"May your unfailing love be my comfort..."
Have you ever experienced something that made you smile?
Smile at the fierce way that God shows His love to us?
Tonight was one of those moments.
My dad has not been feeling very well and suffering from a kidney stone. Tonight he was admitted to the hospital so that he could receive antibiotics & fluids. My mom is visiting my Grandma in Indiana, so I drove my dad to the hospital.
It's been a frustrating month of health issues for him. We sat in the waiting room while they prepared a bed and I asked my dad if I could pray for him. I prayed specifically:
"Lord, just surround my dad with comfort. Put a hedge of comfort and peace around him".
In a few minutes, we were getting him settled into his room and a smiling, tiny nurse came in. She said, "I will be taking care of you tonight. My name is Comfort".
So I actually asked her (because I didn't believe my own ears)...."Did you say your name was Comfort?"
And she just smiled and said, "Yes, Comfort".
My dad & I shared a smile. There is no coincidence here. Not sure about you, but I have never heard the name Comfort before tonight. We even told the nurse about what I just prayed and she had a little twinkle in her eye.
Thank you, God, for comfort and Comfort. May she take excellent care of my dad tonight.
