“Tell God” – Francois Fenelon

Tell God all that is in your heart, as one unloads one’s heart, its pleasures and its pains, to a dear friend.  Tell God your troubles, that God may comfort you; tell God your joys, that God may sober them; tell God your longings, that God may purify them; tell God your dislikes, that God may help you conquer them; talk to God of your temptations, that God may shield you from them: show God the wounds of your heart, that God may heal them.  If you thus pour out all your weaknesses, needs, troubles, there will be no lack of what to say.  Talk out of the abundance of the heart, without consideration say just what you think.  Blessed are they who attain to such familiar, unreserved intercourse with God. –Francois Fenelon
