Comfort in the Midst of Trial By Brenda Drake

     I have found some of my most rewarding times are when it a few moments before prayer I was anxious and downcast in spirit.  God is our very present help in times of trouble.  He hears and answers prayer.  He desires to bring joy and peace and comfort to our souls.

Comfort in the Midst of Trials

Right in midst the trials, in the heat of them,
God’s children can be comforted deep within.
Even in discomfort, you have assurance God is there;
To fully know that He cares.
In days-long where feelings are low;
The Son still shines so that you grow.
When clouds are black and all around in despair,
Trust and know God is just and fair.
When times travels fast and life seems to pass you by;
Choose to look forward to your future on high.
Watch for the narrow way again
He gives strength and the ability to walk the path with Him.
Jesus is truth, life and the way, peace and joys unfold,
He is shining example that leads to streets of gold.
As one, you are His friend to stay
On life’s journey Holy Spirit is your comfort along the way

Psalms 23:1-6
The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.

Matthew 28:20
Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen

Holy Comforter By Brenda Drake

       There are times when only the Holy Spirit is able to successfully show us the comfort we need at just the right time. Only God can know exactly how we are feeling and only He can touch us in our most needy situations.  He indeed is the Comforter of our soul.

Holy Comforter

There is One near that you cannot see
He is the One that dries the tears for thee.
He walks where angels cannot tread.
He hears every word ever said.
He is always kind and gentle to the aching heart.
He is the One that kindles loves fires to start.
He builds up and makes strong the damaged and weak.
He gives comfort to the soul that seeks.
This One comes at the whispered prayer;
And He truly for you cares.
His healing touch raises the dead.
He nourishes the starving, and strengthens the underfed.
The Comforter is sent as a gift from above,
To prove and to show the Heavenly Father’s love.
He speaks of salvation and lifts up Jesus’ name.
When the Holy Spirit enters, a life is never again the same.
Sweet words of wisdom will fill the mouth with praise;
Great is the thanks of a soul that has been saved.
For they are greatly assured of the work of the cross;
So abundant is the peace – no longer are they lost.
The Light of the universe lives within alive;
For the Comforter makes residence inside.
Reach out and give comfort to another lost soul.
God’s love from within you now overflows
The Comforter even now gives a word of rhyme to touch the ear,
With some more comforting words for you to hear.

Revelations 2:29
He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

John 14:15-18
If ye love me, keep my commandments. 16 And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; 17 Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you. 18 I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you.
