The Father of all mercies.
The God of all comfort.
In all my tribulation.So that I may be able to comfort anyone in trouble. With God comfort.
As suffering abounds in me, my consolation in Christ abounds.
If I am afflicted, if I am comforted, it is because God is able to bring salvation and comfort to others that will enable them to endure, to persevere along their own earth journey.
And my hope for you is strong and sure. I know from personal experience that your suffering will never outweigh the consolation of God's comfort.
Life's burdens are immeasurable - beyond the capabilities of my strength.
Even though I have the sentence of death in myself . . . in this present case - stage III cancer. . . I learn to not trust myself - but to trust my God - the God who raises the dead. Who also resurrects the dead places of my heartscape, bringing quietude, grace, and life.
God has delivered me from the death of hope. He is delivering. He will continue to deliver.
And you, dear ones, by joining in prayer for and with me, create a geyser of human gratitude for the gift of our God's comfort and grace.
A gift that grows from heart to heart.
