“How does… Jesus show his love for us and others?” This was a question we were supposed to think about for Sunday School. What if you happen to be in a season, like me, when it seems like Jesus is silent and I don’t feel like praying? How does Jesus show He loves me?
I showed up at my friend’s house for a sleepover, in my pajamas with tear stains on my face. Then I proceeded to sit on her couch and cry. When your world has been turned upside down and inside out, and you know you need to forgive and let go, but you are still so very, very hurt and angry, what else can you do?
When you sit in a Sunday School class and cry… When your roommate gets home to find you an emotional mess… When you pray in your car and there is no answer… How does Jesus love?
He is silent. Yes. I feel that. But I have felt His love through His people nevertheless.
