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.
