When I think of the word comfort, two things come to mind: comfort food and God.
Ah, comfort food, how I love it! Macaroni and cheese, mashed potatoes and gravy, meatloaf, chicken and dumplings, pot roast, fried chicken ... I think most comfort foods are creamy, fragrant and substantial. Food that sticks to your ribs and keeps you going.
Fuel for your body.
Then I think of how the Bible says God comforts us in all our afflictions. (See 2 Cor. 1:3-4) I wonder if He comforts our spirit like food comforts our bellies - filling us with good things and sticking with us for the long haul.
Fuel for your spirit to keep on keeping on, no matter what the circumstances around us may be speaking to us..
On Fridays, I join the community at 5 Minute Friday who write for 5
minutes on the word selected by Lisa-Jo Baker. Here are the rules:
1. Write for 5 minutes flat – no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking.
2. Link back here and invite others to join in.
3. And then absolutely, no ifs, ands or buts about it, you
need to visit the person who linked up before you & encourage them
in their comments. Seriously. That is, like, the rule. And the fun. And
the heart of this community..
Sounds like fun, yes? If you want to join us, go to Lisa-Jo Baker.com.
