My Feelings Are Not God…God is God

“…my feelings do not define truth.  God’s Word defines truth.  My feelings are echoes and responses to what my mind perceives.  And sometimes- many times- my feelings are out of sync with the truth.  When that happens- and it happens every day in some measure- I try not to bend the truth to justify my imperfect feelings, but rather, I plead with God: Purify my perceptions of your truth and transform my feelings so that they are in sync with the truth.”

John Piper, Finally Alive, p. 165-166.

    To see as beautiful what God sees as beautiful. To think God’s thoughts after Him. To feel as Jesus would feel.
