The average person has 70,000 thoughts every day, and many of those thoughts trigger a corresponding emotion. No wonder so many of us often feel like we're controlled by our emotions. Our lives would be much improved if we controlled them.
In LIVING BEYOND YOUR FEELINGS, Joyce Meyer examines the gamut of feelings that human beings experience. She discusses the way that the brain processes and stores memories and thoughts, and then - emotion by emotion - she explains how we can manage our reactions to those emotions. By doing that, she gives the reader a toolbox for managing the way we react to the onslaught of feelings that can wreak havoc on our lives.
In this book, Meyer blends the wisdom of the Bible with the latest psychological research and discusses: the 4 personality types and their influence on one's outlook, the impact of stress on physical and emotional health, the power of memories, the influence of words on emotions, anger & resentment, sadness, loss & grief, fear, guilt & regret, the power of replacing reactions with pro-actions, and the benefits of happiness.
Evangelical Christian author and speaker Meyer explains in her typical straightforward style how controlling emotions can be when they take over an individual's life. Meyer is known for her bold delivery and in this work maintains that standard, offering readers plain truth on taking back a life that has been ruled by emotions for too long. The author recounts generously from her own life episodes of comical (or otherwise) moments when she allowed her emotions to overrule her better judgment, with disastrous repercussions. Readers will resonate with Meyer's ability to relate biblical principles to daily life as she tackles the gamut of emotions: anger and resentment; sadness, loss, and grief; fear; guilt, and regret. Meyer focuses on learning to think biblically, speak biblically, and then see lives and emotions transformed. Her many fans will not feel disappointed in her latest work.
