Max Lucado writes —
Where is God when we hurt? Where is he when sleep won’t come? Where is he when we awaken in a hospital bed with pain that won’t subside? He’s right there! He hung on the gallows to prove once and for all, with pierced hands and blood-stained face – that he’s here – that he didn’t create the hurt, but he came to take it away. When you hurt, God hurts with you.
