“Jesus wept.” Two little words. But oh, such depths of significance!
Jesus wept with Mary and Martha. The heavy grief in their hearts over the loss of their brother pierced His compassionate heart. He wept with them. He wept for them. He wept with deep anguish in His soul.
And Jesus is the same yesterday, today, and forever. He still weeps. He weeps for you, my friend. Whatever trial storms through your life or your heart, Jesus hears every heartbeat of anguish and fear. He wails with sorrow and bottomless compassion. No one knows more than Him how you are feeling, because He has been to hell and back Himself.
“God has a heart. And it hurts. Not with just a few drops of ache, not just with a slow drip of sadness — His whole massive heart fills, swells, burns with this raw, relentless pain.” ~ Ann Voskamp
I feel moved to leave you this week with these few words. May you ponder those two words – Jesus wept – and remember He still weeps today for you.
May the weeping of Jesus
impact your heart and your life!
Yes! He does care, oh so much!

Beautiful, reassuring, comforting and encouraging words! I love the Ann Voskamp quote too. It’s something we need to remember as we ache inside and long to have someone who knows, identifies with and shares our pain. Great thoughts to meditate on. You always find an apt and moving song to close with too. Thank you, Trudy. xox 🙂
