Excerpt: When Life Takes What Matters 4

Sometimes I get this feeling that God doesn't get it.  He doesn't understand how much it hurts.  Taken from this book, I found this quote very comforting:

Even though we know that loss and separation cannot harm us eternally, the hurt on this earth can at times be almost unbearable.

No one understands this better than Jesus. After hanging on a cross for three hours in utter darkness, suspended by spikes through his hands and feet while the accumulated sins of humankind were heaped upon His bleeding back, our Lord cried out through parched and swollen lips, "My God, My God, why have you forsaken me?"
