Conflict Resolution

00:00

Description

Conflict is messy, emotional and exhausting. We can get caught up in the emotion, or we can ask Jesus for a better perspective.

Just yesterday I was knee deep in some conflicts that made me want to rip my hair out.

Many of us want to avoid conflict with all our might. Conflict is messy, emotional, and exhausting.

The rational part of my brain sees situations one way, but the emotional part of my heart sees them differently. We can get all caught up in the emotion, or we can ask Jesus for a better perspective.

I’ve learned that feelings should be indicators not dictators. They can indicate there are some emotions to process, but not dictate how we act or react in a situation. Thinking this way helps me cut through that emotion and focus on a solution.

No tangled feelings, No big issue, just a good solution without the added stress of escalated emotions.
