Product Description

God cares about how you feel--how you process the circumstances you face and how those experiences shape your understanding of the world around you. But even more important, the Father wants you to understand that He has given you the gift of emotions to help you connect meaningfully with others, find purpose and joy in life, and reflect His love to the world around you.
Sadly, what often happens is that instead of benefitting us, our emotions control us. Rather than understanding that our feelings are a tool to enrich our lives, we are dominated by the negative thoughts they generate within us. Dr. Stanley deals kindly and compassionately with the five key emotions that wound us: fear, rejection, bitterness, guilt, and despair. He even shares personal experiences about how these emotions can take hold of us and make us feel helplessly trapped in their unyielding grip.
In Emotions: Confront the Lies. Conquer with Truth, Dr. Charles Stanley explains how you can break free from the feelings that have taken you captive and regain the purpose for which God gave you emotions in the first place.

Publisher's Description

I have GOT to get off this plane—right NOW!

That, of course, was impossible. The pilot had announced we were cruising at an altitude of more than 35,000 feet. There was no getting off—at least, not for a while.

But it didn’t matter. My body was in full crisis mode. My heart pounded. I couldn’t catch my breath. I looked at the emergency exit and began to contemplate my options. I wonder if I can get that door open. I need to get air. I HAVE TO GET OUT!

I pushed the button for the flight attendant. She found a doctor on board, who sat with me and asked me what was wrong.

I told him I was experiencing an overwhelming feeling of being trapped and that I needed to get off the plane. He said, “Well, you know you can’t.”

I responded, “Yes sir, I know I can’t. But the desire is absolutely overpowering.” As we talked, I admitted to him that I was going through a very trying time. He encouraged me, and the panic began to subside. It has been more than twenty years since that experience, but it taught me something very important: For us to overcome our fears, it is crucial we unearth where they originate from, which then shows us what thoughts trigger them.

Once the doctor identified the difficult circumstances I was facing as triggering my emotions, I was able to give the situation to God fully and counteract my apprehensions with truth from His Word.

—Excerpt from chapter 5

    We all have emotional baggage, it comes from living in a fallen world. Dr Charles Stanley helps us to recognize our negative emotions, locate the roots and then through the power of God find healing.

    This is a book for everyone to read. It is helpful and easy to read, it is as if you are listening to Dr Stanley speak directly to you.

    As usual, Pastor Stanley gets to the heart of the issues that all believers struggle with, and points us to Christ, as the author and finisher of our faith, and everything else we need! An awesome encouragement to "love and good works" for every believer.

    Since emotions can be so troubling, Stanley begins by helping us understand why God gave us emotions in the first place. They are a gift from God so we can enjoy life, interact meaningfully with others (including our Father) by sharing our innermost being, and mirror His likeness.

    But our fallen emotions are not as God has designed. We might wish we did not have to experience unpleasant emotions but Stanley reminds us that without them we would not know our need for a Savior.

    He addresses five emotions that hinder our joy and walk with the Lord: fear, rejection, bitterness, guilt, and despair. He identifies the roots of these negative emotions and then walks us through the components of healing. We need to experience new birth, examine our thoughts, exchange our thought patterns, exercise the power of prayer, and expect God's healing to begin immediately.

    Stanley explores each of the five emotions in depth. He gives examples of those experiencing the emotion, possible origins of it, the effect it has on our well being and our spiritual life, and then walks us through the healing process. He also provides Scriptural evidence showing the truth so it can be used to counter the lies.

    The healing process is something that is going to take time and work. Stanley has provided the tools but we will need to do the deep searching, the work of controlling thoughts and countering them with the Scriptures given.

    Stanley points out early in his book that we cannot do this on our own. It is only by the power of God that our emotions can be healed and that means we must be in relationship with Him. He explains salvation and invites us to accept Jesus as Savior if we have not already.

    If you are struggling with fear, rejection, bitterness, guilt or despair, and are willing to work along with God for your healing, this is a good book for you to read.

    I received a complimentary egalley of this book from the publisher for the purpose of this review.
