Okay, first I'd like to say thank you to everyone for understanding and for your encouragement and support.
Fear is not an emotion that is of God. I believe that. I believe there are certain emotions/feelings that are of God and some that are not. Love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control are all the fruits of the Holy Spirit and therefore are of God. (Galations 5:22) Therefore, one is to conclude that emotions such as fear, hatred, jelousy, and all the other opposites of those good emotions would therefore be not of God. And I experienced fear while my husband experienced jealousy. I apologize. And I thank you, my Christian brothers and sisters, for not treating me in a negative way because I was not being very Christian-like for a while there. Instead you all stood by me and uplifted me and brought me back to where I needed to be. That's what God intended for his children to do for one another, and I thank you.
Thank you Sarah, for your input on this conversation. I apologize for being unreachable in the beginning and then for turning your thread into a whole other topic than what you intended for it to be. Yet, you were a good sport about all this so I appreciate that and I hope we can be Christian friends for a lifetime.
Thank you, Bobinfaith, for you understanding. Thank you for giving me that Bible verse to refer to and thank you also for the direction to the thread Before I enter TalkJesus
. I have followed the advice that you gave.
Thank you, ForeverwJesus and Eden for your advice, support, and suggestions. Your words of wisdom helped a lot.
And thank you Chad, for understanding how and why this odd topic got started in this forum. And thanks most of all for having a place that Christians can come to and for praying for the people who come here and for allowing God's will to be done and God's work to take place here at TalkJesus.
Love in Christ to all,
