My eyes fail, looking for your promise; I say, “When will you comfort me?”
Are you seeking the Lord’s promise, His comfort? I am. Comfort presents a soothing image like this perhaps:
The sun is streaming through my bedroom window, the sounds of birds are singing and children at play outside while rushing off to school . . . the afghans, quilts, pillows and things I’ve created provide comfort. I am, at this moment designing something of that sort to provide comfort to someone I love. I know my gift will be appreciated.
Still, it will not be quite enough. We cannot, in our humanness, provide “enough.” As I read what the Psalmist writes “when will you comfort me” I am convicted. For, like him I know the Lord’s promises, know they are real, know they are mine, and know they bring me morethan enough . . . as only He can.
“Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me. John 14:1-3 My heart is troubled. But I am working on that because He loves me. Just as the throw I design and make for the one I love will provide warmth and comfort, so then will the Lord provide in much greater ways than my love can do. So, I will stitch, I will pray, I will listen, and I will wait. I already know how my story ends, for He already won for me the victory!

No, human comfort, while wonderful, isn’t enough. Like you, I have great peace knowing Jesus has the victory!
Amen! Thank you!
