The intimacy of shared pain.

Today’s challenge – Sorrow

I was talking to a friend yesterday about my spiritual experience with wearing the Belt of Truth, and I made this statement “the Truth is heavy”.  When I spoke those words somewhere in my spirit I knew there was a depth that needed to be explored, but that moment was not the time or place.  This morning in my personal journaling I wrote “I am in a place of sorrow”.

I began to realize that wearing the Belt of Truth; opening my spirit to the Truth of God takes me to a place of heaviness and sorrow.  I can’t just skim the surface…I can’t wear my rose colored glasses…I can’t just smile and nod…I can’t see the battlefield without seeing the pain and casualties.

Once I opened my eyes to the world only visible by Faith, and once I strapped on the Belt of Truth, I began to understand how God’s heart grieves for His creation.  Once I purposed to Stand, and remain with Him in the heaviness and sorrow, He drew me in and we shared an intimacy that comes only through shared pain.

2 Corinthians 1:5 – For just as the sufferings of Christ overflow to us, so also through Christ our comfort overflows.
