I’m Coming Out The Closet
Right now I’m just flat shot. I’m not talking just a little tired. I’m not talking about just a bad day. I’m talking about a series of days that I must admit have left me feeling broken. But, everybody knows we should never let others know such stuff. They might not think the same of us. Especially if we are often claiming to have such faith.
Well, right now in the midst of my absolute exhaustion. In the midst of feeling so stressed. In the midst of knowing I’m not at all okay. In the midst of absolute inside turmoil. I’m coming out of the closet with total honesty.
The truth is I’m often overwhelmed, discouraged and on the fence of depression. Yes, I keep pressing forward by faith. However, I rely on my faith because my flesh keeps failing me. In fact, the entire reason I ever said yes to Jesus was because I’m not okay without him. Definitely not without His grace, strength, comfort and peace.
Anyone who ever tells me they’ve got it all together shouldn’t stand next to me. I would be too afraid the lightning might strike us both after that big lie. My advice to every person out there struggling. Don’t be afraid to admit your struggles. Don’t be too prideful to let others know you’re just not okay.
Holding things deep within for too long just creates greater hardships. So, find someone you really know loves you. Let them know if you feel overwhelmed. None of us were meant to make it through this life alone. Often we need to know that we’re not the only person with skeletons in our closet. With nonstop struggles that apart from Jesus we certainly can’t bear.
“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. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-30
