In life we go through lots of changes. We move to a new city. We meet new people. We get a new job. We remodel our house. We experience hardships, joy, or struggles. These things affect our emotions.
Recently, I have realized that my life is a crazy roller coaster of ups and downs. I can have the worst morning and then the day later gets better because I get to see friends, go to church, or simply because it stops raining. Our emotions are everywhere throughout the day. And I have realized that I cannot only worship God when I feel like it.
I cannot base my worship on how I feel. My emotions should not determine whether I worship the Lord or not.
A friend told me a quote the other day. She said: "Feel the feelings, but know the truth."
Hebrews 13:8 says:
"Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever."
Reading this gives me comfort that something in life is constant. Jesus is constant and better than anything that we could ever find. Rest in that truth. Know that life will drive you crazy, but rest in the truths of Scripture. Worship Him simply because He is constantly deserving of our praise.
