We are made in the image of a God who feels both joy AND suffering.

“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth (and us! and us with emotions)”
Genesis 1:1 NIV (with commentary)

“Something’s wrong with me its like I’m having a breakdown…”
The emotion Sadness

Crying helps me slow down and obsess over the weight of life’s problems”

“all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God…”
RM 3:23

“It starts with a love of life. If you love life you can feel the happiness of life, but you can feel also the pains of life and the disappointments. If you take the love of life back to yourself, you feel neither pain nor happiness. And in our fun society people don’t feel pain and joy. They want to have their fun.”
Juergen Moltmann

God is the great companion – the fellow-sufferer who understands."
Alfred North Whitehead, Process and Reality

“Look! Look! God has moved into the neighborhood, making his home with men and women! They’re his people, he’s their God. He’ll wipe every tear from their eyes. Death is gone for good—tears gone, crying gone, pain gone…”
Revelation 21:4, MSG
