When No One Understands

Have you ever gone through a time of trials and gotten really discouraged? Maybe you felt as if no one knew or really understood just how much you hurt. Perhaps you were really downhearted and just needed some encouragement. I have had many times like that, where I felt I needed some comfort and understanding. Often I would get that extra encouragement from my friends in the form of a phone call, an e-mail, or an offer to help if help was needed. However, there have been times in my life when I felt that the Lord was the ONLY one who could really understand. At those times I had to go to Him and let Him encourage and love me.

Praying Biblical Virtues 30 Day

when no one understands

There are several things that I do when I am feeling that the Lord is the only one Who understands.

1. I sing songs that bring me comfort.

A couple of my favorites are “No One Understands Like Jesus”, and “Does Jesus Care”? Often I cry as I sing them, but the tears bring healing as I think of the fact that Jesus DOES understand and care.

2. I read God’s Word and find comfort. My favorite passage has been Psalm 139.

The Lord knows when I’m down and understands my thoughts. He is acquainted with all my ways – all I do, say, or feel. Every time I read this chapter I am overwhelmed with an awareness of how special I am to Him, and just how much He does understand ALL about me. I love verse 10: “Even there (wherever I am emotionally and physically) his hand will lead me and HOLD me.” What a comfort!

Another favorite of mine is Psalm 94:19: “In the multitude of my thoughts within me thy comforts delight my soul.”

3. I just take time to talk it all out with the Lord.

You know, it seems kind of elementary to say that, but it’s something that I forget to do sometimes. I get so busy worrying about things and trying to figure them out, that I forget to go to God with my needs. Psalm 61:2 says, “From the end of the earth will I cry unto thee, when my heart is overwhelmed.” Psalm 62:8 encourages us to pour out our heart before Him. God is a refuge for us.

When my cares and problems burden me and weigh me down, I can just go to Him with all of those thoughts and feelings, and pour them out before Him. After telling the Lord all about it, I don’t seem quite so overwhelmed with it all, and I have more of a peace in my heart.

4. I sit still and let God love me.

Sometimes even those who are close to us don’t fully understand our feelings and needs. But God does, and He longs to comfort us. Often I go to the Lord and tell Him, “Lord, I need your love right now. Hold me in your arms and comfort me.” Other times I sing the song “Sheltered in the arms of God”. I love to picture Him reaching out to gently shelter me in His arms, and reassure me that I’m in His care, and everything is going to be okay.

I’m so glad that in times of difficulty and trials in my life I have a Heavenly Father I can go to Who understands my needs!

  1. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting
    my own weblog and was curious what all is required to get setup?
    I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a
    pretty penny? I’m not very internet savvy so I’m not
    100% certain. Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated.
    Appreciate it

  2. I have to thank you for the efforts you have put in writing this
    blog. I really hope to check out the same high-grade blog posts from
    you later on as well. In fact, your creative writing abilities has motivated me to get my own blog now
    😉
