It's active. It's sacrificial. It's love.
It's essential for us to really take a look at the world. Not just our world, but the world where every type of tragedy or beauty can be searched out every single day.
The need for comfort is great. The need for sincere, working, compassion.
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort those who are in any trouble, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.
2 Corinthians 1:3 & 4
Christ allows us all to suffer in some way. We live in a world full of hurting people...and we can share with them the hope that only Jesus Christ can give.
Three years after my family lost my sister, Anna, I poured my heart into a drawing, which I labeled "Hand of Comfort". Inspired by God's faithful hand in writing my family's story. He gave us Anna...and He took her away. But, throughout the entirety of her life and death, His constant hand of comfort remained.
I've been given the opportunity to offer a print of "Hand of Comfort" up for auction, with all proceeds going to Sufficient Grace Ministries--an amazing ministry that focuses on encouraging women and families who are hurting. For more information on this auction, which includes over 140 beautiful items (taking place at the Caring for Carleigh FB page--you'll need to "like" the page before you'll be able to bid), please click here.
Make sure to hop over, and show your support for Sufficient Grace Ministries. Thank you, Loves!
