It’s 4 am. I’m sitting here in my pitch dark room (with the exception of my computer screen) crying like i’m three years old.
Despite the overly emotional few months I’ve had…I’ve just been thinking about a lot. In the middle of my thought process, I simply hear the voice of the Lord and all He says to me is:
“I’m proud of you.”
Which, let me just say, had absolutely nothing to do with anything I was thinking about. I was thinking about other people, I was thinking about a lot of random things. Yet, somehow, He knew. He knew that I needed to hear that for some reason. I don’t know why. I have not been walking around with a mindset that God is disappointed in me. Yet, He knows me and much better than I know myself. He knows that somewhere in my heart, I needed those words. Whether they pertain to the reason I’m crying or not, they were what I needed. Just something to encourage you to listen to Him today. It might not be what you expect. He may not explain all the things you’re questioning. He may not tell you “the next step”. He may just whisper the most random thing you’ve ever heard. Listen with your spirit, not with your head because He knows our deeper need. He knows that which goes beyond the physical, emotional and mental weights we carry. He goes straight to the deepest part of us and whispers the truth that sets us free. That truth alone can untie us from every other outside thing has us bound.
He knows us. It’s as simple and as complicated as that.
