He Will Never Forsake You

Today, I’m in pain.  But it’s on days like these, I turn to Jesus...

Hi, I’m Joni Eareckson Tada and today, I’m in pain.  But it’s on days like these, I turn to Jesus — the Man of Sorrows.  He was flogged, beaten, and hung up on a cross like meat on a hook.  For six grueling hours, Jesus endured excruciating, harrowing pain — to the point of crying out, “My God, why have you forsaken me?”  And it’s why when I experience terrible pain, when I, too, toy with the thought that God has forgotten me, forsaken me, I remind myself that I am not alone.  Jesus bore abandonment by His Father, so that he might turn and say to me, "I will never forsake you, I will never leave you!"  It's a precious reminder for you, too, friend.  Because whatever your hardship — whether it be chronic pain, a broken marriage, a wayward son, or a pink slip — remember that God sees your misery, He hears your cry, He KNOWS your pain.  And He gives you power to see you through it.
