Blessings and love Beautiful Ones,
Comfort is defined as “the state of physical ease, freedom from pain or constraint. The easing of a person’s grief or distress; to console.” Let’s pause and think on that for a moment.
Now let’s read that again.
The easing of a person’s grief or distress.
Thirty-six characters. Eight words. One powerful statement.
In the wake of turmoil, unrest, and escalating events that often leave us gasping for a breath – searching for a way out – hoping for a little reprieve, these eight simple words offer us a lifeline.
The LORD himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.Deuteronomy 31:8
Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God.2 Corinthian 1:3-4
Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.Psalms 23:4
God is with us. God will comfort us.
Two sentences. Two phrases designed to breathe peace into our hearts and bring about a collective exhale of relief. We’re not alone. Comfort is our birthright. And we can allow the Lover of our souls to wrap us in it, at will.
His promises are yes and amen. Let the Comforter strengthen and relieve you of your distress and your grief. You’ll be so glad you did.
From My Heart To Yours💚
