Understanding

There is power in the moment that you feel that someone truly understands and empathizes with what you are going through. Knowing that they have been right where you are and they came through the battle just fine, aside from a few cuts and bruises, gives one strength to fight on.

Sometimes it is so difficult to see that we are not alone. Somewhere, someone has experienced the same thing we have. And even if we can't find a "person" who can relate to us, the bible says that Jesus was tested at all points as we are.

He has been there. He has done that. He knows. He understands.

Thank You, Jesus! Help me to remember when I feel all alone that You are with me, and You know how I feel.
