This beautiful thought comes from Jocelyn at We Talk of Christ, We Rejoice in Christ. (Read the whole post here.)
As I look around me and think of the suffering of others, my friend who recently lost her mother, the many children who were victims of abuse at the hands of evil, power and lust-hungry men, the woman who has seen her dreams of bearing a child dashed by miscarriage, the young woman who suffers of a broken heart because of the infidelity of her companion… I know that Jesus Christ
has actually experienced their pain. I don’t know the specifics of how, but I know that he has.
And strangely enough, there is great joy and thanksgiving in knowing that [the Savior] knows. He understands, and that he can and will comfort us as we walk through our trials in mortality.
