When you are in emotional turmoil and distress, verbalizing your thoughts and feelings lets off steam. Talking to someone who cares about you and understands you melts away stress, tension, and emotional pain. Pouring your heart out to your loving Father and powerful King, Creator and Sustainer of the universe is a wonderful way to release the negative energy that you are feeling. After pouring out your heart, your heart becomes lighter.
(Growth Through Tehillim: Exploring Psalms for Life Transforming Thoughts, p. 142)
