Jeremiah 8:18 ” O my Comforter in sorrow, my heart is faint within me.”

Ok, can we all admit to ourselves that the past months of dealing with COVID 19 and the pandemic have been downright hard!  It’s been difficult being isolated from family and friends.  It’s been scary listening to the dire warnings and daily statistics of positive cases and deaths.  Brother, it’s even been apprehensive just going to the grocery store!  That’s why when I read the above verse this morning it brought me back to a basic foundational truth…our God is the Father of all comfort,  Who comforts us in all our troubles… (II Corinthians 1:3)  So even when I’m not at my best, He’s there to comfort me with the Holy Spirit…and like Isaiah 40:29-31 tells me, “He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak.  Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; But those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength.  They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.”
