A Whine and a Whimper

Psalm 64:1

These days, we tend to categorise people in those who are emotional and strong and stable ones.

If someone is pro to easy tears and sadness we tend to avoid them. Most of us do not know how to address emotions, we don’t know how to handle tears.
Some cultures are far from all the ’emotional’ side of life.
In those cultures, the serious face and stern posture are expected as normality.
I remember one time I was very upset about a relationship that mattered a lot to my husband and me which was dismantling and both sides were not finding ways to resolve. I was emotional and visually upset with the situation, but that was seen as ’mushy, weak and drama’ from the other side.

Emotions are a great indicator that something in our intellect, body and heart is troubling us. Our whines and whimpers might be ignored by men, but they are never dismissed by God.

Let me tell you something: You are safe to be emotional with God.

He is forever patient and sensitive to see our needs.

(See 1 Thessalonians 5:18, Hebrews 4:15-16, Ephesians 3:12)
