the God of ALL comfort

What if I told you that a purpose in our afflictions is so that we would be able to comfort others in the midst of their afflictions with the same comfort we received from God?

What if I told you that the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ is the God of ALL comfort and comforts us in ALL our afflictions?

What if I told you that our comfort is abundant through Christ Jesus?

What if God told you all these things through the very scripture He inspired?

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of ALL comfort, who comforts us in ALL our affliction SO THAT we will be able to comfort those who are in any affliction with the comfort WITH WHICH we ourselves are comforted by God.  For just as the sufferings of Christ are ours in abundance, so also our comfort is abundant through Christ.  2 Corinthians 1:3-5 (NASB)

Believe, trust and be comforted …

Oh Lord, thank you for comforting me in the midst of my cancer and other afflictions!

About bwebbjr

A grandfather, father, husband, man, and a child of God who is following Christ Jesus and working out his salvation with fear and trembling; for it is God who is at work IN me, both to will and to work for His good pleasure (Philippians 2:12-13). I dodged my first bullet with cancer when a cancerous polyp was removed in a sigmoid colectomy surgery in August 2007. Four years later, in the midst of a second colectomy surgery we discovered I had Stage IV metastatic colon cancer. Rather than colectomy surgery I had colostomy surgery, which now means the colostomy bag is a part of my everyday life ... with the emphasis on life. God has given us a peace beyond understanding as my wife and I have traveled this journey. By the grace of God I am blessed to be a 6 plus year cancer survivor aka warrior. In writing, I am often wrestling with my own personal struggles and beliefs and in the midst God leads me to a lesson He wants me to learn ... or sometimes He simply touches me in the revelation of Himself. My hope is that the result you see here might touch your heart and glorify God. And let me be clear ... I am not the only one with something to say. Please join in the conversation sharing your faith, your cancer experiences, etc. I would love to hear from you. Bernie
