Rock Us in Your Arms of Love

“Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort; Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.” 2 Corinthians 1:3-4 King James Version

Heavenly Father, we come to You this morning with weary and battle scarred hearts. We ask You to please pick us up and hold us close to Your compassionate heart. Please rock us in Your arms of love. Some of us have loved ones who have died. We know that they are with You and that You are taking care of them but we still miss them. Thank You for comforting us and encouraging us when we feel like we can’t take another step or give another smile. Amen.

I don’t know what is going on in your life but God knows. He sees the tears that you shed when you think nobody else can see them. He feels the heartache that you feel because your loved one has died. He understands how it hurts to lose a loved one. His own Son died on a cross of horror and excruciating pain as He gave His life’s blood for you and for me. Climb up on the lap of God and let Him hold you close to His heart of compassion and rock you.

After God has rocked us and comforted us, we are to comfort others. There are so many people who are hurting. As Joyce Landorf Heatherley, a Christian speaker and author said on one of her teaching tapes about the people we sit next to in church “They look fine and they look darling, but inside they are hurting.” We won’t have to look very far to find someone who needs comfort and encouragement. Are you comforting your family? They need comfort and love just like you do.
