“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
I came across this quote recently and wanted to share it with you.
