“As a mother comforts her child, so will I comfort you.” Isaiah 66:13
Extreme coincidence tonight that I have been awakened by odd requests from my children…..one was to massage arms and hands, which is not a norm, but okay. The sense of peace and comfort that shown on her little face was so cute. Another later was my son crying that his leg hurt. He couldn’t quite tell me what or why, but said he had this pain. It could have lost circulation or been a “charlie horse”…who knows. But as I was rubbing his leg, he turned to me and said, “pray for me, mommy” so I did and within minutes, he was fast back asleep.
I have always found comfort in my mother, even in my adult years. A sense of security, protection, encouragement and the opportunity to provide that for another human being is nothing short of amazing. I am overwhelmed by even the small insight this has given me into how great the comfort of God could even compare.
