Here we go again!
We have an emotional memory. It’s called our amygdala. If you don’t know anything about it, you can what I wrote about it here.
Our amygdala, or our emotional memory, triggers us to something from the past that is similar to something we are going through now. Physiologically, it creates certain feelings in us. And it causes us to think to ourselves, “This is going to turn out the same way it did the last time” and we have those emotions: the anxiety, the fear, the frustration.
But here’s the thing…. God has done some work in us and in our situation since the last time this happened. If we are following Him daily, He is changing us. If we are praying, He is changing our circumstances and other people. The result doesn’t have to be the way our amygdala cautions us it will.
There’s a very good chance that this will be different, because God has intervened.
