This week we take on a listener question: “How do I control my emotions?”

Thankfully, since we are also emotional beings, Scripture has a lot to say on this topic. In fact, we are commanded to be “self-controlled” and we are given tons of practical advice on what that looks like. If being disciplined and self-controlled sounds out-of-reach for you, boy do we have good news!  The Lord has not left us alone to figure these things out and pull ourselves up by our bootstraps. He has given us His Word, His Spirit, and His people to help us grow more and more into the image of Christ every day! 

Let’s chat!

    Hi, new listener.. Can you guys do another episode on this subject and bring more verses to support, and to make more tangible. This episode was great, thanks.

    • Summer Jaeger

      Hey Hoda! These are the verses I read in the episode for your reference:

      2 Tim 3: But understand this, that in the last days there will come times of difficulty. 2 Forpeople will be zlovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, 3 heartless, unappeasable, slanderous, without self control, brutal, not loving good, 4 treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, 5 having the appearance godliness, but denying its power. Avoid such people.

      Titus 2: 11 For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation for all people,12 training us to renounce ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright, and godly lives in the present age

      Proverbs 29:11 A fool gives full vent to his spirit, but a wise man quietly holds it back.

      Proverbs 12:16 The vexation of a fool is known at once, but the prudent ignores an insult.

      Proverbs 19:11 Good sense makes one slow to anger, and it is his glory to overlook an offense

  4. Dennis Bratcher

    Could you get bookmarks or time markings on the progress bar for the episode? It is great you have the episode navigation help but figuring out where they are at is tedious.
    Always enjoy the show!

    I love that Joy realized she needed a toe ring during Summer’s toe ring talk.
