Today’s word we are looking at is comfort and some things the Bible says about it.There are many things that cause us discomfort, like, broken relationships, loss of loved ones, etc. No matter what, we must say thank you for all things as we ask our Father in Heaven for comfort. Below are a few verses that speak about comfort; I trust that you will be encouraged and comforted by these words from God’s word.

even the words that deal gently with you?
19 Your righteousness reaches heaven, God,
You who have done great things;
God, who is like You?
20 You caused me to experience
many troubles and misfortunes,
but You will revive me again.
You will bring me up again,
even from the depths of the earth.
21 You will increase my honor
and comfort me once again
