May you feel God’s comfort surrounding you

When I was a little girl, I was afraid of the dark. (OK, I kind of still am.) When I woke up in the middle of the night, I was scared to even put my hands outside the covers, let alone get up. To make myself feel a little braver, I would imagine God was hugging me. I could practically feel his arms around me.

It’s a good thing to imagine -- God’s arms hugging you. I pray you feel God’s comfort enfolding you like a loving, hearty hug.

Even though I walk through the darkest valley,
I will fear no evil,
for you are with me;
your rod and your staff, they comfort me.
-- Psalm 23:4
