Here’s the scenario: Your child is experiencing major discomfort in some way. They could be physically ill, in pain, in the hospital or just not feeling well.
They could be going through a life experience: break up of a relationship, someone is treating them unfairly, the trials and tribulations that come with purchasing their first house.
As a parent it kills me to see my kids in a struggle. The worst is when my kids are sick! I would “trade places with them in a heartbeat”. No doubt. No explanation. No questions asked. I would jump in and go thru it for them. From birth thru adulthood I would do that. The reason? Simply, I love them! I love them like the blessings they are! I love them because of an infinite amount of reasons. I love them! Period!
This prompted a question to rise in my consciousness….
I love Jesus! Would I have jumped in without question? Without pause? Without concern? Would I have traded places because of my love for him when he was hurting? Would I have jumped in and carried that cross? Would I have taken all that he went through because of my love for him? Would I have “traded places with him in a heartbeat?”
This thought for me was so deep….
I’m asking that if you’ve read this far in the post and you wish to share your thoughts please do.
