Not sure how to phrase the title. Yesterday at church a lesson was being given on being rescued by the Lord. Not sure how it came up exactly but someone made a comment about how we shouldn't bring our complaints, our whining, or tears to the Lord in prayer. That we need to be careful about that. And while I think we need to often and without holding back express our deepest gratitude and love, I also think it is o.k. to take our burdens and our heart aches to the Lord. I made a comment. (And I never make comments in class at church.) That I thought that is exactly who we can bring our heartaches, our burdens, and our tears to. If we can't take it to the Lord, then we can we take it to? He already knows our hearts, he knows our trials. He knows what we have going on in our lives. He, more than anyone, will understand. Evidently not everyone agreed with me. Because another comment was made "Maybe you just need a friend." Well, duh! I do need a friend. I know this. But even if I had an entire network of supportive people in my life, I would still need the Lord. He did add "Maybe I should be your friend." Someone after church did approach me and tell me I was spot on in my comment. That is what we are told in the Scriptures. To cast our burdens to him. It was just an interesting conversation that I am still going over in my head. And I am trying to understand more where the teacher was coming from. Because I often pour my heart and soul out to the Lord. If I can't to him, who can I?
