I find comfort, courage, and guidance in the Bible. The world may change, but God’s Word–like Him–never changes. Jesus told us troubled times will come. He also reminded us not to worry because He’s already overcome evil.
There is a place I run to
When comfort is what I need
It’s in the embrace of God
Who always cares for me
There is a place I run to
When joy is what I crave
It’s in the Presence of God
Who holds and keeps us saved.

God’s embrace is comforting and full of assurance…👍
Amen. Nice to meet you, Kachy. Blessings. 🙂
Nice to meet you too. Holding God in high esteem is all we can do for ourselves and watch him work in our life.
I am so grateful for God’s promise of comfort…even though I sometimes begin with complaints, whines, and cries of “Why God?” When I finally take a breath and listen, His Spirit whispers words of hushed comfort and hugs of hope. And I rejoice…again!
David’s example of pouring his heart before the Lord is our assurance God desires to hear our hearts too. <3 He fills the space sorrow left behind with joy.
And btw, Wendy white crowned sparrows have arrived in our part of Texas for the winter and joining this past Sunday, snow geese! I love to see them arrive. We have many lakes and pastures where they flock every year. The sounds of their honks always draw my gaze into the heavens as I marvel at their yearly journey, knowing come spring they will depart again, and again, and again…because of the command and majesty of their Creator God.
Diane, I also love the sound of geese honking. You’ve described a slice of heaven–enjoy. 🙂 Amen to the “command and majesty of their Creator God.”
What a beautiful word to bring us today , of His comfort and joy! Thank,you so much Wendy! We saw a lone seagull flying over our house when we were outside today. The sun was out bright, so the seagull was shining in the light. 🙂
Thank you, dear Debbie. <3 I can picture the lovely sight you described. Seagulls glisten like pearls when the sun shines on them.
Bless you…running in… 🙂
🙂 Thank you.
A lovely poem. I found myself singing it as I read it.
Thanks, Michael, for blessing me; I’d love to see it turned into a song. 🙂
Heart warming and inspiring photos, Wendy.
Thank you, dear friend. I enjoyed your blog post and your poetry reading today. Both lovely.
Wendy, I just listened to your podcast for the first time. You have such a soothing voice and impart such wisdom. Those curmudgeons sure can bring us down easily enough. I met one on the path today myself. Kept telling myself “be kind, everyone is fighting battles I know nothing about.” Thx so much for your story, wonderful poem and the reminder that God gives us strength to rise above it and pray for those who hurt our hearts. In doing so, we become all the more like Him.
Jamie, I think what you quoted is perfect: “be kind, everyone is fighting battles I know nothing about.” Jesus is enough to help us through the tough stuff. xo Thank you and blessings, dear friend.
Beautiful…your words are simply beautiful. Sometimes, I need the reminder that the Lord comforts His people.
Thank you, dear Kim. Remembering He is a loving Father helps me run to Him when I need comfort.
Wow that was amazing💛 Glory!🙌🏻✨
Trumpeter swans trumpet their Creator’s glory. Thank you.
