Well, this post isn’t about crying. Sorry. It’s about allowing our heart/soul/mind (whatever you want to call your inner place) to be touched in unexpected ways and letting that moment speak to you and do its thing.
To borrow from Duy Anh Nhan Duc, under the apparent fragility of doubt there is a vigorous and skillful soul that is untamed, free and wild. The church would do well to recognize this and find a way to be comfortable with it.
I offer myself up as an example hoping that it can be an encouragement to you. This was specific to me and about one thing in particular. For you it can be something else. Life being what it is and the last year having been so strange, is it possible you’ve latched on to one thing and given it more power over you than it deserves? If you were to take a moment and take a step back, can you identify any overwhelming negative feelings and thoughts toward an issue, or someone? Ask yourself, what is the cost of that “obsession” in your daily life? Is it perhaps time for some form of realignment?
