I was surprised when I opened the Daily Word this morning after talking to my niece’s sister and saw the word for today. I felt I wanted to, yea, post it on Facebook today because we are all feeling a sense of loss for one thing or another or another.
I am comforted by God’s loving presence in my heart.
After the devastating loss of a loved one, I may feel over-whelmed with grief as I struggle to reconcile my life moving forward without this person.
I find solace as I turn to God in prayer. I place my hand over my heart and with each beat I begin to feel a growing sense of peace. In this quiet moment, I surrender to the living presence of God within. Divine love is the soothing, comforting balm that my emotions so desperately seek.
Like a child comforted by a loving parent, I feel nurtured and cared for by my Creator. My connection with the Divine supports me in moving through sadness. In these sacred times, my heart is healed and I am comforted.
Isaiah 49:13 For the Lord has comforted his people, and will have compassion on His suffering ones.
