Right at the end of my prayer-time a few days ago the first words of today’s blog struck me insistently. As I noted them down the rest simply followed, for which I was deeply thankful.
“If you possibly can, have pity on us and help us.” “‘If I possibly can!'” replied Jesus; “why, everything is possible to him who believes.” Immediately the father cried out, “I do believe: strengthen my weak faith” (Mark 9:22-4; WNT).
Where my faith falls short:
Give me your comfort
So I can comfort
Helping them, Jesus,
Just like you.
All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. God is our merciful Father and the source of all comfort. He comforts us in all our troubles so that we can comfort others. When they are troubled, we will be able to give them the same comfort God has given us. For the more we suffer for Christ, the more God will shower us with his comfort through Christ (2 Corinthians 1:3-5; NLT).
