When it’s cold outside (and these days it is c-c-cold in Kansas!) I find comfort in the warmth of my fireplace. The ache in my arthritic joints eases when the fire’s heat reaches me. When my heart aches, I have a place to find comfort, too–God’s word. The Bible is filled with promises of His presence. Knowing I face no conflict alone and that He will give me the strength I need to go to battle is a wonderful source of comfort that eases my worry and fear.
