians 4 vs 8. ‘Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable, if anything is excellent or praiseworthy, think about such things.’
- Act to Feel
A single remark or deed can relieve the strain from emotional temptation, just like a pin can deflate a balloon. Sometimes it makes sense to act in opposition to our feelings. When you feel like complaining, express your thanks instead. When you feel like withdrawing, strike up a discussion.
When you feel like criticising, sing a hymn instead. Leave your bed. Clear the table. Set the laundry in motion. Take a walk with. Get away from the argument. In other words, make one decision to resist temptation and go toward positive change.
Psalm 34 vs 14
‘Turn from evil and do good; seek peace and pursue it.’
The opposite of what you feel like doing may seem difficult, yet it has an immediate impact. The intensity of our bad feelings will start to wane even if our hearts beat with hostility, or our minds may be clouded with despair when we turn away from emotional temptation and toward one appropriate activity.
What one thing can you do right now to refocus your emotions?
In conclusion, we can be tempted to believe that immoral emotions are too strong after all that true change isn’t possible when they “cling so firmly” (Heb. 12:1). In actuality, however, “God is at work in you, both to will and to work for his good pleasure” (Phil. 2:13).
Delay losing control and focus on managing your emotions. Utilise the resources God has given you, including His Word, the Holy Spirit, and prayer. To organise your feelings, learn how to reflect successfully. Finally, keep in mind to let go. Although controlling your emotions can be challenging, you have the power to alter your life’s patterns.
God is gently working in our lives through the power of the Holy Spirit to change our emotions, even when we can’t see them or feel them.
