Now Watching White Noise Part 2 - Out Think

The Holy Spirit, working in our lives, produces good fruit. Instead of masking the unwanted emotions in our life, he produces new emotions. How does He work? Psalm 1 tells us that the key to the Spirit’s work is meditation on the Word of God. Meditation is how we take in the water of God’s truth and bring it into ourselves. So what is meditation? Meditation is thinking in God’s presence. It is speaking to one’s own soul in the presence of God. It is the bridge to life-transforming prayer. To sit quietly for prolonged periods of time with God can feel awkward. Even painful. But without prayer, we can never fully know ourselves. In this message, we’ll discover how meditating on the Word helps us surface and identify the unwanted emotions in our lives. Until we name them, we will never be able to get rid of them.
White Noise

White noise is a great tool for masking the unwanted noises and distractions in our lives. You might use it to fall asleep or focus on work. But what do we use to mask our unwanted emotions? We often experience emotions that distract us in life—anger, resentment, jealousy, hurt, and more. And since they are painful and unwanted, we try to turn them off as quickly as possible. But getting rid of them is hard work. So instead of dealing with them, we bury them, we stuff them, we self-medicate them, and we even project them on to others—we mask them. In this 4-part series, we’ll learn how to stop masking our negative emotions, and how to start isolating and dealing with them.
