(From Steve Miller's *One-Minute Promises of Comfort*)

COMFORT FOR LIFE'S HURTS

"As one whom his mother comforts, so I will comfort you." ~Isaiah 66:13

Humanly speaking, a mother's comfort is the best kind there is. Nothing can heal a child's hurts better than a mother's touch, kindness, words, gentleness, and sympathy. When it comes to comfort, no one does it better than a mom.

Scripture likens God's comfort to that of a mother. When we are in pain, He invites us warmly into His presence and lavishes compassion on us. He listens tenderly to our cries and wipes away our tears. He knows best how to quiet and reassure our frightened hearts. He will not mock our weakness as some people might. Rather, He delights in bearing our griefs with us.

That's why it doesn't make sense to shake your fist at God when affliction comes. To do so is to resist the love of the One who can comfort you best. In times of anguish, then, may you rush into His arms with haste, and seek His motherly care. Let Him do what only He can do.

BELIEVE, LIVE JOYFULLY, BREATHE DEEPLY, BE HOPEFUL, LAUGH!!!

"When I stand before God at the end of my life I would hope that I would have not a single bit of talent left and could say, 'I used everything You gave me.'" ~Erma Bombeck
