This message is to tel you that in the mist of pain and sorrow – God is alive in it. We have to give him the chance to ease our pains and wipe away our sorrow! Jesus Christ, the son of God in human flesh like you and I , bore pain of a dimension you can never bear and sorrow that almost took away the plan of Almighty God for man kind. For your sake, he told the Father, “ Let your will be done and not my will.” (Isaiah 53:1-8, Luke 22:42)
