Empathy In The Center of Crises

Empathy, in the center of crises, bludgeons!

How can we carry on when our loved ones’ suffer?

If we could anesthetize ourselves into utter numbness, bearable might wax our lives despite witnessing their misery.

The only way to move forward knowing our dear ones’ grief, is to hope that lack of sensation buffers their affliction. Maybe their anguish is not the horrific state we reckon. We must trust in God and know that things are not always as they appear. He understands!

Empathy In The Center of Crises
Things to Consider:

1). Might their feelings not shake them as do our own, and thus, they are incapable of torment, to this same intolerable degree?

2). Are they familiar with misery, and yearn in an unconscious plight for this fate, and put themselves in harm’s way?

3). Is what we consider as immense despair not a grievance to others?

4). What if these miseries are preparing them for battle, later on, which they will conquer (because of present suffering)?

5). Suffering for God (when called to do so), is worth the pain for Eternal Glory where ‘memories of tears get wiped away’.

6). God knows what he is doing!

We are not helpless in other’s sorrow; we can pray for them through Jesus’ Name, Amen!

Isaiah 55:8-9

“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, and your ways are not my ways,” says the LORD.  “For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts.”

I love Him! He knows what He is doing! He is cool!

      The LORD is good to those who wait for him, to the soul that seeks him.
