Finding Comfort

I don't know about you but I am one of those people that when I am down or upset I turn to certain things for comfort.
I have comfort food-Ben & Jerry's, Hawaiian pizza, and of course diet coke.
Comfort tv- Golden Girls makes me feel comfortable. (yes I realize this is strange but I have been watching it since I was in high school)
Comfortable place- my sister's, mom, or dad's house
Just hearing my mama and daddy's voices makes me feel better.
I even have a special blanket. (it is actually a fitted bed sheet...long story that needs its own post)
Over the past few days I have been in the need for comfort, and the regular stuff just isn't working it.
I was so graciously reminded that God is a God of comfort.
Jesus said, "Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest." Matthew 11:28
During these days of struggle I have not been able to eat good or sleep good. My mind has been racing, thinking of a million things at once. So at this moment I need rest. I have spent time in prayer, in the word, and just being still. I have even asked trusted friends to pray for me and with me. And in the midst of all the worry I have found rest. I have a peace that transcends all understanding. (Philippians 4:7)
So if you need comfort don't struggle alone. Let Jesus carry you through your troubles. Let me be your prayer partner. If you are reading this you are prayed for already. I love you and God loves you.
