Day 38: Friday, April 12th, 2019

Such great power exists in reflecting on the Passion of Jesus Christ and realizing thathe experienc ed real pain, real despair, and true human emotions. Our God has such profound love for us that He would seek to walk among us and take part in the full
human experience. Our God knows our pain. Our God is not one who rests in a fara-way place unconnected to His creation. He is the one born in a manger and then crucified by those He would seek to save. He is then and now Emmanuel: God with us!
Take some time for personal reflection and ponder this question:
When I face trials in this life, am I truly aware of a God who loves me and understands what I am going through?
