Hello FrostArcana – I’m John. Your question is of importance because it involves the Incarnation, the truth that God, the Second Person of the Trinity, really did become a real human being, just like you and I, with all our powers and emotions. First, I’m speaking of humans, not animals. God, in His real human nature, did eat and drink, take care of His body by washing, and God experienced all the emotions. In all these ways God (in His human nature) did experience the same things we experience. Disappointment, discouragement, joy, pain, and the sufferings of bodily pain. Key> It was GOD Who Experienced all these human things BECAUSE God really did become a REAL human being and forever.
All creatures, in a mysterious way, exist in God Our Creator. Nothing CAN exist independent of God. We do not know howemphasized text**God experiences these kinds of thing.
You should know, as part of your belief in the Incarnation, that there are TWO natures in Jesus, Divine and human, and that there is ONLY ONE PERSON in Jesus, the Person of the Second Person of the Trinity. Jesus is Real! Talk with Jesus! And pray for me. JohnJFarren
