You ever go through those moments of just emotional gloom? I always describe those days as “blah” days or maybe even weeks, because that is usually the best way to describe it. You’re just kinda there, maybe a little disheartened and/or discouraged. Not happy, not sad, just going through the motions. Ever been there? I’m sure we all have at some point or another. We all want for people to think that we have it all together though, don’t we?! I think being real with people has become a lost art. We all want everyone to think that our lives are perfect, that we have it all together, not a worry in the world, when it is the furthest thing from the truth. I wish we wouldn’t put up those fronts sometimes. Don’t get me wrong, I am not saying that you need to spill your guts to the next person that asks you “how are you doing”! However, I don’t think that there is anything wrong with saying, “you know what, I’ve been better and would love it if you pray for me.” Or something of that nature. No need to go into details unless you want to. I know that is not the easiest thing to do because it makes you seem vulnerable, but this walk through life can be hard sometimes and we Christians have to stick together!! Pray for each other and be there for each other.
I WISH I was better at hiding my emotions sometimes. I have said it before that I do not hide things well. If I am upset, you can tell. When I am not myself, you can tell. I am a happy person, and you can tell when a happy person isn’t happy. I definitely wear my heart on my sleeve. Which I have to say, is a blessing and a curse. But I do know that when I hold everything in, it hurts me more that it helps me. This whole “blah” thing is where I have been for a little bit. And I really don’t have any explanation for it. My mom asked me this weekend if there was anything that she could pray for about a certain area in my life and I literally couldn’t come up with anything to say. I was trying to find the words, but nothing was coming out that made sense. After I got off the phone with her, I realized that even though I have absolutely no clue on how to form words on how I am feeling, God knows EXACTLY where I am. I am not “blah” to the God of the universe! Thank you Lord!! I find so much comfort in that and I pray that you do too. He knows exactly where you are!
Ya know, it’s funny…when I am writing these out and I start getting to the end I always feel like I am somewhat repetitive and end up saying the same thing. It’s probably true, but what, or maybe I should say WHO is the common denominator in ALL of my posts?? It’s Jesus. It’s my God. It’s Jehovah. When you are “blah”…Jesus. When you are broken…Jesus. When you are afraid…Jesus. When you are discouraged…Jesus. When you are losing hope…Jesus. When in doubt…Jesus. When you are failing and need a Savior…Jesus. When you don’t know what to do…Jesus. When you are lonely…Jesus. When it will take a miracle…Jesus. Jesus! Jesus! Jesus! He is the answer for EVERYTHING!! There is mighty power in His name!!
When nothing else…JESUS!!!
When you are having this moments of doom and gloom or maybe feeling a little depressed, go to the One who knows you better that you know yourself! Just say His name and I promise that you will start to feel better! Call out to Him! He knows!
