Randy BectonEmotion Over Mind, by Randy Becton

    Ellen Halstead has lived in the shadows of three sisters who are more intellectually gifted. Those sisters have become doctors and high level executives. By contrast, Ellen hasn’t even finished college. Yet today, Ellen is the manager of a large food co-op in Seattle. She is very happy. How does she do this?

Do emotions rule your life?
    Researchers are finding that people like Ellen rely on emotional intelligence. Ellen is especially in tune with the feelings of others. She has learned to regulate her emotions rather than be controlled by them. People like Ellen can manage their feelings so well, that they work better in teams.

    Do emotions rule your life? Does anxiety overwhelm you? Has your temper cost you a relationship? There is a way to keep this from happening. It’s through the power of Jesus Christ. In 2 Corinthians 10, Paul says the Spirit filled believer can take every thought captive and make it obedient to Jesus Christ. It is through Jesus that you and I can be set free from being ruled by our emotions. That’s good news.
