I have learned through the years that God does not want just our happy; He also really wants our sad. Everything is not fine, and God wants to hear about it. He is drawn to us when we’re mourning and blesses us in a special way. God is not up there minimizing our pain and comparing it to others who have it worse than we do. God wants all pain to be surrendered to Him, and He has the capacity to respond to it all with infinite compassion.- Esther Fleece, No More Faking Fine
I can remember times that I would want to pray, but just didn’t have the words for it. Someone once told me to just say what you’re dealing with and God will rest with you in this. Sitting in his presence when in crisis can be so healing. God doesn’t need us to make small talk. He knows what we are going through and wants to be your hiding place.
Let Him.- Meghan
