I know there are days that you just feel like crying. Where your soul hungers for answers and you groan before God. These are the times where you truly don’t understand His ways – even if you still trust in His heart. If this is where you are right now I hope and pray this message ministers to you right now.
“O Lord listen to my cry, give me the give discerning mind you promised.”~~ Psalm 119:169
Sometimes it’s enough for me to simply cry to the Lord. To vent to Him. To have Him there to listen. It’s reassuring for us to unleash our heart on His shoulders; knowing that He carries all our concerns with such great care.
We all seek understanding…often. We seek relief from our doubts, fears, and concerns. But it’s almost more important to us to be heard. We need to know that we matter. That our thoughts, heart, and voice…matter. We need to know and feel like God sees us. Yes, sometimes that’s more important to us.
I’m here to remind all of you that no matter what you’re going through God DOES see you. He DOES hear you and YOU DO matter to Him. He provides you a way for your cry to come before Him and to rest at His feet.
Some days our hearts just wants to pour out. It doesn’t want advice or direction – although it might the next day or the day after that. It simply wants to spill. It wants to unleash all that lies within it – the emotion, the feeling, and the questions.
I’m so thankful that all our cries can come before the Lord in those moments and on those days. I’m so thankful that He never gets tired of us and that we’re never a burden.
May our cry come before you, Lord. Today – and always.
