Surely he took up our pain and bore our suffering, yet we considered him punished by God, stricken by him, and afflicted. But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed. Isaiah 53:4-5 (NIV)
You are not alone. God is right there with you. God is in the struggle with you. The Bible tells us to “Cast our cares on God because He cares for you.”
Sometimes the burden is too great. At times we need support. The strength of others can help us carry on. Where can you plug into people who have been through what you’re facing? How can God use you after you’ve come through the other side? Will you allow others to help you? Will you in return help others? Don’t waste your experience. Share the pain and then the joy.
