How Do You Feel?
How do you feel right now?
Do you feel anxious? Probably doing that “tick” thing that you do when you are trying to keep your head straight.
Maybe you are worried about the decisions you have to make. You are analyzing every possible scenario creating different situations that may come.
Maybe you are just trying to finish something that seems never to be finished.
Maybe your relationships are never coming to the happily ever after and frustration has sinked in.
Maybe you feel empty because as much as you try to fill with material things or entertainments the void does not seem to go away.
Maybe loneliness has trapped you. Even with people around you it seems you’re the only being on the planet.
How many times have people asked you this? Unless people know of a situation that is going on in your life most likely they won’t. Most of the time we forget that every day God wants to know how we feel. He wants us to pour our hearts in His presence and tell Him what has hurt us or what struggle we are facing that we have no clue to. Yes, God knows everything, but in His lovingkindness He wants to have this wonderful relationship with us that we may share everything with Him. He wants us to go to Him FIRST and tell Him what is going on inside us. The wonderful part is that there is no protocol! We can present ourselves before Him. Doesn’t matter if you are throwing a tantrum, looking at the ceiling crying, or just asking why; He will hear. David understood this clearly. He came before the Lord with questions, praises, ashamed, needing comfort, not understanding and pretty much every possible way. David knew the only one that will truly understand how he felt was the One who created him and had the power to change everything for his good.
The question is no longer how do you feel. Is Do you know who KNOWS how you feel? The only One is Christ.
For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. Hebrews 4:15
