No one understands

Do you ever have one of those times in your life when you are in the pit of despair? You try to make others understand how hurt and angry you are without hurting them but they just say, get over it and move on with your life? I heard that many times from my earthly friends and loved ones who thought they were helping me by saying that.

I had been married for two years when my husband and I found out I could never have children of my own. It devastated both of us but he seemed to move on. I could not because I always felt it was my fault. I had some sort of defect that made me different then other women. I did not like being around other women with children because I felt they were superior to me. When my sister in laws started having children I became so envious of them I could not go to family gatherings without feeling they were so much better and I did not belong there.

Then one day my one sister in law sent me a card that showed me she understood what was going on with me. She sent me a card with Jesus with his arms spread open on the front. I opened it and all she wrote was, He understands.

It reminded me of this song written by John Peterson

No one understands like Jesus
No one understands like Jesus;
He's a Friend beyond com-pare.

Meet Him at the throne of mercy;
He is waiting for You there.

No one under-stands like Jesus
When the days are dark and grim.
No one is so near, so dear as Jesus;
Cast Your every care on Him.

No understands like Jesus;
Every woe He sees and feels.
Tenderly He whispers comfort,
And the broken heart He heals.


No one understands like Jesus
When the foes of life assail.
You should never be discouraged;
Jesus cares and will not fail.


NO one understands like Jesus
When you falter on the way.
Though you fail Him, sadly fail Him,
He will pardon You today.

When it comes right down to it, no one really does understand your heart like he does.


  1. I was very hurt this morning but something someone said to me. In my heart I knew I didn't deserve these harsh words yet they keep going through my mind and therefore I am lying awake tonight still thinking about those horrible words. I knew I had read somewhere on a blog about God understanding and have been looking for it and Thank you God I found it under your Blog. Thank you Garnet as I find comfort in the words of this song.

  2. That's how I feel today, trying to get my husband to understand the hurt i feel... but he just ignores me and thinks it will pass if he doesn't answer me.
