A world of suffering.
Interesting how He responds, isn't it?
He dignifies it!
When our Father fully engages in His children's activity, it's a complete "game-changer." His presence changes the nature, focus, and outcome of everything!
His touch and energetic encouragement resurrect our perspective. His dignity transforms us!
So, by entering into our suffering, He gives it dignity by making it His own.
No longer meaningless misery. Now, meaningful ministry.
No longer solitary suffering. Now, shared sacrifice.
No longer the cruel chaos. Now, creative change.
STRENGTH FOR THE JOURNEY
When the Father/King weeps with us, we become different. We see our worth in His suffering. The dignity He brings to our pain transforms us. We begin to see ourselves through His tear-filled eyes. In the mirror of His loving gaze, we see who we are -- beloved children that have His love in spite of anything the enemy throws at us.
We experience that His grace is sufficient.
