Sometimes all our favorite coping mechanisms fail us.
Sometimes clearing our heads just makes the clutter in our hearts stand out more.
Sometimes it’s not a matter of unbelief or challenging circumstances.
Call it hormones. Label it mood. The fact is, sometimes despite what we believe, we just aren’t “feeling” it.
While there are many ways to help get the truth from our heads to our hearts, I’ve found sometimes hearts are just tired. We get worn out. Weariness settles in.
As with physical collapse, trying to get up on our own when we’re worn down emotionally is ineffective.
“Hope in God, for I shall yet praise Him,
The help of my countenance and my God.”
He is the help of the very thing within us that crashes at times.
In His abundant grace, God who is our Hope also gives us hope. When we’re wearied, our personal, loving God extends a hand to lift our heavy heads (Psalm 3:3.)
Some feelings are just feelings and the God who sets all in motion ensures they too will pass. Yes, we shall yet praise Him.
He’ll help us to do so.
Isn’t that right there already a cause for praise?
