Poetic Inspirations and Practical Applications for Blissful Living

Comfort of Christ

Comfort of Christ


 (Send as an Inspirational Christian Lighthouse e-card!)

Cherished is the comfort

That I know in my Lord

He embraces me with love

Strengthens me in His Word

The fierce storms may come

The winds may blow with rage

Yet my dear Lord comforts me

All my fears He does assuage


Sweet is this divine comfort

Blissful to know it full well

So of this precious Gift

My lips cannot help but tell


For darkness does come

In this world we now live

Yet our Father in Heaven

To us Light does give


For when we embrace Truth

We embrace God’s comfort too

When we make Christ Lord

We find peace we never knew


Christ knows how we feel

He suffered more than do we

He became a man like us

Suffering pain to set us free


Amazing that our God

Is not one aloof and afar

Truly He knows our pain

For He became as we are


We find in the Almighty

Compassion infinitely deep

We can cry on His shoulder

On His lap we can weep


And wipe from our eyes

He will each and every tear

He comforts with eternal love

Perfect love which casts out fear


Great comfort we find then

Through each and every trial

Each challenge we embrace

Rejoicing all the while


For even the challenges

Our Lord does make sweet

It is in the trials of life

That cross and crown do meet


With the comfort we receive

Let us then comfort one another

May we rejoice in our Father

As we console sister and brother


And praise our God on High

For this comfort we receive

How precious this gift to know

For all who in Christ believe

    I felt the comfort of Christ just this morning. Remembering that He died on the cross and disarmed the evil spirits of this world. They may try to scare me or stand in my way, but they cannot stand against Jesus!

    Have a Victorious Day!

      Thanks so very much for your words of wisdom and encouragement, Marianne!

      Praise Jesus for the joy we know in His presence and for the comfort we experience in His arms! As you wrote, His death and resurrection have disarmed all evil spirits, and we can stand strong in His victory!

      God’s graces and my gratitude always!
