Dealing with the Viruses that Destroy Your Plan

An additional important step is making the choice to take control over your emotions.  In order to do that we must look at what can be some emotional roadblocks or “viruses” that prevent progress.  Four of these are guilt, anger, competition, and fear.  We also need to be very careful who we give the remote control of our emotions to.  Lots of times well-meaning relatives or friends can hinder us emotionally.  Even interactions with the Ex can cause a downward spiral emotionally.  God tells us in scripture to “take captive every thought”. This means that we do not allow destructive thoughts/ emotions to take root.  Do not dwell on those things.  As we talked about yesterday, we need to focus on the One who will get us through.  He reminds us that He cares for the birds of the air and the lilies of the fields and how much more does He love us?  Make the choice to not allow yourself to dwell on those destructive emotions.  Choose to take them captive!
