Jesus wept:day five

[Read & meditate on John 11.35. What would it mean to have the Creator of the universe weeping with you?]

I ‘m not alone. Even in my deepest pain, the most significant Person in the universe is right there with me. Wow! It seems to be an incredible display of love and intimacy. The people who can mourn best with me are the people who know me best, love me most–this is the One who weeps with me. I don’t need to hide my tears, He sees them and shares them. This is an incredible comfort. It moves God from an ambivalent distance to an intimate closeness. This is the God I need.
