Yesterday morning when I woke up and heard the awful news about the bombings in Brussels, my heart sank. My heart aches for those poor families and how their lives were changed so fast. I don’t know about you, but it sure brought back the memories and feelings of 9/11. God never promised life would be without difficulties, pain or sorrow.
God never promised life would be without pain or loss of a loved one or other things.
As I think of the events of Holy Week and what is to come later this week. I wonder the thoughts and feelings God had when he sent his only Son to die for our sins. Did the pain crush his chest until he couldn’t breath? How did Jesus feel as the event played all those years ago? The mourning He must have felt as His son laid in a tomb. Even though, He knew that in 3 days he’d rise again.
See, God has been there. He knows the pain and sorrow we feel even before we experience it. I know as human’s that’s hard to understand at times or even in the middle of a storm. But, it’s a promise we can hold onto. God is faithful and always there, we only need to cry out to him.
