About a hurting heart for others…

Colossians 3:12 Therefore, as God's chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. (NIV)

There are times when we have a heart hurting so bad for others we do not have words to express our pain. When we have a hurting heart for others, we must see Jesus in our mind's eye and in our heart. We must, in the times of our weeping for others, see Christ holding them in the palm of His hand. Praying for a person for whom we hurt can be a miraculous gift to the person who needs the Lord's presence. When it seems we are helpless on our own, God is not helpless to act. As we weep for others, as we hurt for them, we must take our weeping and hurting to the heart of Christ. When another person is hurting, we may not be able to take away their pain but Christ can. When we are dealing with the hurt we feel for others, we can open our heart and life to Christ so He can use us in whatever way He wills. When we open our heart to Christ, when we hurt for others, He is then able to give us the ability to speak words of comfort, words of solace, and words of enduring love to soothe the pain of the person we hold in our heart.
