He Knows

There is this song sung by Jeremy Camp. It is called “He Knows”. I used to listen to it while I was growing up. Now as I look at the lyrics, I can see just how relatable this song is to my own life. Towards the beginning of the song are these words:

All the bitter weary ways, endless striving day by day, you barely have the strength to pray, in the valley low, how hard your fight has been, how deep the pain within, wounds that no one else has seen, hurts too much to show, all the doubt you're standing in between, and all the weight that brings you to your knees….

He knows, He knows, every hurt and every sting, He has walked the suffering,

He knows, He knows, let your burdens come undone, lift your eyes up to the One, who knows...He knows!

I can really feel the pain and joy of these words because I lived them! Let me take you back to my life in 2017. I was such a mess mentally. I would go to my bedroom and close the door. I would lie down on my bed cry for what felt like hours! I felt alone, so completely alone. Nobody knew what I was going through or would have even guessed that I was on so much pain. They couldn’t see my inner struggles and turmoil. The self-hatred, the thoughts that I was messed up, that things would be better if I wasn’t around and that I was only a problem. I felt incompetent and thought that everybody else around me felt the same way about me.

I never spoke about the inner struggles that I was facing to anyone. I felt like I had no one to go to. Yes, I had some good friends who I spent lots of fun times with, but we never really talked about big struggles. And I never spoke about them at home, so I was alone. Or so I thought...

I later realized that these feelings of inadequacy and this deep loneliness were some of the greatest gifts that I could have received. This is because it was when I had no one that I could go to, when I lay in bed sobbing, that I turned to prayer. I would pray for help or go to the Bible to fight the thoughts or anger in my mind. If I wasn’t alone, if I didn’t struggle with myself, I wouldn’t have fallen on my knees and poured out my heart to God. If I didn’t have those struggles, I wouldn’t have met God in that special way!

So, in short, I’ve been there like so many others have. The endless day by day fight, the low times, the pain that no one else could see, all of my doubts, and the pain that brought me to my knees. My smile was a façade and I was ashamed of my tears. I had been told time and again that I was too emotional and cried too much, but maybe my tears were a gift too...

Yet despite all of my suffering, I was never alone...God always knew what was happening. He saw everything. He went through the pain and loneliness with me that I was experiencing. I now realize that I need to give my burdens to the Lord. I need to look up to the Cross and surrender to Him who surrendered His life for me. I need to know that there is never a moment that He has not seen and that He has not been aware of. He was always with me and He always will be.

And He is always there for you too! You are not alone! HE KNOWS!!!
