I was wondering if I could get assistance on finding verses that could help with feeling emotionless? For a while now, I’ve been able to only feel the bad emotions- anger, fear, sadness – and a tiny bit of happiness. I haven’t felt love for anyone, including God, in a long time. I understand them though, and I have been praying about this for a while now. I’m fighting a losing battle. I need help finding verses that could help me along with my prayers, that I could possibly base a study off of. Please help me. This has been beginning to scare me because we’re supposed to love God with all our mind, heart, soul, and strength, and I haven’t felt that in a long time. And with everything going on in the world, it’s easy to tell Jesus is coming soon. I have been praying about this for a while now. Please help me find these verses. Thank you!

It kinda sounds like you are fighting depression to me. How long has this been going on? Have you talked to the people in your life about it so they can help you? Do you have a hard time finding motivation to do the simplest of things like getting out of bed in the morning? Do you always feel like there is a dark cloud above you?
I apologize that I don’t know any verses but what you wrote really made me feel that I should say something. I hope this doesn’t offend you. I just want to help you feel better.

Hey lovely!

First of all, PolkaDot’s advice is spot on. It definitely sounds as if you’re struggling with depression.
Also, when God tells us to love him with all of our heart, mind and soul it’s not really speaking of emotion. Love is an action. Love is 1 Corinthians 13. Feeling love–or rather affection–is great because it helps us put love into action, but a feeling is not all love is.
God doesn’t want you to be afraid. If you’re concerned about this, talk to God and be completely honest. I promise he won’t stop loving or blessing you. 🙂 you’re his daughter, and God is a good father who really loves you for you.
Instead of worrying about whether you love God enough, focus on his love for you. The scripture tells us that “we love because he first loved us” (1 John 4:19)
Please talk to someone about your feelings! Depression is NOT something you have to live with for the rest of your life. God wants you to be happy, because he just loves you so much!

Thank you girls so much. I have actually been thinking that this might be depression, but then I think about how I don’t really have bad thoughts about myself, and I still have my passions. I’m by no means offended by that. I actually asked another PI girl about it and she told me that love is more of a lifestyle. And I found a YouTuber who did a video on almost my exact situation and suggested to read Psalms, and I’m going to check out 1 Corinthians, as well. Thank you both so much, again. 🙂 I really appreciate your help:)
