Jesus Is Our Comfort

This is the second Sunday of Advent, and today we light the candle of COMFORT. In the world we live in, we need reminding that Jesus is our comfort.

When Harry Lauder, the great Scottish comedian, received word that his son had been killed in France, he said, “In a time like this, there are three courses open to man: He may give way to despair and become bitter. He may endeavor to drown his sorrow in drink or in a life of wickedness. Or he may turn to God.”

No matter what we face, Christ is the answer.

Are you afraid? Read Isaiah 51:2, “I, yes I, am the one who comforts you. So why are you afraid of mere humans, who wither like the grass and disappear? 

Do you have troubles? Read Psalm 119:50, Your promise revives me; it comforts me in all my troubles

Do you need hope? Read Romans 15:4, For whatever things were written before were written for our learning, that we through the patience and comfort of the Scriptures might have hope. 

Are you mourning a loss? Read Matthew 5:4, Blessed are those who mourn, For they shall be comforted. 

Are you worried about death? Read Psalm 24:4, Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; For You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me

Can you think of anyone who needs comforting? Let’s be the hands and feet of Christ and comfort them today!

This song reminds us that Jesus sees. You are not forgotten, He knows your name.

Have a blessed Sunday friends!

  1. I AM HAVING TROUBLE,WITH MY PHONE . HOPEFULLY I WON’T SEND SEVERAL MESSAGES JUST LIKE Hi Cyndi. I just wAnted u to know that I really appreciated this post the other day. But had to reread it today as it had different meaning for me this time. I’ve been crying my eyes out.
    My husband & I got a call from our son Isaiah’s school counselor today letting us know that our he has been contemplating suicide. I know this isn’t a Dear Abby column and I’m not asking anything of anyone other than prayer. Please, lots of prayers. That was a scary thing to hear. I had no idea what to say when I went in to talk to him. I hugged him like I was never going to let go. He was crying and it breaks my heart. Isaiah is a senior in high school. He wrestles, lifts weights & sings in the choir. He volunteers at boys & girls club and even grows his pretty blond curls out just to donate them to locks of love. Then he grows them out again and donates again. He has a really nice girlfriemd. He seems so happy. I know we aren’t a perfect family what could I be doing wrong? If I were to ever lose one of my children I just don’t know how I would be able to go on.
    Thank you and God bless.

    1. Sharon,

      I am so sorry for what you are going through. I totally understand as my husband and I found our son in his truck with a loaded shotgun beside him one night about 10 years ago. We all cried, prayed and hugged. It is so difficult when your child is hurting. I pray that God will place his loving arms around you, that you will feel His comfort and His peace. I’m thankful for the counselor who told you so you can walk through this with your son. I pray for Isaiah – that God will work in his life, that he will know how special he is, that he will erase his pain and give him true joy in this life! Love and hugs, Susan

  3. Thanks for the song……I really needed to hear those words. Really going through a struggle with daily migraines and no answers.

  4. Thank you for the great reminder. My husband is soon to under go treatment plans for cancer. Our faith in God is strong. However our human side and the what if sometimes get in my head. Than I remember God is in control and knows the desire of my heart.

  5. Cyndi, I totally loved today’s blog. Happy Advent!
    Question: Hhave you died the face therapy thing that you shared on your “currently loving” section? How are you liking it? If you don’t mind doing a blog just about alternative stuff like those. I have started using CR’s products because of you two months ago, and I am loving them, but I am thinking ahead since i’ll Be 40 in four years! 😉

  6. Excellent lesson. Sometimes I copy or take pictures of the screen to keep certain segments or scriptures. These posts are greatly appreciated.

  7. Thank you for posting that beautiful song. The Lord knew I really needed it today. My husband passed away in November after a ten year battle with Lewy Body and Parkinson’s. He was 63 years old. I was cleaning out some of his things and my tears were flowing. It is so wonderful to know our Lord sees our tears and is with us.

    It is hard loosing our loved ones but we know we will see them again with no sadness or disease but a perfect body.

  8. Thank you for this beautiful post, I love the song you shared. God bless you and your sweet family. I know you don’t know me, I rarely comment anywhere and I’ve only commented once here in the past, but I’ve followed your fashion blog for about 3 years now, I love your blog and especially your beauty for the heart posts!

    I am so sorry to hear about you and your husband’s recent losses, I have been lifting y’all up in prayer. God Bless you! Keep shining for Jesus, you sweet lady! You truly are an inspiration!

  9. Hi Cyndi- beautiful post, as always. If I may ask for prayer for my MIL. She is have surgery on Tuesday to remove a cancerous skull tumor. More importantly, she doesn’t know Jesus as her Savior. Please pray for her heart to be open to receive Christ and for opportunities for someone to lead her to Christ… even if it’s not me or my husband; maybe a nurse etc. thank you sweet friend 😘 have a blessed day with your family

    1. Hi Lisa…..I will pray for your MIL and her surgery for full recovery and you shine a light that Jesus is our healer and she comes to know him, Amen. Have a Blessed Day.
