God has given us the tools in our design to return to joy. Here are some key steps in the process:
Acknowledge what’s happening
Identify and voice what’s true about what’s happening around you
Validate the emotion you’re feeling
Move toward gratitude, appreciation and listening to Jesus
Re-route back to joy
We hope this is helpful this week as you are in situations that may trigger some deep emotions. Remember that you carry within yourself the ability to return to joy.
If you find yourself struggling with these processes, we would love to help! We have small group labs that meet regularly to practice these steps in a safe and supportive environment. Our next free Intro Labs start next week. Visit tableandwell.org/intro to register.
