Why Has Thou Forsaken Me

All night and even this morning these words continue to sound and resound in my mind and heart and soul. My most beloved brother, Jesus Christ, was giving His life for the sake of all humanity on this earth, to enable humanity to seek salvation through the blessings of Almighty God. It was for the sake of freedom, justice, forgiveness, family, spirituality, and love. He knew that He had been chosen from the very beginning as He moved through the masses of a humanity that spoke of this great man by the name of Jesus Christ, who had been sent to earth by God.

I am amazed of how much He must have suffered nailed alive to the cross by His hands and feet, not having anyone come forward except His loving mother, Mary.  On her knees, she tried to touch His feet so that He would know that she had never deserted Him and never would.

How He must have felt teaching and sharing His kindness and love, knowing that not one had been present as He suffered on the cross. It is no wonder that He finally looked up to heaven and spoke to God asking, "Why has Thou  forsaken me?"

Soon after, the heavens opened. My beloved brother, Jesus Christ, came into the midst and power of God's kingdom of heaven. To this very day and time all the teachings and everything that Jesus Christ shared made it possible for us to be who we are today.

No, God never truly forsook His Son, Jesus Christ, who in making the statement indicated that He was human -- more human than we will ever be.
