Let's Talk About You

Today's Scripture

"All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. God is our merciful Father and the source of all comfort. He comforts us in all our troubles so that we can comfort others. When they are troubled, we will be able to give them the same comfort God has given us." - 2 Corinthians 1:3-4 NLT

Thoughts for Today

Is someone you care about suffering from a life-controlling problem a dependence or compulsive behavior or addiction? It might be an eating disorder, drugs, alcohol, gambling, compulsive spending, pornography, overworking or one of many other things that can take hold of a person's life. Your loved one's problem is most likely affecting your life as well.

Rather than focusing on the person with the problem, let's talk about you as a concerned person. You might be finding that every day is a struggle with sensitive and emotional issues. It is important for you to know that you aren't alone.

Consider this..

The Bible tells us that God comforts us in all our troubles. This kind of comfort combines relief and consolation. God is a Comforter, standing at your side, ready to minister to your needs.

How can you receive this comfort? Talk to God. Tell him that you trust him and want to do things his way. Sometimes he will comfort you through other people. Sometimes he will comfort you through his words in the Bible. Other times he will simply fill you with peace in the midst of turmoil.

Remember, God loves you. He cares. He understands. And he is able to comfort you, no matter what the circumstances.

Prayer : "Our Loving Heavenly Father, the struggle gets to be too much. I can't do it alone. Help me remember that I don't have to. Help me remember that you are with me, offering me your love, your strength and your comfort. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, Amen."

Have a Blessed Sunday and God Bless you.
