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.

    Where else can I go to. The Bible says even your father and mother may forsake you but God will not. He listen’s and hears our prayers. He is our only source of joy. Eternal Father. Thank you Lord for being my rock. Thank for Your gift of grace. Thank You for being my shelter and hope in times of trouble and despair. As I look back on my life I see the hand of God in every dark phase of my life. Remember God is always supporting us never think he has left you. It is we who have left him. Thank You Jesus. Glory to You living God. Amen

    Jesus is the answer.

    …the way, the truth, and the life… John 14:6

  5. John Riggs says:

    He has comforted me numerous times and I am soooo thankful. There is no better place in the world than at the feet of Jesus! If you have an inkling that He is calling you, don’t hesitate to cry out to Him. Accept His forgiveness. Your life will be different…not perfect…but definitely different! And your journey home will have begun.

  6. Rick Wilson says:

    After Christ’s ultimate sacrifice at Mt. Calvary, subsequent resurrection and ascension into the kingdom of Heaven, the Holy Spirit was sent as a comforter to those who believed and followed the Decalogue.



  8. Samson says:

    I really want to live a life for Christ but often do feel He is not listening to me nor does he communicates with me

    1. Jim Perkins says:

      Samson, Every word you say, pray, to Jesus Christ never goes unheard. He hears you and loves you.
      Believe, understand everything he does for us is Great and better than we could know. Remember, pray, He Is listening, always.

    2. Don Robinson says:

      Samson…Please believe me when I tell you I know very well what you are going through. At one time in my life I constantly heard people say things like; I was praying and the Lord told me… Or; God told me to do this or that. I could hardly stand to hear it because it left me feeling like God didn’t care what I had to say and He wouldn’t talk to me. Finally I just started praying in a totally different way. I got down on my knees and just stayed there quite and thought thoughts of praise for Him. Finally I started getting answers. Some time we just need to be quite. Now I an on a first name basis with him. Just be quite Samson and listen. I will pray for you that God will hear your prayers and answer you in a great way. GBU
