It's OK to Be Sad

It's OK to Be Sad

When I heard these things, I sat down and wept. For some days I mourned and fasted and prayed before the God of heaven.—Nehemiah 1:4 (NIV)
Are you feeling down? Talk to God. Be honest about your feelings. You don’t need to pretend that you’re fine when life hurts. Instead, do as Nehemiah did: cry. Be sad. Mourn. Grieve. Ask God to help you believe that tomorrow will be better.

Today's Prayer:

Heavenly Father, I know You rescue those with crushed spirits. Wrap Your arms around me and heal my broken heart.
