And God Said

My friend Kristy had this posted. I thought it was great... for those with a loss of any kind. This really seems to hit home today.

And God Said

I said, "God, I hurt." And God said, "I know."
I said, "God, I cry a lot." And God said, "That is why I gave you tears."
I said, "God, I am so depressed." And God said, "That is why I gave you Sunshine."
I said, "God, life is so hard." And God said, "That is why I gave you loved ones."
I said, "God, my son died." And God said, "So did mine."
I said, "God, it is such a loss." And God said, "I saw my son nailed to a cross."
I said, "God, but your son lives." And God said, "So does yours."
I said, "God, where are they now?" And God said, "Mine is on My right and Yours is in the Light."
I said, "God, it hurts." And God said, "I know."

Kenz,

What a beautiful way to look at how God views our suffering.

My favorite was when God said, "I know....mine did too."

You know, it is truly incredible what God did for us. When I think of my children and how much I love them, I think, "Of course I would lay down MY OWN LIFE for any one of them." There are a select few people in my life that I think that about.

But, God didn't lay down His own life....He sacrificed the life of his SON. I am not sure that I love anyone that much that I would willingly give MY CHILD up to die in their place. I, perhaps, might give my own life willingly in their place, but I would never choose to let my child die for someone else...I just don't think I could do it.

I think that is an interesting way to look at what God did for us. Not His life, but His Son's. SO powerful to think of that!

Thank you Jesus, for truly knowing our suffering and knowing how to guide us through it!

Love ya girl,
Devin
