I am so glad that Jesus understands the life of a single mother like myself! And He understands your life, too! Jesus knows all about our struggles. He knew temptation. Poverty. Frustration. Weariness. Disappointment. Rejection. Sorrow. Ridicule. Loneliness. So today, I want to let you know that you have a friend in Jesus, who is intimately acquainted with it all! Christ crawls down into the darkest parts of our lives, wraps His arms around us and comforts us with His love. He injects us with the strength to stand again. Aren’t you so glad that we a friend in Jesus who is never distant from all that we go through? “For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are-yet was without sin” (Hebrews 4:15).
