 Show Notes:

While we experience imperfect emotions every day, Jesus perfectly experienced emotions.

Heidi speaks about common misconceptions, or partial truths, many believers have when considering their emotions. She explains why experiencing emotions matter, and how they are a gift from God not to be turned away from or scorned. Heidi also stresses the importance of staying in God’s Word when going through partial truths and reflecting on God being our Savior from our imperfect emotional experiences, rather than just a manager.
