Zephaniah 3:17 says that the Lord "quiets us with His love." He invites us onto His lap. He wraps His arms around us. He sees the hurt. Even when we are over-reacting, He doesn't push us away until we get a grip. His desire is to be with us in those emotional states in order to bring the healing we need from whatever pains us.
Often times we don't recognize His presence with us in the dark times. However, He is there. We need to ask Him to open the eyes of our heart and help us recognize His open arms and invitation to quiet our hurting spirits with His love.
