Can you relate?

“He (God) comes alongside us when we go through hard times, and before you know it, he brings us alongside someone else who is going through hard times so that we can be there for that person just as God was there for us” (2 Corinthians 1:4, MSG). Another principle the Young Life ministry was founded on was “Win the Right to Be Heard.” The one who wins this right is often the one who can relate to what someone is going through. Remember that hard time you went through and how God brought you through it? What a blessing it is to come alongside someone who is going through a similar situation, walk with them through their distress, and point them to the God who can relate to distress!
