Capsule for the Day
"Tell God everything". This is the source of my strength. I find this very comforting and relieving. Sometimes I cry before Him, other times, I laugh and share good memories with Him. Many times, I just don't know what to say and worse, I can't even listen. My heart is heavy. I feel worthless, sad.
But just sitting there, knowing that He is there and that He can hear me even though I can't put my thoughts or feelings into words. Yes, I tell Him everything. Communication is just verbal, the nonverbal is also powerful. And God hears the nonverbal too. He listen to the recesses of our hearts.
In all times, I leave His presence feeling better than when I went in. It isn't always dramatic, but it is always real. I can feel it, smell it and even touch it. He wants us to tell Him everything. Everything: the good, the bad and the ugly stuff. He already knows, so, why hide it from Him? Tell Him, don't fear.
