Downtrodden. Disappointed. Hurt. Dismayed. Have you ever ached in places you didn't know existed, feeling like a punching bag, being beat up by life? 

Perhaps a friend turned their back on you this week. Maybe those feelings of loneliness are at an all time high, or you may have suffered a recent loss. Whatever the reason, the damage is real, the tears are wet, and the sadness stings. You weep and weep as you come to the realization that some things in this world will break your heart and break you down. Some things will leave you shattered and confused, crushing your spirit if you let them. 

This is a painful place to be friends. I understand because I'm there. As I process these emotions, vulnerable and raw, I’m hit with this glorious truth: 

God knows.

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

God is with us every step of the way and all our trials and sorrows are significant to Him. He has not forgotten you, sweet sister, so allow Him to wrap you up in His loving arms, where He can wipe away your every tear. He knows.
