God Our Comforter

By   •   February 27   •   Topics: ,


There is also comfort in mourning, because in the midst of mourning God gives a song. His presence in our lives changes our mourning into song, and that song is a song of comfort. This kind of comfort is the kind which enabled a devout Englishman to look at a deep dark hole in the ground where his home stood before the bombing and say, “I always did want a basement. Now I can jolly well build another house, like I always wanted.” This kind of comfort is the kind which enabled a young minister’s wife in a church near us to teach her Sunday school class of girls on the very day of her husband’s funeral. Her mourning was not the kind which had no hope-it was a mourning of faith in the goodness and wisdom of God; it believed that our heavenly Father makes no mistakes.

Prayer for the day

Oh heavenly Father, who knows what agony and grief are because of the sacrifice of Your beloved Son, Jesus Christ-I thank You for the comfort which embraces all those who love You.

    Billy Graham has been a vital part of my upbringing for as far back as I can remember. He is the same age as my father so I kind of saw his life and my Dad’s running in very similar veins for many years. Both of them have the deepest faith in our Lord that I have ever witnessed in my lifetime. Last week my dad, Leo, was placed in hospice at home. I join Franklin Graham in asking for your prayers for Billy and also now for my Dad as well. God Bless You all!

    Praise GOD for His love and caring because without Him we would have no comfort.
