“He Understands,” New Era, Jan. 2007, 43

He Understands

As I was listening to the hymn “I Know That My Redeemer Lives” (Hymns, no. 136), I was comforted by the words, “He lives to hear my soul’s complaint.” I had never thought anyone would live to hear another’s complaint.

I began to realize that because I had experienced pain and sorrow, I had been privileged to feel and understand a little of what Jesus went through as He atoned for my sins.

He understands my pains and sorrow because He has felt them.

Now, as I pray, I feel closer to my Savior because I know He truly cares and understands everything I am experiencing.
