One of the wisest statements I ever read said that feelings must be owned before they can be disowned. People who make the psychological approach of “stuffing their feelings” do themselves a disservice. They avoid hard reality instead of working through it.

Joseph Scriven, whose fiancée was killed the night before their wedding, rose up on the wings of his faith and wrote this beloved song:

What a friend we have in Jesus, all our sins and griefs to bear.

What a privilege to carry everything to God in prayer.

O what peace we often forfeit; O what needless pain we bear,

All because we do not carry everything to God in prayer.

Are we weak and heavy laden, cumbered with a load of care?

Precious Savior, still our refuge, take it to the Lord in prayer.

In His arms He’ll take and shield thee. Thou wilt find a solace there
