Tell Me Something True

There is something going on with me, but I can’t share about it now....I am still in the midst of it and feeling quite foggy in my head. And in my heart.

But I need your help.

I need you to tell me something that is true.

I don’t want to hear spiritual fluff; new age crap; psycho-babble; feel-good sentiments; or anything of the like.

I want to hear something true about what it is to suffer in this world when you know GOD.

I want to hear something true about what it is to feel forgotten when you know GOD.

I want to hear something true about what it is to hope and long and wait only to feel hopeless and wrong and weary when you know GOD.

Leave a comment on this post; send me an e-mail; send me a text; leave a message on Facebook.

Please tell me something true about those things.

Justine-
I will tell you something true about suffering, it sucks. I have been a believer since I was in 4th grade and have begged the Lord to heal my mother of her bi-polar depression. I have cried out to him asking why and still nothing changes. I have been angry, I have been sad, I have felt alone. I know God has the power to change things but doesnt......I have known suffering.

Justine,
I do not have anything profound to say and I understand not wanting to hear psychobabble (although I could do that ;)), new age, or other cliche things that come with well meaning and kind intentions. I want to tell you that it is ok to feel the way you do and it does suck! Feel the pain, it is there for a reason. I think you are an amazing person and I am so sorry that you are feeling this way! I wish there was something that could be done. I know I cannot do anything but I can be with you if you need a friend to go for a walk or to a museum or just have tea. The truth is you are loved by so many!

sweet Justine,

I have nothing intentionally profound to say. I just would hope that I can remind you of His truths: He loves you with jealously, He listens to you intently and you are on His mind continuously.
I am always really sweetly blessed by the honesty, vulnerability and beauty that you share amidst your circumstances. I don't know your same suffering, but I love you and am here for you.

Whenever I am in the midst of suffering, I immediatly think of the cross. The truth is, my suffering is tiny in comparison to His. He let His own Son be murdered for me. Preachy... maybe. True... absolutly. Loved... Very much.

Praying for you, sweet Justine.
