God Spoke Comfort

I arrived home from school tired and discouraged. I thought of others’ sufferings. I prayed, out loud, “Lord, why is life so hard?

I walked past my computer and noticed my niece* had emailed a Bible verse: “Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God (2 Corinthians 1:3-4).”

That verse was God’s direct answer to my prayer: When life is hard God comforts me so I learn how to comfort others.

*Bethany regularly emails verses. Her quiet reminders of truth are a continual blessing to me.
