This past week has been TOUGH. Just plain ole tough. I felt like I was getting beat up by LIFE. In every single area.
And all I wanted to do was VENT! VENT, VENT, VENT! I didn’t want to pray about anything that I had going on. But, every time I would pick up the phone to randomly vent, I got convicted. Why did I want to talk about it to someone that could solve NOTHING, instead of our powerful Father? Our gracious, Father. Our all knowing, Father. Our loving, Father. The GREAT I AM.
This is what I had to learn.
Stop running to people & run to PRAY. Did I learn it right off the bat? Nope. I did it today. Like a few hours ago. And this is the song that I cried my eyes out too, raw and transparent before our Father.
That’s how he wants us to come to him. He just needs us to come with an open heart, transparency and a willingness to surrender it all to him. He needs us to stay in that place, to not try to pick up our problems and carry them. He wants us to pray, all of the time! While there is nothing wrong with having a solid support system, wise and Godly counsel, and friends- they cannot be your god.
God knows you better than ANYBODY on this Earth, even better than your mom, spouse or best friend. – He’s sovereign.
There is nothing you can do to without Him.
There is nothing that He can’t handle.
There is nothing that He can’t solve.
There is nothing too hard for Him.
Sis, just lay it down. Stop carrying whatever it is- a bad doctor’s report, financial problems, marital problems, infertility, the adoption process, job chaos.. WHATEVER. Just lay it down, because YOU can’t do anything about it. Draw close to Him. Fall on your knees. Pray.
I’m praying for you.
