Life is a beautiful gift but sometimes the challenges of living it to its full value distract us from appreciating it. Emotions can be a big part in how we perceive these challenges. How we feel emotionally dictates how we respond with our actions or reactions. Feeling overwhelmed or unequipped to deal with things leaves you in a defeated state of mind.
Responding emotionally to situations and circumstances can limit the ability to recognize inner strengths, options, and solutions readily available to confront and conquer obstacles. There is always a way out even if it is not what you imagined.

Philippians 4:13 ESV

I can do all things through him who strengthens me.

2 Timothy 1:7 ESV 

For God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control.Emotions focus on personal abilities while faith reminds us it is not our strength nor the intellect that gives us victory.
