Clinging On For Dear Life...

When the only thing that is keeping you from falling flat on the concrete pavement is God's hands.
"Let me go. I've failed. I don't deserve any of this."

...and yet He holds on tight.

"Grace is undeserved merit. You did nothing to deserve this, but just because I love you."

Your grace beyond reason has paid for our freedom.

3 days in a row now.
Breakdown is inevitable.

Been talking to Him continuously.
And though I wish with all my heart to share this burden with someone, I feel it will unnecessarily burden others.
Why make others miserable?

...if only I knew.

~ The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit, a broken and a contrite heart - these O God you will not despise ~ Psalms 51:17.

Hey, if you feel you need to breakdown. Find a quiet room, close the door and lock it. And then breakdown. And then ask our beloved Father to give you strength and guidance, He never fails.

And also don't be afraid to let go, [which is very hard I know], but let it go into His hands.

Plus, I hoped you'll be encouraged to know that you're not the only one who feels this way. If you need to share, share. I had my fair share of inevitable breakdowns too, thank God for my mom who heard me cry over the phone so many times. :)

thats why God gave us friends and family - to share and carry each other's burden when it gets too heavy for one to bear on their own :)

said a prayer for ya!God is good :)

@Elaine: That's exactly what I did. I'm normally quite tolerant nowadays, but I guess it became too tough to bear alone.

Actually, I have no option.
If I don't let go, I'll just...I don't know.

Share?
Everyone's busy with their own things.
It gets tough, but that's life.

@Li Anne: I know. But everyone had their own lives to lead. So at this specific point, gotta carry it alone. Then again, there's God right beside.

And thank you for the spiritual support.
Need that real badly.
