I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you. – King James Version (KJV)
When family members or friends are ill, our heart goes out to them. We can pray for them and also ask our church family to pray for them. Sometimes the Lord restores their health. Other times, He makes us see His perfect will. We may not understand His timing, but it is always fair.
We can also pray for the Lord to show us what actions we can take to comfort those around us. Maybe it is sending a card, placing a phone call, or bringing over some food. We never know how much we can shape the lives of other people, so we can be thoughtful when we consider what we can do to help.
It is important to renew our walk with the Lord every day so that we don’t forget about his blessings. Jesus comforts us and never forgets about us. He is always there when we need Him. Amen.
