Shalom is peace to
your emotions. When you have peace everything is well with you. God's Peace surpasses all understanding even through difficult times.
Merriam Webster Encyclopedia describe peace as; a state of tranquility or quiet: freedom from disquieting or oppressive thoughts or emotions; harmony in personal relations.
Some times emotions can run away with you. The Message Bible Verses puts it this way in Job 15:12... “Why do you let your emotions take over, lashing out and spitting fire, pitting your whole being against God”.
Instead why not let Jesus take over. Jesus came here to bring Peace on Earth. A Christian perspective shows how, emotional wellness will manifest when there is Peace with God.

Emotions drive thoughts like a powerful motor and words can steer thoughts in a certain direction. Everything is connected together and will work in harmony with God's peace to maintain emotional wellness.
We are one person with many members. We are a spirit, we have a soul and we live in a body. Our Emotional wellness is one part of the wholeness that is Gods will for us.
Your soul contains your mind, will and emotions. Your personality, it's what makes up you, that unique and special you. There is no one exactly like you and God Himself is the lover of Your soul. He loves you for who you are.
If you don't believe that, take that thought captive and ask God what He says about it. The Word of God tells you the truth.
God knew you even before you were born...
Jer 1:5 "Before I formed you in the womb I knew you; Before you were born I sanctified you; NKJV
wellness will come as we yield to God.
Give God your will, submit to Him and pray...Ps 139:23-24 ... Search me, O God, and know my heart; Try me, and know my anxieties; 24 And see if there is any wicked way in me, And lead me in the way everlasting. NKJV

But it's not enough to
just know what the Bible says cognitively or mentally. You can know
what the Bible says and still doubt if it will come to pass for you personally.
God is the one who conquers double mindedness just like He is the one
who kept all the law for us. Lean on Him just as you did for
salvation. Find out more how to over come double mindedness.
Sometimes we can read Scriptures and believe they are true but we can have a hard time receiving them for our self personally. We believe cognitively with our mind but we have not had an experiential knowing.
His manifested presence is Experiencing God. God makes Himself real, it becomes personal. God wants you to know Him personally. He is so close to you even right now. But many times we are not aware of Him.
When we invite Jesus into our heart God comes in the form of the Holy Spirit to dwell inside the believers body. Out of our belly will flow rivers of living water. He is there, in the deepest part of you, that is the heart of man. It's where your gut feelings come from. It's hard to imagine the God of the Universe dwelling inside our fleshly body. But He has chosen our bodies as His Temple.
Besides the Bible itself, God can speak to us through simple things like thoughts or pictures in our mind. God uses the tool of our imagination to communicate with us.
We can hear Him also through the small still voice or the loud sound of circumstances. Don't put God in a box and think He will only speak to you in some preconceived way. He is God and will speak to you in many different ways as He sees fit.
Don't get religious on me and think you are not good enough to hear from God yourself. He
died for you, don't you think he would be willing to speak to you? He said, My sheep hear my voice. He
will speak to you. Ask Him to and expect Him to answer. Ask in
Jesus name and He will most assuredly answer you.
When God speaks to you the Word becomes alive! Experiencing God makes Him real to YOU. God's will is to heal and make you whole, change your life and give you peace beyond understanding even in the midst of difficulty!
So when you catch yourself thinking thoughts that you know are not what the Word of God says, stop and ask God to correct your thinking.
When you feel pain from hurts you have suffered then give that painful emotion to the Lord and ask Him forgive For you.
He will do it with perfection. Ask Him what His perspective is about
it. Then listen carefully and expectantly for Him to answer. Ask God to break down the strongholds within you.
Faith will bring you into a personal experience with God. Trust God and expect Him to answer when you pray to the Father in Jesus Name. Seek Him with all your heart and you will find Him and experience God. Peace will follow. Emotional Wellness is a part of the overall healing the Lord wants for you.
Emotional Wellness, having peace with God will cause us to have peace with others also. The Holy Spirit will lead us into a life of emotional control through the powerful God tool called forgiveness. Our soul will begin to prosper and we will flourish under Gods wings of protection.
Jesus came for you to have life and have it more abundantly. God wants you well in all areas including emotional wellness.
Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.3 John 2 KJV
