Hold back your tears, crying is a sign of weakness. Keep your anxiety to yourself, you don’t want to burden other people. Don’t let people know you’re angry, they’ll think you’re out of control.
All of us have personal experiences with and perspectives of emotions. Whether we view them as unimportant or all-encompassing, we all uniquely wrestle with emotions in one way or another. But more often than not, our perception of emotion is skewed—malformed by culture and distorted by our experiences. As believers, Scripture is our ultimate source of truth—so what does God’s Word say about human emotion?
Join us as we untangle misunderstandings surrounding emotions and examine their biblical purpose in the new podcast, More to It: Reframing Emotions. Throughout the episodes, we’ll cover topics like grief, shame, anger, pride, joy, anxiety, and more as we look at how those emotions are talked about in Scripture and introduce counseling-centered tools to help us live out those truths. Mark your calendar and plan to join us for the first episode on June 14!
