Daily Readings — Comfort Food?

Day 2180: In Montana enjoying friends and God’s creation!

Scripture: Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our affliction . . .II Corinthians 1:3

Thoughts/questions: We often speak about finding peace, getting centered, or having comfort. We have ‘comfort food,’ our ‘happy place,’ and we ‘self medicate’ in an attempt to bring peace and comfort to our often overwhelming lives.

All of these bring a level of comfort, but the true source of all comfort must be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! Daily use of comfort food will definitely have its impact on our bodies. Our happy place is often found only in our minds as we physically can’t go there each time. And self medication – not ever a good idea for the long run!

No, our comfort must come from God! Only He can be there 24/7, we don’t gain weight, He brings mental and spiritual comfort, and getting addicted to God is a great idea in the long run!

Seek comfort from God Almighty! He will bring you comfort in ALL of your afflictions!

Suggested Prayer: Lord Jesus, thank You so much for Your continual gifts of mercy and comfort . . .
