3 Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, 4who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God. - 2 Corinthians 1:3,4
personal experiences is indeed risky, scary, and yet powerful. Anything
worthwhile will be risky, scary, and powerful. As I consider the main thing
that is sustaining me through this season in the desert, I am humbled to
realize it is the very thing I feel God calling me to share with the oppressed
and afflicted: His Word. No
matter how depressed or tired I get, He has never failed to provide me with
words of encouragement. When I sit down at the keyboard, His words flow through
me like a spring from my heart… He is calling me to use His words to water
gardens besides my own. Those in darkness that need His Light, and those in a
sun-scorched land which need living water from the fountain of life.
Don't let your trials be in vain- use them to comfort others. Listen to people with the compassion Christ shares with you.
