Emotions sure are a funny thing. Just now, I was driving down the road as happy and content as could be. The weather is absolutely glorious, and I was thinking about how good weather positively affects people's emotions.
Then, suddenly, I remembered an event that happened with a fellow Officer months ago. Instantaneously, I found myself getting angry. Just like that, in a split second, I went from utter happiness and contentment to anger. Why is this? Have I no more control over my emotions than this?
The last fruit of the Spirit listed in Scripture is that of self-control. Perhaps I need to beg the Lord for more of that in the area of my emotions.
Are all human beings like this? Or, is it just me? I think I will spend the rest of my drive singing and talking with Jesus, trying to enjoy this blessed weather He's given me today.
