Dear Readers of Country Squire Magazine I trust that You are well and healthy. Having suffered the super cold last week, may I recommend that You do Your level best to avoid it.
This Sunday I would like You to consider the human need for comfort. What does the Bible say about comfort?
I was discussing with a priest a man who recently died. He called the priest a week before he died and told him that he had a week to live. So the priest called him each day that week until the calls were no longer answered.
The priest quoted Psalm 23:4 above. The dying man was brave, and he was calm. He said he was ready for death, that as a soldier he knew death well and not to fear it. Nonetheless, the priest mentioned how the man depended on his daily calls of comfort and how he had lapses of faith in those last days, as many would.
Keep this prayer below for when You may need comfort. It may be at a time when You do not have a priest to guide You in Your dying days.
Have a lovely Sunday and a good week ahead. God Bless You all.
Words can’t express the ache in my heart. I feel pain every day. I pray to you as I am desperate for help. I need to know that you care, that you love me, be my refuge from pain, replacing my distress with peace, and be my strength when I feel weak and find it hard to carry on.
