God the Father is Comforter

 Jesus is the Comforter

    He sends another Comforter.

the Holy Spirit

Like the need to eat, drink, or breathe

I believe we have an inbuilt need for comfort.  

God the Father is described as a Comforter....

Jesus describes himself as a Comforter and lived His life comforting 

And  Jesus promises to send another Comforter.. The Holy Spirit

Pretty important aspect of God then !!

Everyone is looking for comfort

Increasingly in a godless UK , I suspect people are trying to find comfort in all the wrong things…. Although Costa coffee is pretty good 

 

On my bike   ..​​Riding home..  ​​Going fast

 

Soon be there​..​ Between the fields.. ​  On the path

  

Barbed fence​..​  Flashing by..​​  As I speed

 

Tour de France..​  Watch me now..​  In the lead

 

Huge rock..  ​​In the way..​​  Suddenly

 

Swerving now..​  Left and right..​  Unsteadily

 

S l o w  - m o..​​..  O v e r   I   g o ... ​ Onto barbed – wire fence

 

Cutting, tearing..​  Through my clothes..​  Ripping flesh

 

Blood stains..​​  Now appearing..​  On my shirt

 

But I’m young​..​  And I’m tough..​  Doesn’t hurt

 

Hurry now ..​​  Steadily..​​  Make it home

 

Drop my bike​..​  Open door..​​  See my mum

 

Floods of tears..​  Pour from me..​  In her embrace

 

Wounds bathed..​  Stinging stuff​..​  Gauze in place

 

​​​               Sorted

 

Fifty five years..​  From that day..​​  Further on

 

Scar remains..​​  Reminding me..​​  But pain has gone

 

Remember now..​  The comforting..​​ The kind and soothing care

 

And for me..​​  Security..​​​  That mum was there

 

​​​         How awful

 

For the people..​  Who go through..​ ​  This life alone

 

Who all their lives..​  Are searching for ..​ ​ The comfort zone

 

Who have to grow up..​  Big and strong..​  And face it by themselves

 

Must be hard..  ​​Must be tough..​  A kind of living Hell

 

‘ Big boys don’t cry’..​   Is just another evil lie..​  Coming from the liar

 

I’m so glad..​​  My Father God is called..​  The Comforter

 

That I know Him..​  And He loves me..​​  Forever and a day

 

And with the comfort ..​  That I get .. ​  I have enough to 

 

​​​            Give away
