ILMS 8 - The Truth about Mental Health: Emotions

+ YA: Tremble

Psalm 46:3


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?

Romans 14:1-3


2 – Irritable, Frustrated, and Angry

Ephesians 4:26

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


Psalm 37:8-9


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

Jeremiah 29:11


6 – Helplessness

When we feel like we have very little control

Mood swings – the struggle is real


Exodus 3:14

What is the most encouraging part of Who God is for you in the middle of the trembling?
