When Emotion Becomes God

I am grateful for the emotional education God has given me through walking with him.

In recent years, I have come to understand that we need to develop our emotional awareness if we are to build an attractive relationship with God. The religious assumption that the spiritual will somehow overcome the emotional is incorrect. The spiritual and the emotional work together to make our relationship with God satisfying, complete, and inspiring. 

If we fail to understand how they work together we will become spiritually dry, boring, uninspired, and dead. In this environment, God will become unattractive to us. When God’s influence and presence are absent from our lives, our emotions will become our god.

The following is a collection of supplemental devotionals, videos, Spotify playlists, and podcast episodes, to expand on Chapter 4 of the book, He’s Not Who You Think He Is: Dropping Your Assumptions and Discovering God for Yourself, and to help you develop a fresh perspective on God.

The Emotions Wheel

The emotion wheel, created by Robert Plutchik, offers a visual representation of primary emotions, displaying the varying degrees and complexities of different feelings. As a tool, it can help people grapple with, put a name to, and come to terms with their emotions in many different contexts, including simply developing greater self-awareness.
