I can’t sleep. The rain keeps me awake. Or maybe it’s my throbbing legs. They say when you can’t sleep, the best thing to do is talk to the Lord. So I opened my bible and tgis is the verse og the day:
http://bible.com/111/isa.53.3.niv He was despised and rejected by mankind, a man of suffering, and familiar with pain. Like one from whom people hide their faces he was despised, and we held him in low esteem.
How comforting it is that Jesus understands what we are going through. He’s been mistreated as well just like us. He is familiar with pain. He knows about pain. He’s been held in low esteem.
Rejected and alone. Mistreated. In pain. God understands these, too. What’s great is that He is able to defeat all of these trials. He’s victorious. And we can share in this victory only if we accept Him as our Lord and Savior.
We are constantly invited to be in His loving presence.
How comforting it is to know I am not alone–to know that I am loved.
