If A Picture Could Describe How I’m Feeling

Christ the bridegroom

Following my post last night I woke up this morning to this image on my social media. I thought to myself, “If a picture could describe how I feel right now.” At the same time I heard Jesus say, “It’s how I feel while I observe you in your suffering.” I could feel His pain. Jesus feels what we feel. When we are happy He is also. The same is true when we are suffering.

For those who know me I’m obsessed with any image related to the crown of thorns. An icon of Christ the Bridegroom takes center place on my icon wall. In this world, a crown of suffering is worth more than all the golden Crowns that sat on the heads of the noblest of Kings. To the world, a crown of thorns is something best avoided, but to the saints embraced as if their salvation depended upon it. Let’s pray we learn to embrace and see the crown of crowns 👑 for what it really is.
