Once again my heart broke. I was trying to come out of my shell, but I wasn’t quite sure how. Instead of acceptance, I had met with rejection, and my heart hurt even more. I sat on my bedroom floor, and just let myself sink to the floor. Tears and sobs were all I had to lift to my Savior that day. Words would not come.
And as I sat there on the floor, wordlessly lifting myself up to Jesus, I felt His presence. I felt His comfort. I heard whispers of how much He loved me, how He would make everything all right. He gave me the courage to get up, dry my eyes and keep going.
When you feel alone, when you feel as if nobody cares or understands, please know that there is one who has seen everything you’ve been through. He has been there when you’ve experienced pain and rejection; He has seen the hurts you’ve faced. I cannot tell you why those things happened to you, but I do know there is a Heavenly Father who wants to heal your heart. He loves you dearly and wants you to bring all your hurts to Him, even if you can only bring your tears.
…you have collected all my tears in your bottle. You have recorded each one in your book (Psalm 56:8 NLT).
