We do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses…

It comforts me today to know that no matter what I face, no matter what my family faces, no matter what you face,

we are not alone and we have Someone who…“gets” us.

He walks with us and says, “I’ve been where you’ve been and I understand.”

I understand your fear.

I understand your doubt.

I understand your questions.

I understand your tears.

I understand your pain.

I understand your struggles.


I also came so that you could walk free from all of them.

I want you to grasp your freedom

I want you to embrace joy.

I want you to live fully NO MATTER WHAT.

I want you to trust me.

I want to wipe away your tears.

I want to hold your pain.

I want to fight your struggles for you.

For me, on this Friday morning as I head to early duty at school, I am comforted to know that I do not leave my home alone.

Praying that all of you fill His presence in a mighty way today,
