When the weather is cold, I might find myself bundling up at home with extra blankets, turning up the thermostat, or warming myself in front of a crackling fire. I appreciate these resources, as they greatly enhance my feelings of ease, comfort, and stability.
However, this may not always be my experience. Sometimes it can seem like life has rudely yanked off my cozy blankets and thrown me out in the cold! At such times, I am grateful for my faith. Instead of yearning for outer conditions to change, I rest in the true source of my comfort—Divine Spirit within me. Even in the midst of the roughest winter, I am warmed by faith and encouraged by the presence of the Divine.
This is my comfort in my distress, that your promise gives me life.—Psalm 119:50
