There are instances in life when you feel all alone. I don’t mean it in literal sense. What I mean by being alone is that you can’t relate yourself with anyone. Not your frenemies, your well-wishers, your relatives, your siblings, or even your parents. It seems like no one gets what you are feeling. It’s very painful where you are not able to express what you feel. And even in the midst of crowd you will feel all alone, like a misfit on this planet. In this competitive, ruthless, aggressive race of moving ahead in life and proving oneself, no one seems to have time and energy for your rantings. It seems like you are static or slowed down and world does not seem to care, it will continue with or without you.

Hold on. There is actually someone who cares about what you feel. Yes! Have you thought of sharing your thoughts, feelings with the One who created this whole world, of which you are a small part.

Even though He already knows what you feel, your feelings, intricacies, complexities more than yourself, He wants to hear it all from you. Just internalize it. The King of all kings. The Owner of all. Your Rabb (Lord) loves to hear your voice. You an insignificant speck in universe are not insignificant to the Creator of this universe. He loves to hear your rantings. He can hear what you speak and He can hear the unspoken!

He is the owner and maintainer of heavens and earth and all in between and of all what we don’t know about. It does not stop Him from listening to your incoherent speech.

Share all your complexities, share what you can’t share with anyone. Share it with Him. He knows. He understands it all, the internal conflicts, the struggles. You may not be able to express it all. Don’t worry about coherence. Just Tell Him. Everything.
