Thought for the Day: The first half of this verse is pretty well known, but so often we don’t move into vs. 14. It is as if we enjoy the comfort, but don’t notice the product of a God who comforts us. It is more than just a warm fuzzy kind of comfort, but one with reverberations that effects our senses, raises our spirits and even impacts our physical selves. When I think about the comfort of a parent, the kind of comfort a healthy parent provides, it goes well beyond the moment. It changes who we are, how we see the world and how we live in the world. Comfort it not a momentary reprieve, but an unfettering of whatever it is that seeks to constrain us with fear. May we all know the comfort of the Lord.
Prayer: Comfort, O comfort your people, Lord. Comfort us with your unmerited love and your unwavering kindness. Comfort us, and in doing so, refashion us so we might perceive, speak and live as you would have us live. Amen.
