What is comfort to you? A warm blanket, a cup of coffee, how about a hand to hold? Comfort comes in many forms and can mean a great many things to different people.
It is fall and here that means cooler weather, warm sweatshirts, fleece blankies, hot chocolate, oatmeal and ideally for me a crackling fire. Sometimes I get that comfort I need in a quick hug, a long overdue conversation or even a good book.
There is one place I can turn to for comfort no matter the day, time or event. My Father's arms. God is there for me in all of this. He always has a shoulder to lean on, a hand to help me up and a ear for listening. I haven't always known this comfort was available. I was not taught at a young age to take my cares to Him. I have walked many long lonely days in my time.
I'm not granted easy, carefree days for the rest of my life, but I am guaranteed that I never have to go them alone again. I don't have to wonder "Why?" because I know that He is working out all things for the greater good and the bigger picture.
Jeremiah 29:11 NIV - For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
Yeah, I can take comfort in that. I can set out in whatever I do with a knowledge that it will all work out and come together. It may not work out according to my plan, come together as I initially expect but 'Thy will be done' is all is really need to remember anyway.
