I had a very unusual experience today. I had a medical test done and it was very painful, so much so I almost had to stop the test. I had a brace attached to my head digging into my scalp and my whole body was cramping up. I prayed and asked God to help me to bare the pain and He helped me. After a short time of being near tears I had a vision of Jesus on the cross with the painful crown of thorns. Then I saw His hands and feet nailed. At that moment though my own pain which in NO WAY compares to His… I felt the suffering Jesus went through for me in a different way. He suffered for me…and for you. The pain, the agony and the humiliation!
Saturday I sang a song at an open mike night and one line of the song said this:
“I don’t know why you would love me, why you would show me, so much mercy, why you would suffer, and die for me, way back, way back, on Calvary,” I tried to sing this line from the deepest part of my heart!
I’m mostly recuperated from today’s ordeal. It showed me a different view of the story of how Jesus saved me that I never expected to experience in such a profound way. I wasn’t happy for the pain….but I very happy about the gain. I gained a deeper respect for the love Jesus has for me.
1 I love the Lord, because He hears My voice and my supplications. 2 Because He has inclined His ear to me, Therefore I shall call upon Him as long as I live.
Thank God we can call on Jesus no matter what pain we are experiencing and He will be there!!!!
