Jesus Understands


The Lord has been reminding me of these truths…

Jesus understands our tears. He wept.

Jesus understands our sorrow. He loved and grieved.

Jesus understands our trials. He was tested by Satan.

Jesus understands our pain. He was rejected, mocked, beaten, and crucified.

Jesus understands our loneliness. He was betrayed.

Jesus understands our need for God. He was in constant contact with His Father.

Jesus understands our need for friends. He surrounded Himself with twelve.

Jesus understands triumph and new life. He conquered death and the grave.

Jesus understands because He lived it. {Tweet this}

Perhaps you need the reminder today too.

In Christ,
Laura

    1. Hi Laura, I don't know what you're going through today, friend but I'm glad you're holding to God's promises. If it's one thing I'm learning through some very difficult seasons is that God remains faithful. He is good all the time. I pray this comforts you today.
      Blessings!
