Can you ever recall as a child being comforted during a time of emotional distress, when someone actually connected with you, and they listened for you, and they understood your pain, and they gave you reassurance afterwards, so you felt better? Sadly, many of us were not comforted, but developed ungodly reactions. Discover what comfort is NOT, and what really does help!
Everyone experiences, at some point in our life, times of pressure, difficult, distress. How can we find solutions that work for us in these times? How can we position ourselves to experience great comfort in times of distress. When we're in pain, out thinking is affected, and we tend to lose perspective. We then easily isolate, and turn to false comforts. The enemy of our soul likes to torment us, but God is a God of Comfort. Learn how to experience the comfort of God, the reality of His presence, and the comfort of Scriptures.
