Jesus Weeps With You
When was the last time you wept into your pillow at night, thinking no one cared? Is the pain so deep and the hurt so great that you cry night after night? In your misery and loneliness, do you think Jesus is emotionally detached? That he just doesn't care? Or that he is simply too busy to notice? Or that he is somewhat callous since He sees a lot of pain that's worse than yours? Or that He couldn't possibly understand how you feel? Or that He's not concerned enough to meet your needs?
Did you know that Jesus weeps with you? Did you know He puts all your tears in a bottle because they are precious to Him? (Psalms 56:8) He has said in all your afflictions, He Himself is afflicted. Why? Because He understands! And He loved you!
Your suffering is His. Your grief is His, Your tears on his face! ~Anne Graham Lotz~
