God wants you to come to Him with the good and the bad. It’s easy to bring to the good through praise and thankfulness but we also need to bring our troubles to Him. He already knows what you’re going through but He wants you to bring it all to Him. It doesn’t matter if it’s anger, frustration, confusion, pain, suffering, lay it all at His feet. Don’t hold back, pour your heart out to God and He will give you peace.

Verse of the Day: Isaiah 40:29
He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak.

Verse of the Day: Proverbs 17:22
