Day 33

EMPATHY

The Lord is close to the brokenhearted

and saves those who

are crushed in spirit.

Psalm 34:18

FROM THE FATHER'S HEART
My child, do you know that when you hurt, I hurt? Pain is no stranger to Me. I have been there, and I understand. I'll walk with you through your fires, and I'll wipe away your tears. When you cannot walk alone, I will carry you. Lean on Me today.

A GRATEFUL RESPONSE
It is You, Lord, who heals my broken heart. You stand nearby, ready to wrap loving arms around me when the hurt be-comes too great to bear. When my dreams are crushed, You, not time, are the great healer. You feel my hurts, Lord—even more than I do.

SIMPLE TRUTH

There are no sorrows greater than our God can heal; there are no hurts deeper than He can feel.
