It’s been an emotionally charged week. One minute I feel as if I’ll be okay and the next, I’m weeping uncontrollably and begging God to take the hurt away.
Have you experienced this?
The Lord gave me a super tender heart. Combine fragility, vulnerability plus a very thin skin and it can be a painful recipe. How could I ease the ache?
Thankfully my mother knows me well. She listens attentively, reads the situation and gives awesome advice. She’s walked through a lot of storms herself.
I also talk to God. Many times a day! I reach out to Him. And His words deliver the love and comfort I thirst for.
When my heart was grieved
and my spirit embittered,
I was senseless and ignorant;
I was a brute beast before you.
Yet I am always with you;
you hold me by my right hand.
You guide me with your counsel,
and afterward you will take me into glory.
Whom have I in heaven but you?
And earth has nothing I desire
My flesh and my heart may fail,
but God is the strength of my heart
and my portion forever.
No, I am not alone.
