It’s been said that there are two sides to every story. Sometimes, though, stories are more multifaceted than that. Sometimes they are a complex set of tales that meet up somewhere in the middle.
The painful part is when your tale is seemingly unknown. When your story is suppressed and you fear no one knows what is in your heart. Even though you know that it doesn’t matter what people think, somehow you still want your side to be heard. That’s the hardest part of a multifaceted tale.
The thing is, Christ knows what’s in our heart. That’s what matters–that’s all that matters. He knows our innermost thoughts and emotions. He knows our intentions. He knows all that there is to know. He hurts when we hurt. He smiles when we smile. He cries when we cry. He knows all the details–down to the hairs on our head.
Such cute hairs on his head.
Indeed, the very hairs of your head are numbered. Don’t be afraid; you are worth more than many sparrows. –Luke 12:7
