God is Giving Me Godly


Latin, emotio, emoveo, to move from.
Literally, a moving of the mind or soul.
A reaction to an impression or sensation, either to appropriate and enjoy, or avoid and repel the exciting cause.

Webster's, 1st ed., 1828

I move my emotions in accord with God's Law. I train my emotions to react spontaneously, to appropriate and enjoy the good, and avoid and repel the bad.

My emotions are governed by the Law of God. I mourn with those who mourn. I rejoice with those who rejoice.

I am properly emotional at those things which make God emotional, and truly feel those emotions in my whole being, regardless of what others may say.

At the appropriate times I am spontaneously

1. sensitive, feeling, compassionate, warm, tender, affectionate, loving, sympathetic, sensuous.

2. angry, wroth, outraged, indignant, pained, hurt, grieved, appalled, fervent; I deplore what God deplores.

3. sorrowful, mournful, sad, agonizing, lamenting, heartfelt, tearful; I cry when God cries. I mourn with those who mourn.

4. rejoicing, merry, delighted, blessed, jubilant, exultant, exhilarated, enthused, elated, mirthful; I rejoice with those who rejoice.

5. loving, amorous, passionate, ravished, thirsty, captivated, satisfied.

I think God's thoughts after Him and I feel God's feelings after Him.

just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love, having predestined us to adoption as sons by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will,
-- Ephesians 1:4-5

Thy Word have I hid in mine heart, that I might not sin against thee.
-- Psalm 119:11
