There may be some of you today who are beginning another day of pain or deep heartache; that was left over from yesterday. Times like these can make us speechless within the heart…sometimes to the place, where we can’t even pray.
Today, as I was thumbing through my Bible…God led me to a beautiful verse in Romans 8:26, which reads… “And in the same way—by our faith—the Holy Spirit helps us with our daily problems and in our praying. For we don’t even know what we should pray for nor how to pray as we should, but the Holy Spirit prays for us with such feeling that it cannot be expressed in words.”
Have you ever had a moment in your life, when the pain or deep heartache was so overwhelming; that you didn’t even know what to say to God? I wonder why we feel that we have to converse with God, in such an eloquent way, when all He longs for us to do; is simply come to Him as a child?
As I think about this…I see a child, who approaches a parent, while going through a deep moment of disappointment. That child may have tears streaming down their cheeks but that seems to be the only language that can come forth, from a deeply broken heart. In a similar way; there may be moments when all we find the strength to do is let the tears flow from within. Even though the words just don’t come…God still understands the language of tears and will not only hold us close, during these hurtful moments; but He will also interpret those tears and pray on our behalf. What a God; that He would love us, in such a way!
No matter what you may be facing today…go to God as a child and let Him hold you close and be everything; that just seems to be too painful for you to be on your own. He will be everything…for everything you need…I know!
