Our Daily Bread 22 July 2018 Devotional

Topic: Home Anyway

Read: Psalm 34:15–18 Bible in a Year: Psalms 31–32; Acts 23:16–35

Scripture: My comfort in my suffering is this: Your promise preserves my life. Psalm 119:50

Message: Among the hundreds of articles I’ve written for Our Daily Bread since 1988, a few stick in my mind. One such article is from the mid-1990s when I told of a time our three girls were away at camp or on mission trips, so six-year-old Steve and I had some guy time. Our Daily Bread 22 July 2018 Devotional

As we were enjoying an excursion to the airport, Steve turned to me and said, “It’s not as much fun without Melissa,” his eight-year-old sister and sidekick. Neither of us knew then how poignant those words would turn out to be. Life indeed has not been “as much fun” for the years since Mell died in a car accident as a teenager. The passage of time may dull the ache, but nothing takes the pain away completely. Time cannot heal that wound. But here’s something that can help: listening to, meditating on, and savoring the solace promised by the God of all comfort.

Listen: “Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail” (Lamentations 3:22).

Meditate: “In the day of trouble he will keep me safe in his dwelling” (Psalm 27:5).

Savor: “My comfort in my suffering is this: Your promise preserves my life” (119:50).

Life can never be the same again when someone we love is gone. But God’s promises bring hope and comfort.

Prayer: Thank You, God, that You are near. You’re always by my side. I’m grateful for Your comfort in my pain and for Your peace.

Food for Thought: God’s Word is the true source of comfort.
