Jesus’ presence in our times of broken heartedness and crushed spirits is like a healing balm that soothes the pain. A balm is a sweet-smelling oil used to make creams that heal wounds and reduce pain. Jesus is that balm to us in these moments. We know that trials produce in us character and perseverance but that knowledge doesn’t change the fact that sometimes it hurts so much. That is why we need the healing balm of His presence.
