Sometimes you just "get it"

This morning during my devotions, I was praying about how I worry about my children and fear that they may someday turn away from me and away from the faith that we are working so hard to build in them and how heartbroken I would be. Then, suddenly, it hit me. I sat there with tears streaming down my cheeks because God was revealing to me the fact that He faces this every single day...with millions of His children. I realized that He feels the same heartache and heartbreak that we do when these things happen...only more. Why haven't I ever really thought of it like that? I just love how God reveals things and Himself to us to assure us that He understands and cares. We are so blessed to serve such a loving and caring Father. Take a moment and thank Him today that He understands us and cares about every fear, every worry, every hurt, just everything that we experience. We are truly blessed to be His children.

I couldn't agree with you anymore... if it hurts us can you imagine how hurt he is?! :(
