When I got up this morning to enjoy the Labor day holiday I thought of those loved ones who have gone to be with the Lord. With that in mind let me share 2 eternal truths with you. 1) when we hurt ‘God hurts. God not only knows our pain -He feels our pain. 2) The prophet Isaiah wrote ” For the Lord comforts His people and will have compassion on His afflicted ones ” God loves you and will never forsake you. These truths brought comfort to me and I hope to you as well.
