I had an epiphany today.
In the kitchen.
Thinking about my grandkids.
They are both going through some pretty tough things.
I said to my husband, “I would do anything to take their hard and hurt. Anything.”
And, BAM – it hit me and I began to cry.
Hubs looked at me and said, “What just happened?”
I reminded him of what had happened over the weekend and how we hurt for one and just wanted to make it all better – to fix it.
That is exactly what Jesus did. He told Father – I can’t bear to see my brothers and sisters suffer – Yes,I’m going to do it. I’m going to take their shame and their sin and their hurt and the misunderstandings and the unfair accusations and their broken hearts and their suffering – I cannot let this cup pass from me. O God, not my will but Yours.
Love so pure.
It makes me hurt.
Thank You, Lord Jesus.
