When we are in the throes of despair,

When we think that all hope is gone,

When our hearts feel empty and hopeless,

That is when Jesus is the closest to us.

He knows how we feel.

He endured emotional and physical pain too.

He lost dear friends to death.

As a child, He scraped His knees a few times or had blistered hands from working as a carpenter.

He suffered a painful death and humiliation on the cross.

He was human, just like the rest of us, and also had to endure death.  His death had a purpose that none other could possibly attain.  His purpose was to carry the sin of the world on His shoulders, to the cross and finally to the grave.

That’s a hard concept for us to understand, but also reassuring. His humanity is proof that He was a man of sorrows.  He experienced the same things we do. He knows the weight of sin and the aloneness of being separated from God, His Father.  He felt the darkness of hell, abandonment and suffering.  Had he not died and been buried, we would never know the joy of His resurrection from death and our coming resurrection to heaven.

He understands our problems and has compassion for them. Though He was God, He came to earth as a man so that He could be one with us. Because of that, we can go to Him anytime with our cares and worries. He is the best friend we can ever hope to have.

This is one of the mysteries of God.  He is three separate entities, yet one God.  Each of the persons of the Godhead is for our benefit.  The Father created us out of love.  He placed us in a perfect environment and wants only what is best for us.  The Son departed His throne in heaven to become one of us – to live with us – to bear our afflictions.  The Holy Spirit is the Comforter, the inspirer, the peace that surpasses all understanding.  Through these three separate parts, united in one being, we have the God of all ages.

With Him, we can do great things.



As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on
