Remember This

Feelings C S Lewis

“The great thing to remember is that, though our feelings come and go, God’s love for us does not.

It is not wearied by our sins, or our indifference;

And, therefore, it is quite relentless in its determination that we shall be cured of those sins,

At whatever cost to us, at whatever cost to Him.” ~C. S. Lewis~

“Feelings and feelings and feelings. Let me try thinking instead.” ~C. S. Lewis~

“Don’t bother too much about your feelings.

When they are humble, loving, brave, give thanks for them.

When they are conceited, selfish, cowardly, ask to have them altered.

In neither case are they you, but only a thing that happens to you.

What matters is your intentions and your behavior.” ~C. S. Lewis~

“Love is not affectionate feeling, but a steady wish for the loved person’s ultimate good as far as it can be obtained.” ~C. S. Lewis~

“Nobody can always have devout feelings: and even if we could, feelings are not what God principally cares about. Christian love, either towards God or towards man, is an affair of the will.” ~C. S. Lewis~

I’m thankful that God understands our hearts so well and makes sure to show us again & again that we can trust His.

Thanks for stopping by today. Blessings, friends!
