I hear so often “You just don’t know what I’m going through”, or “you don’t understand”. Many times that’s used as an excuse to continue to stand behind the wall that you’ve built. However I do believe that I truly don’t understand everything. I have never been in a divorced home so I don’t understand what you may feel. I have never experienced the loss of a parent or sibling. I don’t have an understanding of what you are feeling on the inside. Each one of us have a different story, we come from different backgounds and situations, different cultures. Sometimes we feel isolated in our problems. Like we are the only one that can truly understand. The good news is that Jesus knows exactly what you are going through because He went through it as well. Jesus experienced everything we will ever experience when He was on the cross. Jesus put that feeling to death for us, so that we can overcome it!
Hebrews 4:14 So then, since we have a great High Priest who has entered heaven, Jesus the Son of God, let us hold firmly to what we believe. 15 This High Priest of ours understands our weaknesses, for he faced all of the same testings we do, yet he did not sin. 16 So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive his mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it most.
What are some struggles you have in your life that have made you feel isolated?
(I know this is a hard thing to talk about but this is where we as Christians can help each other!)
