I saw this video on the profiles of many of my Facebook friends recently, but never took time to watch.

I just watched it. And I cried. Of course I cried!

As I watched, I thought it’s a vivid picture of us. I’ve definitely been the one lying there writhing in agony but I think he pictures the hurt of our entire family not just me.

Isn’t God so like this to come along side us as this father did. I was thankful to see the video make that correlation.

So often, we want to accuse God of hurting us and leaving us in our pain. I wonder why we think that? God loves us so much more than any earthly parent can love us.

Luke 7:11
If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?

    Wow, Lizzie — it brought me to tears, too, from both the father’s view as well as the son’s. Thankfully God is there not just when we fall, but all along the way.
