I am reminded this morning that Jesus suffers alongside us…He is very well acquainted with grief and suffering. In fact, as Tim Keller says,
“Jesus hates suffering, injustice, evil, and death so much, He came and experienced it to defeat it and someday, to wipe the world clean of it.”
I am reminded today that Trey’s story is not bound to this earth. The Lord has an eternal plan for Trey, one that Trey has embraced, and because Christ has overcome all things, Trey will likewise overcome as well…along with all of us who are in Christ…because of the power of the Resurrection.
As the Scripture says, “For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but one who in every respect has been tempted as we are, yet without sin. Let us then with confidence draw near to the throne of grace, that we may receive mercy and find grace to help in time of need (Hebrews 4:15-16).”
I am just trying to draw near to The Lord today and rest in Him!
