It’s a Thursday evening, I set my alarm, jump into bed feeling all worn out – fatigued, sore throat, flue and not really ready to work.(I do the night shift) Ring ring,, goes the alarm after what to me seems like 30 minutes but guess what; It’s been a whole 3 hours. I try to lift my head and it feels like someone just hit me with Thor’s hammer; okay let’s try one foot – oh boy did someone just tie me up??
As all these thoughts go through mind, I try talking to God but wait; what should I tell God? Should I cry out about my heaviness, anxiety, pain or approach Him and confess that: “You know what God, I am fine, I do not feel the hammered head, I thank you” As a growing Christian, I know there is a scripture 1 Thessalonians 5:18 that says “ In everything give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you” also one in 1 Peter 5:7 “Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you” so my head really kept debating about what to do until I finally got out of bed and prepared for work.
Of late anytime I try to tell someone I feel pain or emotionally worn out (even when they insist I be genuine with them); I get the response, “You are well in Jesus’ name, never say you are sick or tired” and this has led me to a point where anytime I feel hurt I try to talk to God alone; well even when I feel really tired, heavy and need to talk to someone human lol. Anyway back to my point; As Christians, should we really only open up to God even when we feel hurt, weak, worn out? Are counselors God sent – after all what they normally listen to is brokenness, hurt, wounded hearts? Should we only trust God with our pain and keep silent because “All is well” ? For now, let me leave this to you.Evelyn thelevelupblog insanitybytes2 Leighann Eddie S Meagan Lee Maria Alesi Miriam Kyas Brad Watson
