A Feeling Denied is Intensified

Feelings are like balloons we try to hold under water—the more we hold them down, the more they try to escape to the surface. Now this doesn’t mean we should give expression to every feeling; there are some feelings we need to ponder, pray over and consider. Some feelings need to be explored to see if there are deeper feelings beneath the most obvious ones. Take time today to consider what you are feeling and whether you have found an appropriate outlet for it.
