Comfort, comfort, comfort!
Who doesn’t like to be comforted? The problem is we often seek it in all the wrong places.
For me, finding comfort in food is my drug of choice when I am seeking comfort in difficult times.
For some, it might be alcohol, drugs, or some kind of temporary fix to cause you to forget your pain.
Still for others, it is an escape into a world of fantasy, entertainment, the adrenaline of a fast life or a lustful, soulful, sexual experience.
In any case, we usually, if not always come away more empty than we went in.
But it’s time for you to see and taste of the “sweetest of love, where your heart becomes free and your shame is undone. “
We find those in the comfort that comes only from the Father of all comforts. If you are tempted in any way today, to go looking for comfort in all the wrong places, know that you will never be satisfied. But if you choose to look upon the face of Jesus, you will find satisfaction for your soul.

2 Corinthians 1:3-11 NLT
All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. God is our merciful Father and the source of all comfort. He comforts us in all our troubles so that we can comfort others. When they are troubled, we will be able to give them the same comfort God has given us. For the more we suffer for Christ, the more God will shower us with his comfort through Christ. Even when we are weighed down with troubles, it is for your comfort and salvation! For when we ourselves are comforted, we will certainly comfort you. Then you can patiently endure the same things we suffer. We are confident that as you share in our sufferings, you will also share in the comfort God gives us. We think you ought to know, dear brothers and sisters, about the trouble we went through in the province of Asia. We were crushed and overwhelmed beyond our ability to endure, and we thought we would never live through it. In fact, we expected to die. But as a result, we stopped relying on ourselves and learned to rely only on God, who raises the dead. And he did rescue us from mortal danger, and he will rescue us again. We have placed our confidence in him, and he will continue to rescue us. And you are helping us by praying for us. Then many people will give thanks because God has graciously answered so many prayers for our safety.
A few lines The song “Holy Spirit”
I have tasted and seen of the sweetest of love
When my heart becomes free and my shame is undone.
