Capsule for the Day

It is easy when we are going through stuff to give in to the temptation that nobody cares; that everybody is indifferent to our plight. We could even begin to believe we are invisible... we cry and no one really hears nor take notice of us. We are visually a loner. We don't matter and no one loves us.

We may be totally right in what we think and imagine about ourselves. It could as well be true that no one really cares about us. It could even be true that many take pleasure in seeing us depressed and not coping with life. But we can't deny the fact that Jesus cares for us and He loves us.

The truth is He has gone through what we are going through and even worse. Look at the cross, His story, our story hangs there. He who has gone through pain and suffering knows what we are going through. He is with us, the Good Shepherd leading us gradually to greener pastures.
