I know enough of God to know He loves us the same when it hurts – when pain comes. I know He is still loving and good. And thank you Lord that I have learned this before. But can I just be honest and say the knowing doesn’t stop the ache in the heart from coming.
We are Holy Spirit filled but we are still flesh. We are going to have to feel.
There is something to be said about going on about your living and finding the happy moments to smile at and count as gifts. But a person still has to grieve and not fear the pain. And Jesus absolutely cares all about it.
