It's Ok To Cry...To Feel...

Around the blog world we link up with The Gypsy Mama for Five Minute Friday. The goal is to write for five minutes straight, with no editing or backtracking, and then post.

Today's word:


Ready? GO!

I close my eyes tightly and hold my breath. I don't want him to know...but it is so strong, I cannot hide it.
"Are you ok?"
In a whisper...."no...."
He wraps his arms around and merely says "It's's ok to cry."

"Tell me not to worry about the money please?"
She tells me it's going to be ok, and God has a plan....
 my head is so muddled and everything confuses me. I want so badly to take care of it all on my own, but I can't.

Will we ever be friends again? Where is my life going? Will he really stay? Can I do this? 

I ache for all pain to go away. But I know God made me to feel. The aching only means I truly love people and that I can care for them. How sad would it be if we felt...nothing?

Trusting in God is the only thing to get me through the fears and the pain. I will admit, however much I don't want to, that I am scared. Scared of losing it all, scared of not making it, scared of the unknown.
But it's all in God's hands.
And with that knowledge and peace.... the aching goes away.

"Since no man knows the future, who can tell him what is to come? -Ecclesiastes 8:7


What does the word "Ache" mean for you?

1 Chronicles 16:11 "Seek the Lord and His strength; seek His presence continually."


  1. Such a true and honest post. I think everyone struggles to truly put their life in God's hands. Without fear or worry, though, we wouldn't know how great our blessings are. He gave us that, too. :)

  2. It's so good when we let our fears get swallowed up in His love. He always takes care of all the little details! Love your words here today.

  3. Lovely. I pray that God will show you His direction, and that He would open the doors and the floodgates of necessary money. We can do nothing on our own, but He can do it all.

    You are not alone in trying to trust God in everything.
