Feeling Wheels for Feeling Well

I was reminded of the concept of a "Feeling Wheel" in a recent post from Lifehacker. They suggested using such a wheel for expanding one's vocabulary, citing an English Teacher's blog.

The Feeling Wheel has its origins in counseling and psychology. It can be a helpful tool for pastors who wish to pinpoint their counselee's presenting problem in a helpful way. As we seek Godly Wisdom in a given situation, having the right words can help. We begin in language because after all, "In the beginning was the Word." The Psalmist writes,
"Search me, O God, and know my heart; Try me and know my anxious thoughts; And see if there be any hurtful way in me, And lead me in the everlasting way." Psalm 139:23-24
