I Don’t Understand What You’re Going Through. Proverbs 14

“I understand what you’re going through.”

How many times have you said those words to someone who was hurting? I’m sure you had good intentions. I have as well. But the reality is, we don’t always fully understand what someone else is experiencing. I don’t fully understand what a person who is suffering with depression is going through. While I have lost loved ones, I don’t fully understand what others who have also lost loved ones are going through. While we both have lost someone dear to us, everyone has their own grief and sorrow.

“The heart knows its own bitterness, and a stranger does not share its joy.”

Proverbs 14:10

I don’t know what you’re going through. I can and will encourage you. I can and will pray for you. But every heart has their own grief or bitterness. But here’s the good news. God knows what you’re going through. Therefore, we can always turn to Him.

I CAN DO and SO CAN YOU. Life is all about having the right kind of attitude. We will face challenges. We have to decide how we will respond. Getting an ICD (Internal Cardio-Verter Defibrillator) in 2010 forced me to make a decision about my mindset. I decided that I CAN DO. What about you? Let's go.
