Thoughts for Thursday


By Guest Blogger Emily Farmer

What is your comfort level today? Is it low, high or somewhere in between. Is love a comfort you are accustomed too? Our God is such a God of comfort, even in difficult times. The days are long and emotions run high especially if you have difficult people you have to deal with. To know our God is there for us should make us feel much better. But often it's something we forget.

Take this as a reminder that God is there for you to give you comfort. He loves to make us feel loved. He is the only one who can give you true comfort. Material possessions and people can not give us the comfort God does. So this got me to thinking if he gives us comfort, shouldn't we give comfort to others? As a mother it's very easy to give comfort when my children are sick. But what about the rest of the time, does your family feel comfort from you? What about that hurting friend who just needs to feel comforted? Are we the ones God is sending to give it? There are many verses in the bible that talk of comfort. Like Matt. 6: 21" Where ever you treasure is there your heart will be also." Treasures are a comfort to some. Just like food is a comfort to others. Matt. 4:4 "Man doesn't live on food alone but on every word that comes from the mouth of God." Now that's comfort worth seeking if you ask me. I personally want God's comfort that he has to offer. How about you?

I ran across a verse last night and wanted to share it with each of you who take the time to read my writings. I hope this verse will speak to you as it has to me. It comes from Isaiah 66:13 "As a mother comforts her child, so will I comfort you."

Press On Challenge:
Take time this week and allow God to comfort you.

Press On Verses:
"Come near to God and he will come near to you." James 4:8

"Speak encouraging words to one another. "1 Thessalonians 5:11(The Message)

Have a blessed day my dear blogger reading friends.
