Asian woman cryingHer calm exterior cracked and gave way to her raging grief.

She slumped, sighed, then sobbed.

Have you felt that way? The pressures build and like a volcano, they explode.

God knows your pain. Just as He did the Israelites in Exodus 2. He heard their cry in their intense bondage, and their groaning. He saw their affliction and knew their sorrows.

When we think no one cares or understands our grief-we can trust that the Lord wants to give us the gift of relief.

Although I shed my tears in private, they aren’t hidden from my Lord. No walls or doors keep out His all-seeing eyes, but He looks at us with love, not scorn.

It is well put in Psalm 27:7-9 “Hear, O LORD, when I cry with my voice: have mercy also upon me, and answer me. When You said, seek my  face; my heart said unto thee, Thy face, LORD will I seek. Hide not thy face far from me; put not they servant away in anger: thou hast been my help; leave me not, neither forsake me, O God of my salvation.”

He knows when something special happens to us widows, and we long to share it with our husband.

However, the Lord is always available, and He never hands us to someone who is on call.

He knows everything about my woes and my joys and they both affect Him.

It’s wonderful when we wait on the LORD and have good courage, as it says in Psalm 27:14.

Thank you, Lord, for knowing our pain.
