29 Jun: In Need of the Lord’s Embrace

Too often I find myself longing for someone who can make the things I’ve messed up right again and fix my problems. I long for someone to comfort me when I feel the sadness of life. My first reaction towards these longings is convincing myself that I need to toughen up and overcome my insecurities, sadness, and mistakes. How am I gonna get through the rest of life with these kinds of needy feelings? And although it is probably a good idea to confront my issues in some way rather than escape them, I find I often can’t do it on my own. I’m too afraid.
