Overcoming the Seven Deadly Emotions Jan 23, 2010
Michelle has written yet another book that addresses who we are being and how these choices affect our happiness, success and ability to connect with others. While reading Michelle's book and revisiting the seven deadly sins, I realized I was guilty at times of allowing all of them to enter my thinking at times and the ramifications of these thoughts. This book is about cleaning up your thinking and addressing who you are spiritually. Being a better person means calling yourself out when you slip into these distructive emotional feelings and thoughts. After reading Michelle's book, I reset my moral compass and have prospered more for doing so. I admire Michelle for sharing herself and the love she has put into her work. My book "Becoming the Perfect Networker... Succeeding One Connection at a Time" was inspired by her message and for that I am thankful.
The power to be free.. Oct 1, 2009
A few years ago I became angry at someone. I had every right to be angry. I had been wronged. I could not sleep at night because I kept mulling over and over the wrongs. Being justified doesn't matter. My anger did not hurt the other person, it hurt me. God lifted the anger from me and restored my relationship with Him.
Emotions can be destructive. Michelle Borquez author of Overcoming the Seven Deadly Emotions recognizes the need to understand and deal with our emotions. She specifically addresses anger, fear, shame, stress, lust, jealousy and pride. God can heal us and use us if we will only let him. Borquez writes in a simple easy to understand manner. My favorite chapter is the last one. She discusses the power to be free and offers readers Freedom Act. This excellent book will assist all readers.
The reader will explore: * Surrender their emotions to God and allow Him to redeem them * Embrace God's plan for positive emotional living * Find new and healthy ways to deal with previously damaged relationships
take control and stop using your emotions as an excuse May 8, 2009
This book is about learning to take control of your emotions before they control you. It is learning how to respond to situations and people and how to glorify God through emotions.
Michelle states right at the beginning of her book this isn't a self-help book or one for the severely depressed. It is a book focused on spiritual growth.
Chapter 1- The thing I loved in this chapter was where she said: "God can't use or direct someone who is always hiding from life or from the possible next step." This really hit me. If I'm not out there God can't use me. -- She is talking about how our emotions are like spoiled children and that if we don't take control we are being in bondage and can't live fully in Christ.
I like that Michelle really stresses God's word in this book. She talks about how we can overcome these emotions and the counterfeit experiences our emotions cause us by being with Christ and his word.
She hits it on the nail when she says "I don't think that most people really understand how Satan attacks us behind the walls of our minds and hearts. If he can work his way into our minds, he can affect us where it hurts the most..."
In Chapter two, Michelle holds no bars when she digs right into what we need to do to deal with our emotions. She sets out a list of questions and methods we might have used to deal with our emotions and how to do it God's way. One of the strongest and greatest quotes she wrote was this: "The enemy wants you to keep blaming him for all your problems because it means you'll never start growing."
So, chapter 3- The Face of Fear. I love how Michelle lists some of the lies that we have heard/tell ourselves with fear and gives us godly responses and what God's word says about dealing with them. She lists seven of them, and I'll admit that I've experienced or had most of those fears at one time or another in my life. I think most will be surprised at this list and quite honestly it was great to know I'm not alone with those fears!
I am learning so much through this book and the scriptures I need to learn in my heart. I'm shockingly surprised at how much I needed to read some of this stuff. I think regardless of where you are, the spiritual growth you'll experience reading and putting some of these ideas into practice will strengthen and re-affirm your relationship with Christ. I find Michelle's writing challenging, and her use of scripture refreshing.
I know I barely covered any of the chapters, but I hope that gives you a good feel of what this book is about.
A Guide for Living, Coping, and Recovering Mar 2, 2009
I found this book to be intensely personal and quite straightforward in its delivery. This is direction in using God's word in handling specific problems and situations and is written in language all of us can understand. All who call themselves Christians will be refreshed in their belief and encouraged and reminded of the immediate availability of God's love and power for each of us. For anyone not sure of this "Christianity stuff", this book is an eye-opening guide on how to find and apply God's love and direction in one's life.
Simple Yet Profound Insights To Establish A Strong Emotional Foundation In Life Nov 29, 2008
In her book, Overcoming The Seven Deadly Emotions, Michelle Borquez presents sound and simple principles that produce enduring emotional strength and health. Her book negotiates through the forest of emotional challenges and clears a path that will bring sustained peace and internal security. One by one, she identifies seven deadly, life controlling emotions, explains the destructive nature of each one, gives practical illustrations of the negative and positive sides of these emotions and outlines realistic action steps to walk free of our emotional limitations and prisons.
As a minister and in serving as part of a pastoral staff, I personally encounter people who are dealing with a wide range of emotional issues. This book presents a vivid and valid hope to the tormented soul, but also contributes to the blueprint and strategic plan for those desiring to grow, mature and develop a greater, more godly lifestyle, grow more purposeful lives and enhance the quality of relationships in their lives.
Becoming established as an overcomer of even one of these deadly emotions is worth far more than the invested cost of acquiring this book. In fact, reading and applying the principles and truths found in each chapter can be likened to being personally mentored and counseled by a skilled and compassionate emotional health care practictioner.
In the 5th chapter, titled The Deception of Lust, we find conventional wisdom and counsel regarding our attitude in being walked through to our own personal, emotional strength, or in helping walk others through to freedom. The book speaks of how Jesus would address the sin of a person in contrast to the approach of many churches or believers: "Unfortunately, we pile more shame and judgment on these wounded souls instead of saying, 'Let me walk beside you in the areas of freedom you are pursuing. Let me be here and be strength to you, and even if you end up falling, I will be here to walk with you as you gain strength.' Jesus did this with people" (Page 88)
The author's insights interpret the emotional paths people take in living their daily lives and suggests new and better courses in which to steer our lives. In the chapter on The Torment of Anger, she addresses the fact that "feelings of perceived injustice...becomes a setup for unhappiness and a permanent state of dissatisfaction and anger." (Page 111) One emphasis of this chapter is to understand the difference between being a victim of circumstances versus being responsible for our attitudes, decisions, behaviors and actions that follow a perceived or real injustice. With a transcendent openness and transparency, Michelle shares her own battles to being an emotional overcomer. Michelle's personal life experiences teaches how to rise above cruelty and injustice, or even our own life-altering decisions and behaviors, to find and stand in a place of peace and wholeness.
In the final analysis, every one of us has faced, are facing or will face all of these emotions at some point in our lives and to varying degrees. This book gently, but firmly focuses the reader to look into the mirror and explore their own heart and lives to resist denial of personal responsibility and to embrace the help of God, His word and the cross of Jesus Christ.
The journey to greater and greater levels of emotional security, stability and wholeness may be on-going, but Overcoming The Seven Deadly Emotions is a vital and enduring tool to survive and thrive through the journey. Because it respectfully and unashamedly points to the standard of truth found in the Word of God and found in relationship with Jesus Christ, this book is a valuable weapon to fight off and overcome the emotional difficulties of life and all its circumstances.
After having read this book in its entirety, my life has been personally enriched. Both personally, and as the director of a Bible school and Christian Education Director at my church, I can wholeheartedly recommend this book to any person facing emotional turmoil, and to Christians of all levels.
