“Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world” (John 16:33; NLT).

“So he returned home to his father. And while he was still a long way off, his father saw him coming. Filled with love and compassion, he ran to his son, embraced him, and kissed him” (Luke 15:20; NLT).

To embrace us,
Whilst weeping over our pain,
And spiritual darkness.
