ILMS 8 - The Truth about Mental Health: Emotions
+ YA: Tremble
Internal and external turmoil
HCSB – “though its waters roar and foam
and the mountains quake with its turmoil.”
What in the world feels chaotic, or adds to the turmoil of life?
Goal: We want our emotions to inform us, rather than lead us.
How do you like to let your emotions out, rather than roiling inside?
6 common spectrums of emotion:
1 – Warmth and acceptance
Inverse = loneliness and rejection
How does acceptance feel?
How is warmth and acceptance associated with happiness for us?
2 – Irritable, Frustrated, and Angry
1 Corinthians 13:5
Getting into the Word to change our mood
Asknig self: What’s in this? Why am I (fill in the blank)?
Finding someplace to put it
3 – Discouragement, Sadness, and Depression
Inverse: Joy, Zeal, Engagement
Understanding and differences
2 Corinthians 1:3-4
How do you engage in life?
4 – Fear, Anxiety, and Worry
Fear and Creation
Anxiety – internal, biochemical, inner turmoil, broad
Worry – thought process related to something specific
What are you afraid of most?
What makes you anxious?
What worries do you have?
5 – Confusion or the Fog
The teenage brain, details, and early mornings
Sleeping and eating matter
6 – Helplessness
When we feel like we have very little control
Mood swings – the struggle is real
What is the most encouraging part of Who God is for you in the middle of the trembling?
