I am so glad that Jesus understands the life of a single mother like myself.. I am so glad that He never leaves me alone. Aren’t you glad that Jesus understands your life as well? Aren’t you glad that He never leaves you alone? Or do you not know or feel that He understands? Well, He does. Jesus knows temptation. Poverty. Frustration. Weariness. Disappointment. Rejection. Sorrow. Ridicule. Loneliness. He has been to all of these places in life so yes, He knows and He understands. Christ never stands distant from any pain.. He can crawl into the darkest places of our lives, comfort us and give us strength to stand again. As for me, I don’t know how I would function without having Christ in my life or without having a relationship with Him. I have been in some dark and messy places but Christ stepped right in my darkness and messiness. If you are in darkness or have some messiness going on in your life, know that you are not alone. You have the Best Friend along beside you who wants to wrap His Loving Arms around you and infuse you with His Strength. Will you let Him? “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).
