God created us with both positive and negative emotions, and we often struggle to live each day with these conflicting mental states. In God's Power to Survive Emotions, author Linda Edwards introduces five of the negative emotions that God has created within us: anxiety, anger, loneliness, grief, and fear. These can sometimes stand between us and our service to the Lord.
Even so, there is hope and peace for us all. This guide explores how God encourages us to deal with these negative emotions in positive, peaceful ways through a series of lessons. Each lesson includes personal examples; exegesis—that is, a critical interpretation of the Bible; and Scriptures to aid in the journey toward understanding and controlling these emotions. Edwards concludes the text with a chapter on finding peace within your skin, challenging the audience to examine their personal history with God.
By learning to turn to God and His Word for guidance, believers can transform their negative emotions into positive emotions and discover the peace that everyone longs for in their lives. God's Power to Survive Emotions offers a practical, achievable road map to finding the path to a happy life in service to the Lord.
