“As a mother comforts her child, so will I comfort you.” Isaiah 66:13 NIV
Part of me finds comfort in this verse, but another part of me does not. Does it mean as I comfort my kids or the ideal mother? When my children are hurting, either physically or emotionally, I would stop at nothing to ease their pain and comfort them. But other times, when their distress is whiney, annoying or uncalled for, I couldn’t feel less comfort. I know in my heart that God is better; He is perfect and meets us exactly where we are, giving us exactly what we need. I still haven’t figured that out completely as a mother, but I’m glad that I have a perfect God from whom to learn.
