Do you cry?

Have you cried in church? I know I have felt like crying.

I visited the chapel last night for an hour of adoration and found myself in a much different situation than last week. This week there were 4 adorers at 10pm which surprised me so late at night!

I found myself almost immediately drawn to conversation with the Lord. I found myself just pouring out my thoughts and feelings as though I could not hold them in. I have something personal weighing heavily on my heart. I shared it all with HIM last night.

Have you ever shared your most intimate secrets with your Savior? You would think that since He already knows.. it wouldn't be such a big deal huh? Not so!

I couldn't stop the emotions that followed. Now don't get me wrong. I did not just break down and start sobbing uncontrolably. But, I couldn't stop the tears from flowing.

It was a cleansing hour and as I tried to follow my "schedule" from last week with prayers, I continually found myself drawn back into a deep confessional conversation. I find myself somewhat drained emotionally today. Perhaps that will keep me from living in my head so much today!

Beautiful post. I have spent many an hour crying in church. There is such a thing as the gift of tears. I figure my tears make a good prayer.

I haven't quite been able to turn them off since!
