Put Me to the test. I am here with outstretched arms to bring you comfort. No matter how difficult the circumstances, I can give you perfect peace, freedom from fear, and strength to pull you through.
Words of comfort from Jesus
Suffering often brings out the best in those who choose not to become embittered or hardened, and engenders love, tenderness, goodness, and concern for others. The Bible says, “We comfort others with the comfort that we ourselves are comforted with [by] God” (2 Corinthians 1:4). Often those who turn to God for comfort and strength in their suffering later want to point others to the One who can also ease their sufferings and help them solve their problems —God and His love.
Song (MP3) : “Does Jesus Care?” by Frank E. Graeff
Don’t you wish you had the assurance that, even if you ended up in a risky situation, you’d know no harm would come to you? Does that kind of peace of mind sound unreal? Or unlikely on this planet? Well, I have news for you: such protection and such peace do exist, even in this plagued and troubled world.
Although peace has been the goal of mankind for thousands of years—and the desire for peace is never so great as it is at Christmas—it seems that our ability to find or establish peace continues to elude us.
Everyday we make so many choices, one after the other after the other. All those choices put together equal our lives. The quality of our lives doesn’t just appear like magic (abracadabra … quality of life … voila!). The magic is in making good choices. But not only that, it’s in realizing that we have the power to shape what our lives become.
