The Word gives Comfort!

I can't explain it.... but it just does!  When you go to the Word for answers, for guidance, out of need.... you come away comforted, renewed, calmed!

It like, God Himself has just spoken into your heart.  Oh wait!  He has!  His Word, His truth!  It changes you without even trying.


I know I have often gone to the Word seeking answers and ... sometimes not getting them, but I come away being able to exhale, being able to see clearer, being able to cope better.

Yes, God's Word comforts and uplifts.  Praise God!  Praise God!

Ps 119 v 50:  This is my comfort in my affliction, for Your Word has given me life.

Isaiah 40 v 8:  The grass withers, the flower fades, but the Word of our God stands forever.

Trusting His Word does the same for you as you seek it out!

God bless
Tracy

  3. I've never done this before, but when we went on vacation last Sunday I HAD to take my Bible. I've never felt such a strong pull. So, I did. I ended up reading it on the balcony (next to a huge 40 ft indoor waterfall) after the girls went to sleep. After I went to take a bath, I found my husband reading it. It's like a part of me now... like one of my kids.. I don't like to be without it.

    1. Hi Dawn - it is exactly as you say, one can tell when one needs to bury oneself in the word, distracted, unfocused. God's word dispels both.
