Reflect: On the cross, Jesus embraces the deepest suffering. His beaten and nailed flesh agonized for hours. His heart was also broken with the tremendous pain of despair.
“My God, My God, why have you forsaken me?” are perhaps the most dramatic words he ever spoke. No matter the depth of our stress, pain, and suffering, we can know we are not alone. We have a God who knows that pain, lived that pain, and redeemed that pain.
You are loved by him. Draw near to that love today.

Prayer: Jesus, I love you. The cross is a gift to me. Thank you for going through everything you suffered. I surrender to you my suffering. Help me to give you everything that I might be able to receive with open hands your love. Amen.
