I have found a wonderful devotion series online by Family Life, www.familylife.com, which addresses this very issue. Each week, I will be sharing my own thoughts with you, along with a new devotion from their series, in the hopes that helps you on the journey to acknowledging and accepting more for your life.
Last week, in the first step of accepting that there is more to your life, we looked at how you are not alone. Today’s devotion takes us on the next step of our journey in accepting more by focusing on how God sees and understands your pain. I know, I know…..when you are in that deep dark place of difficulty, pain or loss, you sometimes think that no one could ever understand what you are feeling. I felt such despair as a teenager when I found out the truth about surviving an abortion, and I can honestly say that no one but God brought me through that dark place, no matter how much I tried to distance myself from my pain, which distanced me from Him. Luckily for me, luckily for all of us, He never leaves our side, no matter how we try to run from Him. God sees our pain and He understands it. Jesus has experienced great pain and suffering, Himself.
