Many people shy away from having a close relationship with God.
They believe the relationship is too hard, comes with many rules, or that it can’t be maintained.
But, after trial and error, I have found that this isn’t the truth at all.
The Only Relationship For The weak At Heart
We live in a world where being tough and strong mentally is looked highly upon.
And if you are anything but, you are seen as weak and feeble.
It’s no wonder why many people believe they should go to God with the same persona.
But to be completely honest with you; this isn’t what God desires.
Just as a mother wants her child to come to her with what’s bothering them, how they feel, why they feel the way they do, etc.
The same thing applies with our Father in Heaven.
He already sees those broken areas that you try to hide.
He is aware of what hurts.
He can sense your pain no matter how much toughness you try to wear day in and day out.
So why not go to Him and spill what’s on your heart..?
You won’t be seen as weak by letting Him in on your true feelings.
Because in Him, you are made strong. (2 Cor 12:9-11) paraphrased
When I started being REAL with God, I allowed Him to help me.
But over the last few months I can admit our relationship has deepened.
I know God was always waiting for us to get where we are right now (which still has plenty room for growth), but I’ll be honest by saying I delayed it.
I picked up a bad habit of keeping my emotions bottled inside and pretending I’m doing fine.
But I have learned over time that this habit doesn’t get me anywhere when it comes to being healed and helped by God.
As I stated above, God already knows what bothers His children and can see how we truly feel no matter how much we front.
Unfortunately, I was too stubborn to let Him in my heart at the time.
God will only meet you where you allow Him to go.
I slowly started to let God in– ALL the way in.
When I feel anxious, I tell Him.
Depressed? I go to Him.
Overwhelmed? I run to Him.
I tell Him exactly how I feel straight up and hold nothing back– tears and all!
I never imagined what I would receive in return.
Each and every time I go to Him, it’s like a big weight is lifted off my shoulders.
I feel complete again as He restores my strength unlimitlessly.
I used to think God would see me as weak if I told Him how I honestly felt.
But again, God encourages us to come to Him AS IS and He will help; (weak, tired, frustrated, upset) Psalm 46:1-3, Isaiah 41:10, Psalm 9:9-10, Psalm 34:17
His Help Is For Everybody
I want to encourage you to go to God with each and every emotion.
Just as I had to, we have to get passed only going to Him when we’re happy or need a prayer answered.
Just as He helps me, I know for sure He will do the same for you.
Open your heart to Him, let Him in, and watch as He strengthens and supports you.
He welcomes those weak areas and sees them as beautiful, too.
