Comfort Food

The devotion from ODB today made reference to "Chicken Soup for Your Soul." The books have been runaway hits with their touching stories. Of course didn't the title just draw us to it as it brought us back to when we were a kid and the only thing that could cure our cold was a warm blanket and a bowl of Mom's chicken soup? We call that kind of food comfort food, because when our body doesn't feel well it makes us feel better.

I think it's great that beyond these books we have comfort food for our souls, for real. When we are aching spiritually we can find comfort in God's word. Perhaps it Psalm 23 or Romans 8, whatever the passage is that you have tucked away it can bring comfort in those times of need. This coming Sunday we will read from Psalm 30 with one of my favorite verses, "Weeping may endure for a night, but joy is going to come in the morning." Now that's comfort food.

Isn't it great how God feeds us?
