I am having so many questions right now and my emotions are playing with me, but thank God that I don’t put my trust in my emotions. God says to come to him when I’m grieving. God says to come to him when I’m hurting. God says come to me when I’m angry. God is my refuge and strength even when life is crazy. I see what is going on and I say “God you’re in this?”. God says yes and I will sustain you and I will give you peace. God never promised life would be easy for me but he always promised he would be my comforter, my peace, my banner, the almighty, my shepherd. Am I hurting? Yes, I just seen so much pain this week from church to Virginia Tech. Yes, God is in that situation as well.
As a friend told me yesterday, it’s okay to have emotions and not to hide them. Talk about them. Write them out. God is big enough to handle them and I am not big enough to handle them- I need to be honest to God.
God’s great invitation says:
28 Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy to bear, and the burden I give you is light.” – Matthew 11:28-30
