Hey guys! Welcome back. If I am being completely honest, I haven’t always been the happiest follower of God. There have been times when I have been sad, mad, and questioned everything. There have been times when I just haven’t been able to fully understand why things turn out the way they do. But I’ve been afraid to show that. I didn’t want to feel ashamed of being angry with God or having questions because that’s not the way it’s supposed to be.
But over the past few years I have learned that no matter what emotion I feel or how much I try to hide it, God still knows it is there. And I have learned that the stronger I grow in my relationship with Him, the more my emotions and feelings come out. The more I am able to show and ask of Him. So I have come to realize that just because I question things or show negative emotions, does not mean I do not have a relationship with God. It means I am human and I am not perfect.
But God is still with me in the good times and the bad. For that I am thankful. He walks with me through the most difficult times and guides me to good things that life has to offer. I find myself feeling His presence most when I am struggling, but I am reminded He is there when things are going well. And though I have questioned what He is doing or why He has done something, I have never questioned if He is there. Because I know that He always is.
I have learned that God is not against me, but that He ultimately knows what is best for me. I know that He is with me through all the bad moments and helps me find my way to the good. The world tends to be a dark and scary place and without Him there is very little hope. But I am reminded everyday of the goodness He has to offer and why I hold Him so close to me.
Through all the times in my life when I had no one, I always had Him. He picked me up when I was down and always gave me no more than what I could handle. But He pushed me, challenged me, and forced me to grow. He showed me the truth when I needed to hear it. He taught me what real love is and what acceptance is. He pushed me to learn to love myself and to live the life that He has set out for me to live.
So I know that it’s okay to show my true feelings because God can handle it. He knows that I am not perfect. He knows I fall and struggle. He knows that things are not always the best and that sometimes I just need a little encouragement. But luckily He shows love and grace. I know that no matter what, I will never be alone and that brings me joy and peace. I have a heart that God truly knows, so when things are bad and I get upset, He can handle it. But He always knows how to bring me back.
