One thing I have experienced a lot of in my life; was the feeling that no one could ever understand or truly care about what I was going through at the time. I think we all have faced moments like these; where the ones that know us the best, just can’t seem to understand what we are going through…which can truly make a person feel lost, in a world of their own.
A couple Bible verses that have helped me through these times, is found in Psalm 142:4-5…and we read… “I looked on my right hand, and beheld, but there was no man that would know me: refuge failed me; no man cared for my soul. 5 I cried unto thee, O Lord: I said, Thou art my refuge and my portion in the land of the living.”
I have come to see one thing in my life…and that is how words become nothing to a person, unless some form of action follows. You know…it’s so easy for someone to spew words out of their mouth that says… “I care and I understand;” but what follows…really makes the difference…and truly helps a person to know whether the other person really understands and cares.
I remember many times in my life, when I would allow these hurtful moments…when I just didn’t feel as if people cared or understood, to truly affect my life…that is, until I came to see how I could relate with a God, who truly did understand my needs and care for me.
One thing about Jesus; is that He will listen and not judge. He will stay with us…and listen, for as long as we need Him…and no matter what we have to say to Him; He will remain and love and care for us. Finding a friend in Jesus, was the greatest thing that I have come to experience in my life…and now, when I need someone to understand what I’m facing…I know He will be there to run to…Someone, who will not only speak words to my heart; but will truly show His love and care for me.
No matter what you may be facing today…and no matter how alone you feel; just know that Jesus understands. He will sit and listen to you, as long as you need Him and He will be there to wipe the tears from your eyes and exchange these moments, for a peace and hope that can be found in no other but Him. Just turn to Jesus right now…for He’s already waiting to listen to your heart!
