Staring at my computer screen wondering what to write.
I want to say something encouraging, but the words just don’t seem right.
How do you say to someone hurting that you understand their pain? How do you let them know the sun will shine again.
Can I say “I understand” or will they turn away because to them it seems I would never know how deep the sorrow goes.
It isn’t right to say “Just trust God more.” or “Just accept his will.”
So I say the only words I know.
“I care, I see, I’m praying for you.
Your pain is hard, your struggle real.
Your journey long.
You are brave, you are strong.
I may not be able to hug you tight, but I am holding you with all my prayers tonight.
