Fact or feelings

In reading the Bible I've not found that God writes about our feelings.  He doesn't cater to our fragile frail psyche more than to say in Psalms 23, He restores our soul.  What I've seen is that in the Word, it is man's action in regard to God himself , or in opposition to God and it's consequences that is recorded.

I find I get caught up in my feelings.  But it seems to me my feelings are unimportant in the larger picture.  It is what I do in regard to God and my choice to follow him or go my own way.

Do I worship, rejoice in and obey the LORD God Almighty, the creator of heaven and earth.  Or, do I go my way, act on my desires and live not in faith and trust but doubt and fear.

It is not my feelings but what I do in regard to them.
