In John 11:33-35, it says: (33) Therefore, when Jesus saw her weeping, and the Jews who came with her weeping, He groaned in the spirit and was troubled. (34) And He said, ‘Where have you laid him?’ They said to Him, ‘Lord, come and see.’ (35) Jesus wept.
The first assumption people jump to is that Jesus was sad because his friend died… but that doesn’t make sense, does it?
Have you ever had a friend come to you in deep pain and there was little or maybe nothing you could do, but you looked at them through tears; knowing that their pain was so deep that you grieved for them and with them? I think Jesus wept for the pain of living. He knew he was bringing Lazarus back, didn’t he? He understood the pain of those who were living.
He knows your pain, too sister. Whether you are laying by yourself in a bed and crying, or at a party where everyone’s on a date and you’re smiling and doing your best to enjoy yourself… He sees you. He knows what you’re feeling. Never, ever doubt that. He loves you that much.
Don’t allow doubt to linger. You are loved beyond riches.
