Are you going to be in a bad mood or a good mood? Believe it or not it is a decisions more than it is an emotion.
We all have decisions to make every single day that we live. What we deiced can determine how we answer the first question. Good mood or bad mood? Yah you are probably still thinking that it is an emotion and not a decision. It’s okay I use to think the same way! But over time I learned that emotions are decisions just like everything else.
Look at it this way if you will. If you are making good decisions about everything else in your life, then life can be pretty sweet. If you just started with good decisions and smart wise choices then everything else tends to work itself out pretty well! If I made good choices about what I eat, and how much I eat then my health is better and I make better decisions about everything else in my life. If I am making good decisions then when it comes time to deiced what mood I will be in then it is easy to make the decision to be in a good mood. Now today, well today there has not been one good decision that I have made. I am in a bad mood because I choose to be in a bad mood. It is that simple. Everything else in my life is not going good and so when it was time to deiced what mood I was going to be in I chose the mood that best fits with all of my other decisions.
So our emotions can revolve around the decisions that we make, and they our emotions are decisions as well. What can we do? What can I do? Well of course make better decisions for starters and then I will have a better time with my mood. The Bible puts it this way. Galatians 6:7-9 7 Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. 8 The one who sows to please his sinful nature, from that nature will reap destruction; the one who sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit will reap eternal life. 9 Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. That’s me today a person who has become weary in doing good. So I have made one mistake after another and it has caused me to choose to be in a bad mood. I must start following the first part of this verse and live from the Spirit and make good decisions. When I start doing this I will have a better chance at making the decision to be in a good mood. It starts and ends with God. I have to make decisions from His wisdom and from His Spirit and well lets face it I will choose to be in a good mood.
