“Indeed He was ill and almost dead. But God helped him and me too, so that I would not have more sadness.”

–Philippians 2:27

Compassion is the word that comes to mind as I meditate on the above verse. Jesus cares. He cares about our sadness. He takes notice of the things that cause us sorrow.

You keep track of all my sorrows.
    You have collected all my tears in your bottle.
    You have recorded each one in your book.

Psalm 56:8 (NLT)

In our pain and suffering it’s easy to forget that God is compassionate. We may not understand the bumps in the road or why God allows things to remain as they are for a time. His ways are above our ways and His thoughts are above our thoughts. (Isaiah 55:8-9) However, He is compassionate and kind. Therefore, God also works on our behalf to minimize or alleviate our sorrows. He can place people on our path to care for us. He can send us what we need when we need it, He may heal, and He, Himself. is willingly available for consultation and comfort without a formal appointment.

Jesus is Compassionate and Wants to Help. ❤

When He went ashore He saw a great crowd, and He had compassion on them and healed their sick.

Mathew 14:14

 “Come to me, all of you who are tired and have heavy loads, and I will give you rest. Accept my teachings and learn from me, because I am gentle and humble in spirit, and you will find rest for your lives. The burden that I ask you to accept is easy; the load I give you to carry is light.”

Matthew 11:28-30 (New Century Version)

  1. Thank you for this reminder. It is a much needed one. Life can be hard to bear. But knowing that Jesus has compassion for what we are going through brings comfort. ♥️ (Sorry if you get a comment from me twice. I am apparently having issues. Lol 😁)


    1. I did recieve 2 messages from you. 😆 No, problem Bridget. Knowing that Jesus has compassion and wants to be our strong tower we can run into and our light house when it’s difficult to see where we’re headed, really is a comfort. ❤
