A lot of times when we go through hard times we feel alone.
We feel like even though we open up and tell someone we trust what is wrong that they just don’t get it. It feels like no matter how much comfort or support we get from them that they just can’t understand how horrible or painful the thing we are going through is. And the truth is that it probably is true that they don’t understand. And it probably is truth that they won’t be able to help you the way you need to be help.
However, I do want to encourage you in this post. My goal is not to say that you will never be understood. In fact, my goal is the very opposite. I believe that Jesus Christ died on a cross two thousand years ago. I believe that he was sinless and perfect. And when he died on that cross he died for all the sins that we have done and will do. But why am I telling you this? The fact is that when Jesus died on that cross he FELT ALL the pain that you are feeling and much more. The struggle that you are going through he KNOWS what you are feeling because he felt it too. On that cross.
His death is our biggest comfort because he not only freed us from sin but he also has gone through all that we are going through. Those hard days that you are going through right now or that you have gone through, Jesus has gone through it too. He suffers through it with you. He understands your pain and suffering more than any other person can understand. He understands it even better than you do.
Romans 5:8 says: “but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” (ESV)
And Isaiah 41:10 says
“fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God; I will strengthen you, I will help you, I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” (ESV)
Hopefully these verses comfort you through your hard times. Remember that if you are struggling you can ALWAYS go to God and pray or read the Bible (or do both!!), because he will give you peace, comfort, grace, and love that you need to keep going.
As always thanks for reading! ❤
