Crying, Feeling Sad and lonely

Are you feeling sad, lonely, hurt, rejected? Are you crying your heart out? I know Someone who is crying too. He saw exactly what happened to make you feel bad. You cannot see Him but God can see you. He loves you more than anyone else in this world.
Jesus died for you. He knows you by name. He knows where you live, and He knows the name of everyone around you.
Jesus cries with you.

I have loved you with an everlasting love: therefore with loving-kindness have I drawn you.. Jeremiah 31:3

 Jesus says He endured many sorrows.  He says, "I know your tears; I also have wept. The grief that lies too deep to be breathed into any human ear, I know. Don't think you are desolate and forsaken." Paraphrased from  Desire of Ages p. 469 by Ellen White.

The distress of every one touches His heart. The cry for help reaches His ear.  Desire of Ages 467

Turn to your Bible for the answers. There is an answer there for everything. One day while I was crying over a deep sadness caused by something I can tell no person, I opened my book Desire of Ages asking Jesus to help me. The book opened to the above statements.
You are special and precious to Him. He sings about you. You can rest secure in His love. He even composes music about you. That is real tender feeling and love for you! He promises to gather those who are crying. He will gather those who have been made fun of. He will gather those that everyone picks on and hates. He knows where the unwanted people are. It hurts Him to see you treated so awful. He will save those who are handicapped and crippled. He will gather those who have been driven out of their home, school, or church. He will take away their shame and bring them honor. Is that a big set of promises? It is all written in Zephaniah 3:17. Imagine yourself in the picture with our precious God singing to you the song He has made about His love for you.

Zephaniah 3:17 The LORD thy God in the midst of thee [is] mighty; he will save, he will rejoice over thee with joy; he will rest in his love, he will joy over thee with singing. 
3:18 I will gather [them that are] sorrowful for the solemn assembly, [who] are of thee, [to whom] the reproach of it [was] a burden. 
3:19 Behold, at that time I will undo all that afflict thee: and I will save her that halteth, and gather her that was driven out; and I will get them praise and fame in every land where they have been put to shame. 

He says to take delight in His love and He will give you the desires of your heart. (Psalms 37:4)

Psalms 37:3 Trust in the LORD, and do good; [so] shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed. 
37:4 Delight thyself also in the LORD; and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart. 
37:5 Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also in him; and he shall bring [it] to pass. 
37:6 And he shall bring forth thy righteousness as the light, and thy judgment as the noonday. 
37:7 Rest in the LORD, and wait patiently for him: fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass. 
37:8 Cease from anger, and forsake wrath: fret not thyself in any wise to do evil. 
37:9 For evildoers shall be cut off: but those that wait upon the LORD, they shall inherit the earth. 
37:10 For yet a little while, and the wicked [shall] not [be]: yea, thou shalt diligently consider his place, and it [shall] not [be]. 

Jesus says to be strong of good courage; be not afraid, neither be dismayed for the Lord is with you wherever you go. Joshua 1:9
Even under false accusation those who are in the right can afford to be calm and considerate. God is acquainted with all that is misunderstood and misinterpreted by men, and we can safely leave our case in His hands. He will as surely vindicate the cause of those who put their trust in Him as He searched out the guilt of Achan. Those who are actuated by the spirit of Christ will possess that charity which suffers long and is kind. {PP 520.2}
The story of the good Samaritan who helped the beaten up man describes how tender Jesus is to us when He sees you have been abused, tormented, bruised, robbed and ruined by Satan and his helpers. Desire of Ages 487
