It Hurts!

“But it hurts so bad!”

Have you ever tried to comfort someone and had them cry those words on your shoulder?  Have you ever spoken those words in a tearful slobber?  I’ve done both, because life just isn’t fair at times!  People are wicked to each other, and frankly, few seem to care!  Oftentimes, even those who care don’t seem like they’ve really ever been through the same things you’ve been through.  How could they really understand unless they’ve been there?  We can take great comfort in knowing that Jesus lived through every type of pain possible, and did it all without striking back at His oppressors.  He too cried, but not for Himself.  He cried for those who would murder Him, and for those who needed comfort.  There is nothing man or beast can do to you that Jesus cannot understand.

“I, even I, am he who comforts you.  Who are you that you fear mortal men, the sons of men, who are but grass, that you forget the Lord your Maker, who stretched out the heavens and laid the foundations of the earth, that you live in constant terror every day because of the wrath of the oppressor, who is bent on destruction?  For where is the wrath of the oppressor?  The cowering prisoners will soon be set free; they will not die in their dungeon, nor will they lack bread.”  Isaiah 51:12-14

In Christ,
