Comfort of God

My granddaughter had a heart procedure done yesterday.  When we returned home from Children's Hospital she was uncomfortable and in some pain. As parents and grandparents we do all we can to attempt to alleviate the pain and bring comfort.  It was heartbreaking for us as we watched and attempted to comfort her.  You can bet we all did everything in our power to help her feel better.

This picture reminds me of our loving God.  God desires to comfort us in our pain.  He desires to cradle us in His love.  I believe the difference is us.  My granddaughter wanted to be held.  She wanted us to comfort her.  She could have chosen to be in her bed and left alone but she has learned in her two years of life her parents and Gramby love her.  She does not understand why she needed surgery.  I don't think she even questioned that.  All she knew was she hurt and these people who loved her would help.

What about you?  Have you learned how loving our God is?  Do you cry out to God in your pain?  He will not turn His back on you.  Today my one year old grandson woke cranky from his nap.  He had wet through
his clothes and needed a fresh set.  I tried to sit him in the floor as I went to retrieve clean clothes.  He looked at me with tears in his eyes and guess what I scooped him up and carried him with me. 

Friend I know from experience God will do the same for you. But you must be willing to come to Him.
All that the Father gives Me will come to Me and the one who comes to Me I will by no means cast out. John 6:37
Will you come to Him today?
