Jesus is Our Comforter

Christ is the answer to sorrow. When Harry Lauder, the great Scottish comedian, received word that his son had been killed in France, he said, “In a time like this, there are three courses open to man: He may give way to despair and become bitter. He may endeavor to drown his sorrow in drink or in a life of wickedness. Or he may turn to God.” In your sorrow, turn to God. There are thousands of people who have turned to God, but you may be still carrying your burdens. God begs of you, “Cast all your cares on me, for I care for you” (1 Peter 5:7). You who must go through the valley of the shadow of death, you who must say goodbye to those whom you have loved, you who suffer privation and misery, you who are unjustly persecuted for righteousness’ sake-take heart, take courage. Our Christ is more than adequate for sorrow.

Prayer for the day

In sorrow, Jesus, Your comfort will take all the bitterness and longing away and give me courage to face the heartache. Your grace will console me and Your arms will support me. Thank You, dear Lord.

    Our son Christopher died at the age of 19 in an auto accident. It has been 10 years and I have found that my grief has changed as I have let Jesus take my pain day by day and memory by memory.

    Lost our son, Ian almost two years ago. Still struggling with grief and anger but God in his mercy has begun giving us spells of Peace. We are reminded frequently that He is holding us up on our leaning side.

    Que o Senhor Jesus Cristo lhe abençoe muito. Comecei a ler sobre sua vida porque conheço um pastor de jovens que sempre faz menção de sua história Sr. Graham, quero muito mais santidade porque desejo ministrar vidas e ajudá las a sair do inferno como fizeram por mim e minha minha família.
    um grande abraço
