Comforting Others like God Comforts Us

Today, I am guest-posting on my friend Aleigha’s blog The Pen of the Writer. She has allowed me to share about comforting others in their pain, just as God comforts us in our pain. 

I’m realizing now more than ever how much heartache people endure. Lately, I’ve discovered that the people around me are constantly hurting. Everyone struggles to survive in this crazy life, and the only way they can thrive is if they lean on God’s strength.

The Lord needs to be our Comforter in the midst of suffering. But He also wants us to comfort others. We can do that by following His example.

Here are four ways He comforts us and how we can use them to comfort others:

1.  His words
The Bible has incredibly uplifting passages and verses through which God speaks to us. We can share these Bible verses and passages with those who are hurting to encourage them and lift them up when they’re in need. There are so many ways we can do this! We can send them a text with an encouraging verse, mail them a card with a chapter of Psalms, or simply have a conversation with them that points to the gospel. God uses His Word to speak life to us, and we can use it to speak life to others.

  1. Thanks for commenting, Britannia! Sadly, that can be true. Sometimes, situations feel like they’re too uncomfortable or painful to discuss with a friend; but God provides other believers so we can comfort each other. Yes, 1 Peter 5:7 is a great verse for dealing with pain!

  2. It’s hard to be hurt. Esp. in the church, because everyone wants you to put on a happy face. Sometimes it’s great to find a close friend who can be your shoulder to cry on. Sometimes, God is the only One you can cry with…1 Peter 5:7 is my favorite verse dealing with pain.

    Thanks for this post Tizzie 🙂
