If there’s one thing I’ve learned about suffering it’s that I’m not the first person or the only person to have suffered. Everyone has something. Everyone has a cross.
“… everyone is dealing with something. Maybe they’re not sick, but they might have another trial in their life. I try to put things into perspective: I may not have great health, but I do have a great family. Other individuals may be in perfect health, but they may not live in a supportive home.” read more here.
Suffering, illness, tragedy; they all have the ability to make us feel more isolated, but we are surely never alone in them. Jesus suffered, and He suffers with us. And so do many of our family and friends, even if we do not see it.
