When you feel anger, negativity, fear or sadness, do you turn your heart to God? Many Christians are fearful of bringing negative emotions to the Lord because they feel they need to be perfect when addressing Him. They may believe that they cannot speak to God about feelings that steer them away from the Word. This cannot be further from the truth!
God wants you to come to Him during the darkest of times, no matter what negative emotions you feel or the sins you have committed. He loves you endlessly, and will lift you up during these hard times if you look toward Him. No one can suppress negative emotions and thoughts and God understands that! Take a moment to sit with God and ask Him for guidance. He will lead you toward positivity and grace.
If you are struggling to speak to God about your negative feelings, these prayers will help get you started.
