ABC's of the Word - C

C Is our Letter for this week, and today the word God placed on my heart is
Comfort.
"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.
2 Corinthians 1:3-4
This morning as I sat down to read my daily Bible, I was praying for comfort my husbands Grandmother, Betty. She's been in the hospital since Sunday morning with pneumonia complicated by emphysema, congestive heart failure, and she's 84. The doctors thought she would come home yesterday, but they kept her again last night. Right in the middle of my prayer my phone rang, it was my husband and Grandma's gotten worse he said. His mom is on her way to the hospital now. I asked Brett are you praying about Grandma, he said all day, I said I know your praying for Grandma, but are you praying to God for you about how you feeling about Grandma. His answer no, probably not. He's very upset over his Gma (that' s what he calls her), they are very close. He took his past Tuesday off and spent the day with her at the hospital, he loves to make her laugh, and he wanted to encourager and pray with her.
So I ask for prayers for Betty that God would comfort her and take the sickness out of her body, and ask for prayer for my husband Brett that he would feel comfort from our Holy Father.
Grandma was the woman who took him to church when he was little and prayed for him for his salvation. When we met, she told me that she'd been praying for God to bring me to her precious grandson for a long time. She loves to sit now and talk scripture with her precious grandson, I'm praying God will grant them some more time together.
May you all find comfort in the Lord today, and every day.
Love,
Carol

Carol, I'm sorry to read that your husband's grandmother is hospitalized. Of course "comfort" is on your heart today and what a wonderful verse to share with us. And I'm reminded of "the peace that passes all understanding." I pray for comfort and peace for all!

Blessings, Lana

Whoa.. wild ride of emotions...coming to your site today. I always love to see your header...arms thrown out wide. hmmmm, then as I read of your husband and his Gma tears welled up. So precious is the love of a Gma...praying right now as God leads.
I too, needed to read His words about comfort today. Thank you for sharing and allowing us the privilege to pray.

Carol I have prayed for God to comfort her and heal her. I am also praying you both find comfort in God's will in this.

That is indeed one of my most favorite ministry verses.

Dear Carol,

All of you will be in my prayers. It is so difficult when one we love is sick, regardless of the age. There is no other love like the love of grandmother.

Hugs to you,
Stacy
