Psalm 34:17-18 MSG
“Is anyone crying for help? God is listening ready to rescue you. If your heart is broken, you’ll find God right there; if you’re kicked in the gut, He’ll help you catch your breath.” Psalm 34:17-18 MSG
One thing that I’ve learned about pain is that it hits us all in the same way. We may all have different experiences but the way it reaches the soul and causes brokenness is something that unifies us.
There is no worse feeling than to be in such pain without the ears of anyone to hear you. Help you. Love you. Pray for you.
And I am certain we all have been in that place…a deep pit where our cries sounded like hollow echoes from the depressing feeling that no one was there to fully listen.
But here is another thing I’ve learned about pain…it’s known by our Father and is relieved by Him and in Him.
Our cries may sound like hollow echoes to us but to God they are a resounding melody that moves Him even closer to us.
This passage in God’s word reminded me of His desire to never allow us to carry our pain. We are not meant to.
We are meant to cry out because He is meant to hear them. We are meant to be broken because He is meant to piece them back together. We are meant to fall because He is meant to pick me up.
He is always ready. Nothing we experience-pain, joy, heartache, confusion, depression, anxiety-NOTHING, catches Him off guard.
God is there.
Wherever you need Him to be.
Cry. Be broken. Fall.
He is ready.
