It’s fun (and encouraging) to be reminded that other moms are facing the same developmental issues that I am.
But I have been pondering for the last few weeks that Jesus is a better point of comparison than someone facing the same challenges I am.
For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin. (Hebrews 4:15)
Jesus is better because not only does he know exactly how I’m feeling, what I’m worried about, but he also knows how to navigate the way out of my trials and temptations. That’s knowledge my human companions don’t always have, even if they’re transparent about their struggles.
Moreover, he WANTS me to find help from him!
Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.
As an addendum, notice one purpose/ outcome of our suffering:
Though he were a Son, yet learned he obedience by the things which he suffered.
I’ve been pondering this, too. Jesus was perfect, and yet he learned obedience (by the outcome of that obedience). Interesting.
