Our times of deep sorrow are understood and shared by our Lord. We must allow ourselves to grieve when we experience loss. Many times we show great compassion for others when they are hurting; yet we believe we must be strong when we suffer.
The sisters of Lazarus, Martha and Mary were not afraid to be honest about their deep pain and confusion following Lazarus death. They went to Jesus seeking answers.
(John 11:20-32). Both sisters used the phrase "if you had been here" (Verses 21, 32) Jesus did not rebuke them for their cutting accusations. Following their conversations scripture records His reaction. "He groaned in the spirit and was troubled (John 11:33b NKJ)." He shares your trouble; share His comfort.
