Pouring out our hearts to God

Emotions Some people rarely pour their hearts out to God.  And yet, Psalm 62:8 reads, "Trust in him at all times, O people; pour out your hearts to him, for God is our refuge."

Dan Allender says "Ignoring our emotions is turning our back on reality.  Listening to our emotions ushers us into reality.  And reality is where we meet God. … Emotions are the language of the soul."

I'd say it's good to be honest about what we really are feeling deep down. 

And I'd say that's really hard for me.  Sometimes I can get in touch with deep emotions; other times it's harder.  But I work at it, and life circumstances have given me some painful opportunites and, well, I'm getter better at it … I'm getting healthier.  

Lately I've been pondering a lot what it means to be open and vulnerabile before God.

Do you know how you feel today?  Have you told anyone?  Have you told God?

You've probably done this little exercise before, but do it again.  It's good for you.  It's healthy …

What are you angry about today?  Sad about?  Glad about?  Afraid of?  Ashamed of?  Can you tell God that?
