I shared how I failed my trainer’s certification in a post here at High3r.com (Check out the article “Failed”). It was a difficult day for me but the Holy Spirit gave me comfort. I felt the peace that could only come from Jesus. I was able to sleep soundly that night.
I woke up around five AM as I normally do. I want to start early to spend time in prayer, reading the Bible and exercise.
This morning was special. A few seconds into my prayer and I burst into tears. I felt God telling me to let all my negative feelings go. I wept in God’s presence and I didn’t hold anything back. I thought I had moved on from my failure but apparently I still have a burden in my heart.
Sometimes you don’t know your limits until you get to your tipping point. Sometimes you don’t know how strong you are until you get knocked down and forced to fight again. Apparently, it easier to stay on top rather than fall and get up.
I cried to Jesus that morning and it felt good. I felt that the dagger that was stuck in my chest fell out. I felt stronger. I received a new perspective from God.
This event enforced my belief that it’s okay for us to cry. There’s nothing to be ashamed if you need to weep, I actually recommend it. I felt a lot better after pouring out all my tears in the presence of the Lord.
If we’re deeply troubled, there’s nothing better than to just seek the presence of God and cry our hearts out. God wants to listen to us. He feels our pain and He wants us to lay all our burdens at His feet. God wants to comfort us and give us peace. Jesus will give us wings like eagles to soar higher than ever. Seek to promote good vibes and spread positivity!
New International Version (NIV)
I sought the Lord, and he answered me;
he delivered me from all my fears.
Those who look to him are radiant;
their faces are never covered with shame.
This poor man called, and the Lord heard him;
he saved him out of all his troubles.
