God Cares When We Are Hurting 

One day while lying down with a headache and throat pains, I started reflecting on this particular question “Do we know how important we are to God?” He cares so much about every detail of our life. He cares about our thoughts, feelings, and emotions. In fact, what we are going through is so important to Him that He records every sorrow and collects the tears we’ve shed. 

I started wondering why God would record our sorrows and collect our tears. Then it came to me, everything that affects you matters to Him. He is your Vindicator. He’s keeping an account of every wrong that’s ever been done to you so that He can make up for every single one of them. He wants to restore everything that has ever been stolen. He wants to heal every hurt and pain and give you an awesome testimony. 

Today, don’t forget God cares about the things that concern you. He cares about the things that hurt you. He is close to the broken-hearted and wants to bring you peace and comfort. Turn to Him and receive His love. Let Him bring healing to your heart and restoration to your soul. 

“You keep track of all my sorrows. You have collected all my tears in your bottle. You have recorded each one in your book.” (Psalm 56:8, NLT) 

Let’s Pray 

Yahweh, thank You for loving me and for caring about the things that concern me. Today, I choose to give You every hurt, pain, and sorrow, knowing that You will make all things new and right in Your time. Father, I also give you my emotional pain; those negative feelings of my past and present. Please God, never leave me. You’re the only one I can trust and count on today and always, in Jesus’ name. Amen.
