Feel My Hurt

Sometimes I feel so broken down
And I take to believing that I’m alone in this here
But out of the blue You seem to disprove me
Showing me things in a way I can only describe
As the way You look at these everyday things

So I will run to You
The God who so understands me
You can feel my hurt
You have, You do, and You did
You felt my hurt all in one day
God, You can feel my hurt

The storms blow in and the crashing waves
They pull me under with such incredible ease
It’s almost unbelievable, but still, You know how it feels
When my world seems to be so
Broken, shattered, lost, and falling apart

I will run to You
The God who so understands me
You can feel my hurt
You have, You do, and You did
You felt my hurt all in one day
God, You can feel my hurt

You can take, take
I might break, break
But God, I will hold on to You
Because with all of Your heart
You can feel my hurt

    I like this poem. It’s good to remember that no matter what we’re going through, Christ suffered far more than we have. He was accused, insulted, beaten, and he didn’t even fight back. He probably had more compassion in his pinkie than I have in my whole body… for him to be taking his last few breaths, hanging on a cross, surrounded by people who hated him and for him to say “forgive them.” Now imagine yourself in his place. You’ve been punch, kicked, whipped, spit on, mocked, insulted, and the God who says he loves you is letting all of this happen to you. Now, if I was there, I’d like to think I could say the right words, but the truth is, anger would probably overcome me. Christ didn’t curse them or fight back… he probably could have asked God to rain fire on everyone who had a part in his murder, but he didn’t. He endured the worst kind of pain and the worst kind of hurt, and yet he loved. Now there is someone to run to!
