Psalm 68:5 A father of the fatherless, a defender of widows, Is God in His holy habitation.
God’s love is very tender toward those who hurt. Children who have lost their fathers and women who have lost their husbands can count on His compassion.
When we lose a loved one, do we focus on the Father’s gentleness? We are more likely to complain that he did not extend life than to praise Him for His care.
But when we feel the most pain, we also receive the largest portion of God’s comfort.
What hurts his children, hurts him too.
