Having negative emotions doesn’t make me a bad person; it means only that I’m in need of healing. Healing is a detox process, in which things come up in order to be released.
God can only take from us what we are willing to give to Him, and how can I give to Him what I myself have not first looked at?
Feelings need to be accepted as they are before they can transform.
As I release my negative feelings in an appropriate context—neither projecting them onto another person, nor condemning myself for having them—I begin the inner work necessary to change them.
I accept that they are there, release them to God, and pray that He will change my mind about whatever situation has caused them. Thus my miracle begins.
I give to You, not hide from You,
My negative feelings
About anyone or anything.
I know you do not judge me,
But rather You will deliver me
From the insanity in my mind.
