We are able to hide our hurts in Him. We can go to God for consolation, and comfort at anytime. No matter what has happened, we can take our deepest disappointments to Him. He understands, and He cares. He feels the same sorrow. We are His children, and the thing that has hurt us, has hurt Him as well.
Even in our togetherness with the Father, the pain may not disappear completely. The sadness we feel is real. It is not something we imagine, or fabricate. If we did not care so deeply in the first place – whether we failed to get a job we wanted, or we learned that a loved one is in distress – we would not experience such intense torment. That is the very reason God weeps for us, when we are in distress: He does not like to see us this way, because He loves, and cares for us.
He grieves with us, and for us, during times of trouble. The pain that we experience, and the pain that He feels, are one in the same. We mourn together, because we are alike. What bothers us, also bothers Him. He created us in His image; He made us like Himself, with His emotions, and feelings.
Whenever you are hurting, go to the One who understands. The God, who gave birth to you. He knows you better than anyone on earth. Not only will He share your grief, but He will reassure you that everything will be okay. He is your Father, and He is in control of each situation. Even when you feel lost, and lonesome, you are never alone.
