"As one whom his mother comforteth, so will I comfort you." (Isa. 66:13)
Are you in need of comfort today? It need not be bereavement, just a feeling of being alone and/or hurting. Comfort is one of many things in life searched for in all the wrong places, or from all the wrong people. If I may, I'd like to remind you (and me) of the right place and, above all, the right people. I call them a Trio of Consolation.
The Holy Spirit
In the three Personalities of my God, I have the comfort of a mother, the pity of a father, and the empathy of a brother. Supernatural solace for inconsolable grief--what a thing! No wonder the songwriter wrote:
Come, ye disconsolate, where-e'er ye languish
Come to the mercy seat; fervently kneel.
Here bring your wounded hearts; here tell your anguish,
Earth has no sorrow that heav'n cannot heal.
