like a grieving mother

      When you start to see how wounded you really are, you start to see how God really feels about you.

“God, in [His] compassion, enters like a grieving mother into conversation with those who know themselves as wounded. . . .” Belden Lane

“In all their trouble and distress, He was troubled and distressed. . . . [I]n His compassion, He . . . carried them. . . .” Isaiah 63:9
