Does God Know I'm In So Much Pain
Would it surprise you to know that when you hurtâ€¦God hurts too? He created you. He loves you like crazy and itâ€™s very difficult for Him when things are difficult for you. I know that because Iâ€™m a dad. When my kids are hurting, I hurt. My wife and I didnâ€™t bring them into this world so that they could hurt and experience tough times. But we knew that would be part of life and we hope those times will make our kids stronger.
I think thatâ€™s kind of like it is with our Heavenly Fatherâ€¦the Bible says He loves us and wants whatâ€™s best for us. Of course there will be tough times. We live in a world where things arenâ€™t the way God originally created them to be. We live in a world where...at least for nowâ€¦sin has affected us and caused us to experience pain and hard times.
But I want you to know this: When you feel like no one really caresâ€¦thatâ€™s just not trueâ€¦We care. We care for you even though we donâ€™t know you. We care for you because we have something in common: Weâ€™re human beings and weâ€™re created in Godâ€™s Image.
When I was a kid and went through some really tough things, my dad used to put his arm around me and say, â€œSon, just remember, itâ€™s probably not as bad as you think it is. Whatever it is thatâ€™s got you downâ€¦we can work it out. Trust me.â€? And thatâ€™s what Iâ€™d like you to hear me saying to you right now: Whatever it isâ€¦we can work it out.
Itâ€™s never hopeless because my God is a God of Hope and second chances. No matter whatâ€™s happened to youâ€¦no matter how bad the pain feels right now, itâ€™s not worth doing something terrible to yourself. Why not allow us the privilege of coming alongside of you and offering some help?
