On the Way

Blessed are those whose strength is in you,
whose hearts are set on pilgrimage.

suffering with jesus - Psalm 69

Jesus understands and has gone through everything we have and more.
And he bore all our sins on his body on the Cross - 1 Peter 3.

here's part of Psalm 69 from the lectionary today which spoke loudly to my own, struggling, weary heart today.

19 You know my reproach,
and my shame and my dishonor;
my foes are all known to you.
20 Reproaches have broken my heart,
so that I am in despair.
I looked for pity, but there was none,
and for comforters, but I found none.
21 They gave me poison for food,
and for my thirst they gave me sour wine to drink.
