it’s ok to cry

Those who sow in tears will reap with songs of joy. Psalm 126: 5

 

I see how hard you try to handle your heart, and I know you want to live a life without heartaches or pain. I’m asking you to take a step closer to your Father in heaven by crying out to Me when you hurt. Let Me heal you. Remember My chosen, King David? He cried out to Me in his fears, disappointments, and sin, and I answered. You are also My chosen one, and you are My daughter…so it’s okay to cry. I don’t expect you to pretend that pain is not real. It is truth and tears that will give you the freedom that I want you to know. Now let go of that part of that heart that only I can heal.

(from Sheri Rose Shepherd’s book His Princess: Love Letters from Your King)
