Talk to Me

I see that look in your eyes. You want to talk to Me. You want to tell Me what’s going on inside your head. Yet, I see that look questioning if I’ll understand, thinking there’s no way I can know how you’re feeling. You struggle with your identity, who you are and how you fit into the puzzle of life. You struggle with the void of certainty of direction and purpose. You attempt to deal with ever-changing emotions and thoughts you seemingly have no control over, so you keep them locked inside your head. You struggle, trying to give voice to these thoughts and emotions, but you don’t understand how to give voice. The words to describe this blanket that rests on your shoulders are foreign, unknown to your intellect. So you silently go through another day and then another, hoping for clarity, and yet you find no answer. Come to me. I AM the Creator of life (Genesis 1:1; John 1:1-14). I breathed life into Adam and he “became a living being” (Genesis 2:7). I did the same with you. Just as I created Adam, you too are made in my image (Genesis 1:27). I formed you, and I know your thoughts before you even think them (Psalm 139). That pull you struggle with? It’s my Spirit drawing you to look nowhere else but Me. Put your trust in Me, and I will lead and guide you all your days. Don’t look this way and that way for your answers. I have them—all of them—so keep your eyes on Me (Hebrews 12:2). • Sharon Mowery • What things do you struggle to talk to God about? • Read Hebrews 4:14-16 and 1 Peter 5:7. As Christians, why can we bring anything we’re feeling to Jesus? • To learn more about what it means to put your trust in Jesus, check out our “Know Jesus” page.
