The Unspeakable


I have often  sought a  lonely spot to deal with distress and over and over i have come to realize that it is okay to want to pour out your heart.
God is our Father of intimate, loving compassion. That  very compassion invites the honesty that voices the unspeakable and brings healing. 
 
It’s all right—
questions, pain, and
stabbing anger
can be poured out to
the Infinite One and
He will not be damaged.

Our wounded ragings will be
lost in Him and
we
will
be
found.

For we beat on His chest
from within
the circle of His arms.

"Even now my witness is in heaven; my advocate is on high. My intercessor is my friend as my eyes pour out tears to God; on behalf of a man he pleads with God as a man pleads for his friend." —Job 16:19–21

"Therefore I will not keep silent; I will speak out in the anguish of my spirit, I will complain in the bitterness of my soul." —Job 7:11

I cry aloud to the LORD; I lift up my voice to the LORD for mercy. I pour out my complaint before him; before him I tell my trouble. —Psalm 142:1–2

  1. This is very true. I think a lot of americans don't want to show any weakness, even in faith. But w out dealing w the weakness we never get strong.

    What about ugandans?

    1. I think it is a universal problem. People all over the world, Ugandans included do not want to admit weakness. But this is not right.
