Devotion: God The Comforter

"How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of those who bring good news, who proclaim peace, who bring good tidings..." Isaiah 52:7

There's almost nothing so comforting as a timely word of encouragement, especially it seems, that comes from someone who didn't even know you needed encouragement.

Many years ago I was trying to get some things organized in my house. I had 3 kids and they were all very young so caring for them required allowing things around the house slip more than I like. I'd been kind of hard on myself and had been praying about it. One Sunday after my Women's Sunday School class a woman in the class that I didn't know very well came right up to me and made small talk. As we chatted she out of blue looked at me and said, "You're much more organized than you think." This was like water to my soul. I knew The Lord lead her heart to make that observation and share it, just to give me comfort. God will do things like that. Pay attention, because sees you and is paying attention to every aspect of your life that Joys you or grieves you. He cares for you! ~Nicole
