Luke 11:13 If you then, though you are evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father in heaven give the Holy Spirit to those who ask him!
John 14:16 And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another counselor to be with you forever.
John 14:18-19 I will not leave you as orphans; I will come to you. Before long the world will not see me anymore, but you will see me.
When I was four years old, I’d run to my father’s lap when I needed comforting. He had his own special chair, and I’d sit with him if Mom fussed at me. I’d run straight for his lap and the comfort of that old chair.
I lost my daddy when I was four years old on Christmas Day, but I’d still run to his chair. Somehow, I felt closer to him.
Now, both he and the chair are gone. Yet, I still run to my Father’s lap when I need comforting, and I feel a gentle hand upon my shoulder. My heavenly Father is and will always be there for me even though my earthly one was called home.
When you’re feeling low, need help, or just need comforting, run to your Father’s lap. Seek Him out through His Word and allow Him to talk to you. You’ll feel better. It took me many years before I realized this. I used to feel so alone and lonely, like I had no one to go to until I discovered God is always with me, and I’m never alone. I lost my earthly father at a young age, but I gained my heavenly Father who will never leave me alone.
Develop a personal relationship with Him. You can call on Him anytime, and you don’t even need a quarter or a phone. You’ll be calling someone who cares through a wireless connection that
always works. In the loss of loved ones and other world problems, my personal relationship with Jesus has been my greatest comfort. God sent His Comforter to help me through what I must endure on this earth. Won’t you ask him to do the same for you, if you haven’t?
