The Savior is there to comfort us as we reach out to him in Faith, for he understands our trials. "He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: ...Surely he hath borne our griefs, and carried our sorrows..." (Isaiah 53:3-4 http://bit.ly/1cObHfQ )
The Savior went through the agony of Gethsemane, and the horrors of the Cross so that he would better be able to comfort and succor us in our trials, afflictions, pains, and suffering in this life. As one who knows where we have been, he can lift us higher.
He knows each of us intimately, and with a love that we cannot comprehend, but it changes us when we feel of it as we pour out our hearts in prayer, and as we serve others.
Sometimes we have the most heart-rending trials in this life, and sometimes we feel alone, or like heaven is far away. Know that you are not alone, because there is one who has felt what you are feeling, and that is Christ.
May our hearts be drawn out in gratitude for the Loving, Kind Savior who descended below all things so he could lift all things. He is our Savior, Redeemer, and our all.
