You know that feeling of perfection you get when you lay down and curl up under a big fluffy comforter? It is soft, warm, crisp, and clean. There is just no place in the world you would rather be!
God is my comforter.
He is perfection.
(Yes, I know....another analogy. It seems to be my thing, just go with it)
We all go through trials. Sometimes they pile on you and feel like you are being crushed. It is one thing after another and many times one thing on top of another, and another....and another. You are pushed farther then you think you can handle. (Luckily, God knows better)
This has been my week. There has been a lot...and I mean a lot. And for a few of my friends, it has been a ton. I found my self today grumpy, stressed, and being a big complainer which are generally not adjectives I would use to describe myself. (Most of the time)
So the last couple nights, I have opened my bible to SOAP (Bible Study & Journal) and had to laugh at how plainly God laid it out for me.
time he said, “My grace is all you need. My power works best in
weakness.” So now I am glad to boast about my weaknesses, so that the
power of Christ can work through me..
2 Corinthians 12:9
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 1:4
He might as well have added a big TADAAA! At the end.
I knew that through all this God is working in me. I just didn't know why. Well....
Here he was ready and willing to be my comforter. I just had to stop being a "big complainer" long enough to notice it is no where near....all about me and my troubles. It is always about Him and bringing glory to His name.
God is my soft, warm, crisp, clean comforter. Only he is the best one you can get....He is like SUPER comforter (Top of the line if I do cheese so myself) The one that lifts the weight right off you and holds it for you.
But more then that the reason I need comforting is because I need to learn how to show others God's comfort as well. He has to teach me to be what He knows someone else will need one day. He has to mold me and break me to be who He wants me to be. So that I can bring Glory to His name EVERYDAY... Not just when things are peachy.
God has a plan for us....as long as we stay wrapped in the perfect comfort He is offering.
