Sooo many things have been happening in my life now. So many tears shed in the past few days. Emotional roller coaster. And I’m not just PMSing. It feels like the world magically conspired to intentionally hurt my feelings. And of course, you and I know it’s not that way. But it sure feels like it!
On our way home some nights ago, what was supposed to be a relaxing walk became an intense emotional outburst. We all have struggles, don’t we? One particular aspect that is bringing me down lately is suffering the consequence of someone else’s wrong action. And it’s driving me nuts. Hubby reminded me that in spite of all that is happening, (good or bad), we have to be thankful always.
… give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.
1 Thessalonians 5:18
“But it was not my fault! Why do I have to suffer? I do not deserve this!” I angrily told him.
With that, Hubby replied… “Tell that to Jesus. Because He did not deserve it either!”
There was nothing else I could say but just cry uncontrollably. He was right. Jesus didn’t deserve to die on the cross to save me from my sins. He did not deserve the crown of thorns, the whipping, the beating, the shame. He did not deserve all of them. But He did endure them all. Sometimes, all we see are the struggles we are going through without realizing that Jesus suffered MUCH MORE than what we are experiencing.
After that incident, I became a lot more thankful to Jesus (for saving me from my sins and for all the other blessings I enjoy daily). I can’t really say that I never get hurt or cry anymore. I still feel pain once in a while but with a different perspective now. =)
I’m not sure I’ve shared this before. Anyway I’d like to share this video again with you… and remind us of what God has done for us…
God loves you.
What has God been teaching you lately?
