A lot of people try to “drown” their sorrows. Others try to fill their emptiness with food. Still others drug themselves or engage in human relationships that never completely satisfy. There is only one Comforter who can meet our need: Jesus Christ. Because He understands suffering, He can empathize with us. There’s an old hymn that says, in part, “No one ever cared for me like Jesus…” It’s so true. No one can love as big as Him, give as fully as Him, comfort as effectively as Him. I am so grateful He is only a whisper away when I need Him. If you’re hurting, cry out to Him. He never leaves us comfortless.
