My experience has been this: God knows the best help for the despairing comes from those who understand. Jesus' presence on earth showed us that God understands human existence because God himself experienced life on earth. In the same way, our experiences give us a window into the lives of others so that we have an opportunity to walk with them through hard times. Practially speaking, this means God will match "deep" with "deep."
