ANTIDOTE #2 TO WEARINESS: WEEPING (aka OWN IT)

One of the most impactful things I ever read in the Bible is a verse which I have never forgotten from the first time I saw it:

Pour out your heart like water before the presence of the Lord.’‘ (Lamentations 2:19)

The Bible is filled with the prayers of those who are grieving, desperate for His touch, and weary of not only their situations but their wait.

One of the best antidotes for weariness to to admit you are weary. Fighting it just makes it worse in the long run when we bottle our emotions. We either crash or explode when we squelch our feelings down, and both are not healthy for us, and can also negatively impact those around us.

So if you too are weary, whether physically, emotionally, mentally, spiritually, directionally, relationally – even unintentionally? Bring your weariness to Him.

He is waiting for you to tell Him. He sees your weariness, and longs to wrap His arms around you and restore your vigor. He knows your heart, and desires to fill it to overflow with His love. He knows your loneliness, your grief, your exhaustion, your frustration, and wants to sit down with you in it, so you know you are not alone. And once you know that, to safely guide and walk you through to the other side.

So friend, if like me you tend to secretly hide your tears in your pillow or in the shower, or keep your tension under wraps for the sake of maintaining peace, or because you haven’t made the time to deal with how you are feeling for a long time?

Today is the day for you to pour it out in His Presence. Where He waits to love you and help you, right where you are at.
