The Cry of a Woman

The cry of a woman is like that of no other. It is distinct and heavily weighed. Have you ever cried to the point of exhaustion? Have you ever cried to the point where your wail turns into a whimper because just when you think you’re all cried out…there is yet more? Whether you have experienced a lost of a loved one and/or the heartbreak of broken trust or betrayal…the cry of a woman engulfs the heart like a volcanic Tsunami! The feeling of drowning in one’s own ocean of heartbreak makes chances of survival seem despairingly obsolete.

Some may say, “you’re just too emotional” or “you have to put your emotions in check” but at that time you barely know how to bring your breathing under control and comprehend any form of reality. It’s like having an “out of body” experience because you become disengaged with what was once an active, vibrant life of “your normalcy” to now having your entire world flipped, turned around, and dismantled right before your eyes! Let me walk you through this metamorphosis:
•Physically: palpitations of the heart, nervousness, headache, swollen eyes from crying, stuffy and runny nose, stomach and back in knots, lump in your throat, hyperventilating and pure exhaustion. •Mentally/Psychologically/Emotionally: Comprehension of events seem surreal and is on automatic rewind in your mind. Sensitivity is on high alert. Caged inside for defense protection because everything and everyone “seem” suspect. You wonder in your thoughts, “how am I going to survive THIS?!” Numbness settles in, autopilot operation has kicked in, shut down transaction is now in progress. Emotions now turn “ill” motion because your heart (mind) and body (actions) are operating without your permission. Your thoughts are scattered and your once articulation of conversation has turned into the language of “Scooby Doo”.

Can I just keep it real with you? So before the suggestions of “pray to Jesus, go on a fast, and quote scriptures” start rolling in (while it should be the order of operation) I have to share my “reality” according to the book of Gina – Chapter One. I often shouted, “God, where ARE you? Can’t you see what’s going on??” I prayed and cried and rolled out scriptures expecting a supernatural miracle to take place and all my sorrow to be gone. Ha!! Right! Let me tell you what it did eventually do…as I continued the process of praying, crying, reading and reciting God’s word it drew me closer to Him even if my situation never changed!!

Now I know I shouldn’t leave you hanging like this so just tune in for part two…

    In your article, “The Cry of a Woman” depicts the depths of a soul that has been shattered by the complications and misunderstandings that results from a loss of a loved one. It also illuminates the emotional wreckage of the stages that a woman may go through following this very heartbreaking and personal experience. I admire your candour by dispelling your version or truth from your persepective. I believe that one day when peace like a river (which is from God) does come upon women who have been hurt in relationships she will join with the hymn writer and sing, It is well, it is well, yes it is well with my soul…. yes until then we must continue to talk, share and bond with others who will support us.

    Great insight! Even though God promised to never leave or foresake us, people forget about the “process” we must go through sometimes in order to get to the level He is taking us to. Even when Jesus was separated from the Father on the cross, He cried out “My God My God why have yuo foresaken me.” It was a lonely moment for Him. We will experience those moments as Christians. I like to tell people whenever the Word goes forth two things will happen, you will be tested- this comes from God and you will be temprted- this comes from the enemy. I call it the big squeeze. Whatever is truly in you will come out during those moments that seem like God is not there. This is where our character is shaped. This is where we find out who we really are in Christ. This is where spiritual growth happens. BUT when you come out victorious, your faith will have been tested and tried by the fire abd you will come forth like pure gold.

    Unquestionably believe that which you said. Your favorite
    justification seemed to be on the net the easiest thing to be aware of.
    I say to you, I definitely get irked while people think about worries that they just don’t know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and also defined out the whole thing without having side-effects , people can take a signal. Will likely be back to get more. Thanks
