It’s been a long time coming – last night I cried myself to sleep – I dug my head so far in my pillow I almost couldn’t breathe.

I cried so hard that my heart felt like it was coming out of my chest and I just kept on crying until there was no energy left in me, and the – I drifted off to sleep.

We’ve all had nights like these – we’ve all had that need to just get it out – the hurt, the pain and the heartache.

All those things we’ve carried around piled up and pinned up, way down deep in our heart. Behind a locked door, we thought we’d gotten rid of it – oh but then, something happens and we find ourselves back at that door.

There was a song that a friend used to sing, it was a simple song with huge meaning in which I’ve clung to many times over the years – I’ve shared it before and it goes like this ..

“My heart is like a house, one day I let the Savior in, there are many rooms where we would visit now and then, but – then one day He saw a door, I knew the day had come too soon – I said, Jesus I’m not ready for us to visit in that room. There’s a secret place in my heart where even I wouldn’t go – I have some things hidden there that I don’t want anyone to know. Oh but He handed me the key – with tears of love on His face, He said I want to make you free, let me go into your secret place. So I opened up the door and the two of us walked in – I was so ashamed, I’d revealed my hidden sin. But now when I think about that room, I’m not afraid anymore – for I know my hidden sin, no longer hides behind that door”

Friends, there are times when we have to remind ourselves that God is so much stronger than our feelings and He wants to help us – our feelings are valid, they’re ours and they’re real. However, we must make sure that we stay in touch with our emotions – we can’t move as He would have us move when our emotions are flying high. So we stop and give it a minute.

As Believers, we have the power of Christ living within us – which means – we can win our battle over our emotions though His power – we absolutely do not have to let our emotions control us, for nothing, absolutely nothing, can separate us from His love.

With Him by our side, we can fight our battles. We’re more than conquerors and victory is ours, simply because of Him, and friends, no matter how tough life can become – we can praise Him, for in spite of the heartache – we all have so much to be grateful for – it’s in every breath we take, in the very midst of our pain and suffering, that something happens when we begin to praise Him – our hearts become whole again and our negative emotions go away.

It’s through patience and never giving up that we find ourselves in a much better place.

I don’t like to give the enemy a lot of credit, however, the truth is – a lot of heavy heartedness comes from spiritual attacks, so many of our emotional battles are spiritual ones – a heavy heart, although valid – may need to be fought spiritually.

We can train our minds to learn His ways of fighting this kind of war – our minds are a battlefield and we must control our thoughts, while keeping them in line with His. He is faithful to hear our cry for help and He wants more than anything for us to live this life to it’s fullest, and to to that – we have let Him in that door – the one we keep locked up tight, way down deep in our hear.

So with this – let’s grab hold of the truth and let’s rock this.

We are loved by love Himself. He loves us big and He loves us strong, and yes – Love Wins Period

“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls” Matthew 11: 28-30
