Is Gambling a Man's Thing? We Dare to Disagree

To be a professional gambler, you need to be a man - at least this is what many media outlets and society as a whole are trying to tell us.

"The only way to fight a feeling is with a feeling." Rolin McCraty

I ran across this statement while reading One Thousand Gifts over the last two weeks. It stopped me in my tracks.

Feelings run so rampant these days. Look around our neighborhoods, schools, the television, etc. You'll see feeling not only in word, but in action as well.

What if we were to truly live out the statement McCraty gives us? Replacing anger with love, disappointment with contentment, anxiety with peace, etc.

All feelings are a choice. When someone offends us we can choose to be angry and bitter, or to be merciful and forgiving. When we haven't heard from our hubby we choose to be anxious or to be at peace.

Fighting isn't typically something I encourage, but in this type of instance I believe it is perfectly placed.

How many times have we lost the fight to anger, hopelessness, depression, on and on the list goes.

Wouldn't it be wonderful to win those battles? To defeat the negativity input lives? To change our outlook on life?

My challenge to myself and you today is to FIGHT!

When those feelings well up within you, fighting to take control - fight back! Take time to pray, ask God strength for the battle before you! Be at peace for He is your strength, and He will not leave you alone in the battle!

Choose. The choice is yours.
Fight your negative feelings
Or
Allow them to defeat you.

Totally agree that feelings are choices! That's why the Bible says the heart is wicked and deceitful because we can't trust our feelings. We need to CHOOSE to feel differently! It's difficult, but not impossible. Thanks for that insight!
