An imprecation on false emotions

Lord, I beg of you to align my emotions with your truth.

Do not let me feel peaceful when I am not right with you, for that is not true peace.

Do not let me feel happy when I am seeking satisfaction apart from you, for that is not true happiness.

Do not let me feel fulfilled when I have sought my will and not yours, for that is not true fulfillment.

Do not let me feel content with complacency, for your desire for my life is excellence.

Lord, do not let me feel what is not true.  Give my emotions truth-glasses, so that they may be accurate indicators, like pain, of what needs to change in my life.

For I would rather feel emotional pain now than go on living a lie before you.

Lord, I beg of you to align my emotions with your truth.
