Sometimes it’s a challenging to feel safe enough to share our true feelings with others.
We fear the rejection, the judgment of others.
Sharing our feelings helps us.
When we share positive feelings we increase our positive self-regard. When we share our heavy feelings we often decrease the emotional weight we had been carrying alone. Sharing our feelings also helps us to build deeper relationships with people you care about and people who care about you.
In my experience connecting with God has been transformative.
Max Lucado explained, “Let him do his work. Let grace trump your arrest record, critics, and guilty conscience. See yourself for what you are — God’s personal remodeling project. Not a world to yourself, but a work in his hands. No longer defined by failures but refined by them. Trusting less in what you do and more in what Christ did. Graceless less, grace shaped more. Convinced down deep in the substrata of your soul that God is just warming up in this overture called life, that hope has its reasons and death has its due date.
This happens when grace happens. May it happen to you.“ 1
God, reveal our true selves and let us not “settle”; transform us please” is mysilentscream.
