This is an old blog that I started in 2006. I keep it because it has a lot of historical data and people still come here. As of September 2016, no new updates will be made here. All new blog posts and writing/publishing related news will be posted over on my new site at www.jenniferhudsontaylor.net.

Word of Inspiration: He Who Comforts

"I, even I, am He who comforts you. Who are you that you should be afraid of a man who will die. And of the son of a man who will be made like grass? And you forget the Lord your Maker who stretched out the heavens and laid the foundations of the earth." (Isaiah 51:12-13)

Why do we allow situations on earth to overtake our reason and belief? We know that God is so much bigger than all our problems, yet we lose sight of Him in the midst of the pouring rain. If you are in the middle of a storm, take cover in the Word and in His presence. Close your eyes and be still and KNOW that He is GOD. Ask for his peace and comfort and then be quiet and listen. Try not to list long requests in how you want Him to deliver you from your situation, but listen to his comfort and allow Him to bring you through it. You don't need to know the details. Trust Him. We walk by faith, not by sight.
