Where can I find it
When they are troubled, we will be able to give them the same comfort God has given us.”
Comfort is one of those attributes we will always need living in a fallen world. Needing comfort is the one thing we can be sure will appear on the doorstep of our lives.
Giving comfort however, is a learned behavior taught by the struggles and pains of life.
These pains can feel at times as if God himself intricately tailor made them for a specific time and season in our lives.
At other times it feels as if they just showed up un-announced and uninvited to the story of our lives. Either way it was Comfort and divine comfort that enabled us to see beyond the darkness.
Empathy and Comfort are the companions that teach us to care gently yet vigorously for one another when we experience the frailties of life.
Is there away around these lofty encounters with grief? Is sorrow a fella we are all destined to meet? Tragedy, is it truly common place as the song writer of old would sing? The answer to these questions I believe can be found in a psalm, “For his anger lasts only a moment, but his favor lasts a lifetime! weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning”Psalm 30:5
Joy, She is coming! I can’t tell you what time in the morning she will arrive and I can’t predict how dark the night will be but I can assure you Joy by divine proclamation will arrive.
SisterFriend, and when she arrives she comes with greetings from our savior who was as Isaiah the prophet said,
He is despised and rejected of men; a man of sorrows, and acquainted with grief: and we hid as it were our faces from him; he was despised, and we esteemed him not.
So finally my friend we comfort each other with the same comfort we received......We give and we receive because We are seen ✨
