Comfort Again

Comfort Again
by Marie Good

I could sense the familiar dampness coming to my eyes as I spoke aloud the words from the Lord’s scripture. "Though you have made me see troubles many and bitter you will restore my life again; from the depth of the earth you will again bring me up. You will increase my honor and comfort me once again."—Psalms 71:20, 21.

I was at the place of weariness that has come each time I feel the simple distraction of a quiet trigger, one that hits the core of a wound that only I can see. My joy began to deflate like a balloon as it faces the fate of a sharp pin piecing through its thin latex skin. How many times will God have patience to patch up my brokenness? Deep down I feared the outcome of what would happen to me if the Lord became tired of my distress.

As I read these two verses, my heart heard the truth being spoken very clearly! When I see troubles, God will restore me AGAIN! When I feel like life is too hard to experience, God promises to comfort me AGAIN! When I feel like I continue to slip down a dark hole with nothing to grab onto, God says He will lift me up AGAIN!

Tears of gratitude streamed down my face with this new revelation that God will never get tired of me needing Him. Despite the fact that I have those hard moments when it feels like salt is being sprinkled on some old wounds, I am reminded that God’s delight comes as I trust Him with some of the most intimate fragments of my heart. God has gently lead me to a beautiful place, one where I completely depend on Him for my strength! And I once AGAIN find a place of rest!
