Just Let It Out

Why do I fret over things?  God is there to help me.  My help comes from the Lord.  He made all of heaven and earth.  I think he can manage what troubles my heart.

Recently I had lots of tears over some situations/people.  My heart just hurt for them.  So it is ok to allow myself to feel sorrow over things.  It is ok to bawl.  There is something so therapeutic/healing about crying.  It is as though you are allowing that hurt to be expressed and let out.

For years I foolishly believed it was a sign of weakness to cry.  But now I know it is the strong who allow themselves to cry and to admit they are weak.  Expressing emotions is a sign of strength.

Where I received that message, not really sure.  I feel like it was a wrong assumption I took from a grandparent at one point.

So I used to only cry alone tucked away in a bathroom or late at night in my bed.

But now I just let it out.  I’m like a weeping willow.  Everything makes me cry.

There is freedom admitting I am human and weak.  I don’t have to be “pulled together” all the time.

So I am trying when I worry and am overwhelmed with something to bring it to God.  He is my help.  I can bring to him through prayer and be crying at the same time.  Recently I felt heavy with sorrow.  Trying to trust that heavy burden to Jesus.  Jesus tells us, “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.”- Matthew 11:28.
