There is a fine line between simply empathising with another person’s state and fully rooting your own emotional identity in their experience. So how do you deal with the overwhelming emotions projected by others around you? How do you ensure that you do not root your emotional identity in the emotions of another person?
We should never come with an approach of ‘I know it all’ and ‘I’ve heard it all’. We must remain open and teachable, even before scriptures that we may have read hundreds of times.
Rest is not supposed to be this thing that you collapse into after an exhausting day or season. Rest is supposed to be your starting point. God doesn’t just give strength, He IS strength and He is in me.
Technology is a tool and like any tool it can be used for good or for bad. A knife can be used for cooking, a hammer or axe for building, but both can be used for harm. The tool has no morals or values, it is the user that brings their morals and values to the use of that tool. This is the same with technology. The psychologist in me makes me understand another aspect of the use of technology as a tool. Anything that we use creates or exerts a degree of change in us, whether we realise it or not. For example, when you constantly use a pen or knife, after a while you may see an impression on your hands and fingers. Similarly, our use of technology creates impression marks on our minds which primes us for future activities, decisions, habits, expectations and relationships.
I can assure you that when you partner with God on this journey - you will have the time of your life. God is interested in the journey and not just the end product.
