God is Acquainted with Sorrow

He was despised and rejected by mankind, a man of suffering, and familiar with pain. Like one from whom people hide their faces he was despised, and we held him in low esteem. (Isaiah 53:3)

Jesus walked the path of suffering and shame in order to understand the places where we hurt. For we do not have a high priest who is unable to empathise with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are; yet he did not sin. (Hebrews 4:5)

God wants us to know that he understands how we feel and he cares about our emotional wellbeing. He is a God of comfort and compassion and wants to heal every broken emotion. God wants to heal our hurt and pain. Sometimes we try to mask our pain with our own solutions that at times create more problems. By the stripes of Jesus we can claim healing for every emotional wound.

Jesus is described in (Isaiah 53:3) as being despised and rejected by men, A Man of sorrows and acquainted with grief. There is nothing that you will go through that Jesus cannot relate to. His time on earth was depicted by suffering and pain and he wants to comfort you.

There is hope friends and God will walk with us and carry us through every place where we hurt. He died for our healing and he wants to make us whole again. Stay in his presence and know that Jesus is able to heal you where it hurts.

I am a trained Social Worker who currently provides professional leadership on a programme to support Social Work students and Newly Qualified Social Workers entering the Social Work Profession.

Born and raised in Jamaica in a Christian family where my father is an ordained Pastor and Deacon who has served for over 50 years in the ministry. My father is also a trained musician and our family can be described as a musical family. I grew up in a small farming community in St. Peter’s, St. Andrew and my parents also have a small farm.

I credit my gift of writing to my father who I watched and listened to over the years as he wrote sermons, poems and other recitals in his capacity in ministry. English has always been an easy subject for me and over the years I have developed an increased interest in writing.

I am a Trainer, I sing and have a passion for worship, the spoken word and the free flow of the prophetic anointing. I am married to my best friend Andrew Christopher Young who is an advanced Musician and whose music you can find on YouTube and Facebook. I am a trained Coach and Mentor and I love experimenting with food so I love cooking. I enjoy trying cultural dishes from across the world and I view food as an entry into cultures and languages.
