II Corinthians 1:3-4 ” Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, Who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God.”

When you’re going through the crushing weight of physical, mental, or spiritual distress, you’ll receive two kinds of compassion and consolation from people.  You’ll hear sympathetic, sensitive words from friends who really do care, but have never gone through what you’re experiencing.  But then there are the empathetic words of those who have lived through what you are currently enduring.  These wise words ring true with encouragement and reassurance that… Yes, God is still there and with His love and compassion you’ll make it through.
