Who knows the heartache of having a home split apart? What about someone to understand the loss of a child . . . or the misery of a teenager on drugs . . . or a failure in school . . . or the loss of a business? God knows you are hurting and wants to be your Comforter.
Rare is the person who has not known heartache from loss, deprivation, discouragement, or failure. Chuck Swindoll wants us to know that God knows we are hurting and that He wants to be our Comforter.
