Today I grieve. I grieve for a young woman whose innocence was violently taken from her. And it hurts. It hurts to watch someone you love suffer. It hurts when there's nothing you can say or do to reverse what has happened or take away that pain.
But, I remember, that I am not alone. One of the shortest verses in the Bible, is also, I feel, one of the most stunning and powerful as well. "Jesus wept." John 11:35 His friend Lazarus had died. He ultimately raised him from the dead. But before that, Jesus wept.
I believe He weeps with all of us who grieve. We are not alone. The heavens weep too.
