Blessed be … the Father of mercies and God of all comfort,who comforts us in all our troubles… —2 Corinthians 1:3-4
Thomas Moore was an Irish songwriter and poet who brought joy to many who saw him perform. Yet, his personal life was troubled by repeated heartaches, including the death of all five of his children. Moore’s personal wounds make these words of his all the more meaningful:
“Here bring your wounded hearts, here tell your anguish; earth hath no sorrow that heaven cannot heal.” This moving statement reminds us that meeting with God in prayer can bring healing to the troubled soul.
If you are broken and sorrowful, take refuge in God and you will feel and know His comfort.
