Jesus knows how you feel…
He’s been there.
Once, while recovering from a near death experience, I felt so hurt, and so low, that I actually told my son;
“I feel as though God has forsaken me!… I feel bad about saying it, but that’s just how I feel.”
In the severity of my pain and suffering, I felt that God had abandoned me.
My son looked at me with such compassion and said, “It’s OK mom, Jesus knows how you feel.
He knows what it’s like to feel forsaken, because as He was dying on the cross, He said,
“My God, My God, Why have You forsaken me?”
He knows how you feel, but He has not forsaken you.”
This was a tremendous comfort to me, and I hope this brings comfort to you too.
God loves you, and no matter what you’re going through, He knows just how you feel.
joyful in hope,
patient in affliction,
faithful in prayer.”
If life seems at its lowest ebb, because a day’s gone wrong,
Let not your heart be troubled, for a new day soon will dawn.
And we can never be quite sure, just what it has in store,
Since each one is so different, than the one just gone before.
As it penetrates the darkness, with its soft and tranquil beams,
It calms even the most restless soul, and brings new hopes and dreams.
So when a day’s been troubled, and the night is dark and long,
Lift up your fallen spirits, for a new day soon will dawn.
ADONAI is my shepherd; I shall not want.
He makes me lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside still waters.
He restores my soul. He leads me in paths of righteousness for His Name’s sake.
Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff comfort me.
You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies: You have anointed my head with oil, my cup overflows.
Surely goodness and mercy will follow me all the days of my life, and I will dwell in the House of ADONAI forever.”
Psalm 23- TLV
“If you’ve got pain
He’s a Pain Taker
If you feel lost
He’s a Way Maker
If you need freedom or saving
He’s a prison-shaking Savior
If you’ve got chains
He’s a Chain Breaker”
