Comfort My People

Isaiah 40:1 “Comfort, comfort my people,” says your God

With Thanksgiving coming up next week the holiday season is in full swing. Every Thanksgiving I always remember my Paw Paw that passed away on Thanksgiving morning. He loved the holiday season especially Christmas. Being the father of 12 he had 23 grandkids. Every Christmas he would give each of us a brown paper bag with fruit, nuts, candy canes and sometimes a $1 or $2 dollar bill. To me this was always a big deal. For the last few years many of his grandkids and great grand’s gather together to provide a hot breakfast for local children that’s Christmas is being provided by the local fire department. This is just one small way that we can continue our Paw Paw’s love of the holidays and does what The Word of God instructs us to do “comfort His people.” 

This holiday season my heart is heavy for many of my family, church family and friends who lost loved ones this past year and will be spending their first holiday without those so dear to them. I would like to ask each person reading this devotion to pray for everyone you know that may be in this situation. Let’s all commit this verse to heart and follow what the Father has asked of us. Let’s comfort those people around us.

This devotion was written from the heart of Beth Reed. I would love to hear your comments.

  1. Thank you Beth! This devotion means so much to me! I have so much to be thankful for. I know where my daddy is but of course the holidays will be different! I'm so thankful that you carry out your grandfathers dreams of helping others. Melted my heart! Pamela Britt Malone
