Comfort, strength and grace


Many think that when God comforts us, our troubles should go away. But if that were always so, people would turn to God only out of a desire to be relieved of pain and not out of love for him.
We must understand that being comforted can also mean receiving strength, encouragement, and hope to deal with our troubles.
The more we suffer, the more comfort God gives us.
If you are feeling overwhelmed, allow God to comfort you. Remember that every trial you endure will help you comfort other people who are suffering similar troubles.

May God the Father and our Lord Jesus Christ give you grace and peace. Jesus gave his life for our sins, just as God our Father planned, in order to rescue us from this evil world in which we live. All glory to God forever and ever! Amen. (‭Galatians‬ ‭1‬:‭3-5‬ NLT)

I pray that The Lord will give us strength to go through life’s troubles.

Have a lovely evening and keep on smiling!! 🙂
