I feel like I’m learning so much, and yet at times I just feel… sad.  I don’t know why.  I must be doing something wrong.  And when I’m feeling sad and get asked how I’m really doing I lie and say I’m fine.  Why do I do that?  I know that, even if I don’t know why I feel the way I do, talking about it would probably help me think it through.  And why would I not accept a blessing when someone genuinely cares enough to ask how I am?  Why do I want to have someone to talk to but not want to express my thoughts, hurts, and feelings to my family?  Why do I always want attention from outside sources?  Why don’t I draw on the abundant supply of support and encouragement that’s within my own family?  Am I, right now, sinning because I feel the way I do?

            Lord Jesus, teach me.  I give all these questions and feelings to You.  You know precisely what to do with them, even when I don’t have a clue!  Thank You, Lord!
