Meyer also warns people against allowing feelings to influence behavior. Wise choices can be difficult to make at times, especially when we are stressed or angry, but thinking long-term and looking at our desired outcome will help us do the right thing. Don't get caught up in how you feel in the moment. Think before doing or speaking. In other words, don't let your feelings have a vote!
Regardless of one's religious beliefs, there is wisdom in the author's words that benefit everyone. We live in a culture where emphasis is placed on our outward appearance. However, what really matters is what's inside and we all need probably need to spend more time working that rather than being overly focused on outward appearances.
Disclaimer: I received this book for free from FaithWords.
I know for myself, I allow my emotions to have a hold on me, especially stress. When I'm stressed my body reacts in many different ways. I felt Joyce gave me a 'pep talk' on how I need to change the way I react to the stressful things in my life.
Throughout the book, Joyce helps you to understand some of your feelings and explains how God has supplied us with what we need to keep our emotions from controlling our life. But we must ask God for His help in our emotional situations. She makes it a point to let the reader know that if they cannot get their emotions under control then their emotions will take control of them.
At the beginning of the book there was a quote that really struck me. The quote is from Jonatan Martensson and it says, "Feelings are much like waves, we can't stop them from coming, but we can choose which one to surf."
I really enjoyed this book and plan to reading it again and again as needed. I would recommend it to anyone interested in getting their emotions under control.
On a 5-Star scale - 5-Stars.
I would like to thank Sarah Reck with Faith Words, a division of Hachette Book Group, for my review copy. I received my Advanced Reader Copy for free in exchange for my honest opinion which I have given.
Joyce examines the majority of human feelings and discusses the way the brain processes and stores memories and thoughts. In great detail, she explains how we can easily manage our reactions to those feelings, and in doing so, teaches her readers how to efficiently manage the gamut of feelings that wreak havoc on our lives.
I recommend this book to people of all ages, from preteens to the elderly. Joyce's advice pulled me out of my pit of despair and has forever altered the way I view the world, how I handle my emotions, how I regulate my thoughts and feelings, and how I am in social environments. "It gave me the tools to set the ball in motion for my life outside of high school, helped me to make proactive choices and helped me regain control of my life." from my 18-year-old daughter who read the book before I got a chance to read it first. It made that much of an impact for her.
I received this book Living Beyond Your Feelings by Joyce Meyer, compliments of Faith Words, a division of Hachette Book Group for my honest review and would rate this book a 5 out of 5 stars! A MUST READ!
