Pouring our hearts out before the Lord can feel really foreign, but David in the Bible, who was known for doing so, once said of God: “Tell him all your troubles and pour out your heart-longings to him. Believe me when I tell you—he will help you!” (Ps 62:8 TPT). And help David, God did—time and again, giving him numerous victories on the battlefield. Plus, if you think about it, you can certainly be 100% honest with the One who created you and knows you inside out.
From the seemingly smallest to hugest of your problems, He’s all ears. He won’t be shocked by your darkest, ugliest thoughts…and best of all, you will leave that conversation (or cry sesh) with the Lord stronger. Happier. And ready to face life again. Will you pour out your heart before your #1 confidant and friend today?
