Alone

It doesn’t matter what you’re dealing with.

One of the most powerful ways to make it worse? Feeling like you’re alone. Like you’re the only one dealing with something like that. Or that nobody cares.

Or both.

Whether it’s actually true or not, really doesn’t matter. Because simply feeling that way hurts. A lot. 

Which is why Sunday’s second reading is so important. It tells us something that’s all too easy to miss.

Everything that can go wrong. Everything that hurts. Jesus gets it.

Because Jesus has been there too.  

Whatever you’re dealing with. Whatever it is, you don’t have to do it by yourself. There’s someone else who has been there.

And He’s waiting for you with open arms.
