Do you know how when you go on a vacation and no matter how wonderful it is, you cannot wait to get home?
For me.... the reason is, that it is my safe and comfy place!
That is how the LORD is for me. HE is my safe and comfy place. GOD gives me rest.
The world here swirls about, busy, busy, busy..... there are hurts, pain, activities, to-do-lists, sickness; the list goes on..... but my LORD is my happy place; my home, my comfy bed - my rest!
When I was a little girl (many, many years ago), and I would be with friends and take a fall, scrape my knee.... on my face, I would show bravery. I stood up brushed myself off and could even be found making a joke.
Then, after making some excuse, I hurried home, holding back my tears. I needed the comfort of my mom. She was my happy place - my comfort. I could safely cry my pain out and she would take care of me and make me feel better!
This is how the LORD is for us. No matter what is happening before us- there HE is waiting with open arms ready, willing and certainly able, to extend HIS arms of comfort.
Don't let those circumstances immerse you in hopelessness! They are temporary! Home is where the ...... (no, it is not) GOD is where the heart is!
Rest in the LORD and you will find comfort!
Thank YOU JESUS ❤
