Strengthened to Suffer 

   And there appeared to him an angel from heaven, strengthening him.
   Luke 22:43

For one fleeting moment immense joy must have leaped within Christ’s soul as the Father’s hand touched him.

This was a message from home.

Heaven was behind him. He was forsaken, but not disowned. His Father was there, somewhere in the darkness.

His loud cries and tears had not been unnoticed.

Lisa,
I haven't heard of this book. Perfect for us to think about right now.

That's one of the most blessed things about suffering, though we dread the suffering itself -- the reassurance that He is with us, "somewhere in the darkness."

"This was a message from home." -- that touched my heart. I never looked at it quite that way before.
