Been there done that

crosses

When are going through a tough time in life, one that seems hopeless, it is good to talk with someone who has “Been there done that.”  Paul said: “For we do not have a High Priest who cannot sympathize with our weaknesses, but was in all points tempted as we are, yet without sin.”  (Hebrews 4:15).  Jesus can sympathize and empathize with our weaknesses, and the times when we feel weak because of grief. 

Author Joanna Weaver said:  “When you’re going through a difficult time, nothing means more than having someone come alongside who understands what you’re going through.  “Jesus wept” is famous as the shortest verse in the Bible (John 11:35), but to me the real power of that two-word passage from the story of Lazarus is the reassurance that Jesus understands what life is like for us.  He doesn’t ask anything of us that He wasn’t willing to do Himself, and He promises to be with us in all we have to go through.”

In the story in Exodus about the Hebrews being in the bondage of slavery it says:  “God saw the people of Israel—and God knew.” (Exodus 2:25 ESV)

He knew… He knows… Turn to Him in time of grief and find that…“God is our refuge and strength, A very present help in trouble.” (Psalms 46:1)

He is right there with you, just reach out to Him through prayer. Pour out your heart to Him, and He will give you hope in the midst of grief.
