Transformed: Emotional Health

Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.  (Romans 12:2a NIV)

Jesus called out with a loud voice, “Eli, Eli, lema sabachthani?” which means, “My God, my God, why have you abandoned me?”

(Matthew 27:46 NLT)

Our emotional health is transformed when we take what we are feeling and...

 

1)  NAME it.

My God, my God, why have you abandoned me? Why are you so far away when I groan for help? (Psalm 22:1 NLT)

2) REFRAME it.

Yet you are holy, enthroned on the praises of Israel. Our ancestors trusted in you, and you rescued them. They cried out to you and were  saved. They trusted in you and were never disgraced. (Psalm 22:3-5 NLT)

3) TAME it. 

  • CHANNEL it.

You must have the same attitude that Jesus had. (Philippians 2:5 NLT)

  • EXPRESS it.

I will proclaim your name...I will praise you among your people...Praise the Lord all you who fear him...For royal power belongs to the Lord. He rules all the nations....Bow before him... (Psalm 22:22-23a, 28, 29 NLT)
