Comfort...

Hopefully, you've recently read Life with Lynnie (LwL).

If you have, you'll know that I've discussed being weak.  And, suffering.

There's something I'd like you to know.

I'm able to stand up, walk and even do things in my apartment, now.  Like cooking, doing dishes, and minor cleaning. 

For this, I'm thankful.

There's something else I'm thankful for.

I'm able to drive!  The driving isn't a problem.

Getting out of my van isn't a problem.  However, getting into my van is still a bit difficult, but has gotten much easier.

Okay.  I'll let you know... I still have to use my arm to lift up my leg, so I can get into my vehicle.

Even though I am not healed from the physical problem that has caused me much suffering, I am improved in many ways.  Like I just mentioned.

Are you wondering why I have discussed so much about how my health problem has been affecting me?

Like I've said in the past, I'm thankful that He helps me, even though I have been suffering.

After all, He comforts me.  Not just physically, but also emotionally.

By letting people know about what I've been going through isn't to make me feel happy.  It's to help others... who are also suffering.

Thinking of this, brought to mind 2 Corinthians 1:3-4, "Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort;
Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God."

Yes, may He be blessed, since He is the Father of mercies and the God of all comfort.  Yes, He comforts us, in our tribulation, so that we may be able to help comfort those who are also suffering.

Some people may not believe this is why I discuss this, here on LwL.  But, it is true.

In the past, I've written about things that affected me and my life.  As a result, I received messages, and/or e-mail from people who read what I wrote about.

Some wanted to encourage me.

Others, let me know that they were encouraged by reading what I had told them.  For this, I felt blessed.  After all, God told us that we are able to comfort others.

Again, I must admit, I am thankful.  And, always will be.

Thank You, Lord!


Until next time...
