Comfort comes in many forms
Comfortable lounging pants.
In the winter… a heavy denim quilt made from clothes from each of my children.
Chicken noodle soup.
A kind word.
Those are some of the things I find comfort in. And some of those are irreplaceable and incredibly important to me.
In despair though, in the muck we call depression, even though I appreciated all of the above, I found the extra comfort I needed in
2 Thessalonians 2:16-17
16 Now may our Lord Jesus Christ himself and God our Father, who loved us and through grace gave us eternal comfort and good hope, 17 comfort your hearts and strengthen them in every good work and word.
And so many others… of course, but alas my five minutes has been up for a couple now. BTW, I hope some of my words also give comfort.
