God’s Love Doesn’t Keep Record of our Wrongs, but it Does Keep Track of our Suffering
As I was doing some reading today, I crossed this passage:
You’ve kept track of my every toss and turn through the sleepless nights,
Each tear entered in your ledger,
each ache written in your book.
Tears filled my eyes as I thought about these words.
We have a God who keeps track of us losing sleep.
A God who catches each tear we’ve cried.
A God who has documented each ache we’ve felt.
It’s easy to wonder whether or not God cares....
He cares more than we could even fathom.
He keeps track of our pain and holds it in own hands.
None of it goes in vain.
That’s the God we have.
That’s our Father.
His love doesn’t keep record of our wrongs, but it does keep track of our suffering.
He doesn’t walk away from us in our pain, He is so intimately close in it.
In fact, He understands it better than we do.
We are never, ever alone.
