“How is your world today?”

“Maybe I should not have asked that?”

As women, we have a wonderful gamut of emotions. In fact, we have so many different emotions, that it can leave us feeling really confused at times, because we have to sort them all out. It is not only our own emotions that we have to deal with, but those of others, as well.  

For example, we can perceive love in our lives, coming from many different directions. But there are times, when what we are confronted with, is not an expression of love. In fact, it may be exactly the opposite, or an expression of non-love, in varying degrees. Sometimes it appears to be more like what we would actually describe as hate.

When we are confronted with love, it brings forth joy in our lives. Women understand and relate to that emotion. Joy is the epitome of love.  

Joy and non-joy, or sorrow, would be considered as opposites. One might say that the epitome of non-joy is sorrow.        

When we are confronted with something that is devastating, like sorrow, or even some degree of what appears to be hate, it causes fear. We may become frightened and respond in a very negative, or derogatory manner. The epitome of fear is hate.      

There definitely is a relationship between love, joy, hate and fear. Being aware of that relationship helps us to understand ourselves and others.  

“Perfect love casts out fear,” the Bible tells us. This is one of the reasons why it is so important for women to love one another, in a godly way. “God is love.”      

As we interact with other women around us, expressing our love to them, as best we can, at that particular moment in time, will help them to deal with their emotions too.  


“Let’s sit down and have a cup of coffee together,” can work wonders.
