This week, practice empathy.
Lord Jesus, thank you for giving me the capacity to feel. Sometimes my emotions are hard, perplexing, and downright exhausting. At other times, my emotions are beautiful, life-giving, and uplifting. But, most of the time, I feel like I’m living somewhere in between. Thank you for the emotions that remind us we’re human beings, not human doings. Thank you for the spectrum of emotions that rush through my soul, Lord. Thank you for giving each one of us the capacity to feel. Amen.
Tonight, after 8 p.m. join us on the Transforming Mission Facebook page to respond to the following question (or feel free to comment below).
What emotions did you experience today? Note what you felt, who you were with, and what was happening. Then give God thanks for what you felt today. Be reminded that YOU are one of God’s beloved children.
These devotions come from a resource, “It Takes Courage.”
