[e-Devotionals]1997-10-05 - Our Lord the Comforter

My prayer is that you will meditate on these verses today and find comfort in our Lord. All verses today are from the Holy Bible, New Living Translation, (Wheaton, IL: Tyndale House Publishers, Inc.) 1996.

Revelation 7:16-17 They will never again be hungry or thirsty, and they will be fully protected from the scorching noontime heat. For the Lamb who stands in front of the throne will be their Shepherd. He will lead them to the springs of life-giving water. And God will wipe away all their tears.

Slow me down Lord, calm my mind, calm my spirit Lord, slow me down to rest in Your love. Take my burdens Lord, my yoke is so heavy and yours is a perfect fit. Slow me down Lord, comfort me in Your loving arms. Slow me down Lord, give me Your peace. Slow me down Lord, so I can feel Your mercy and Your grace. Slow me down Lord, so I can feel Your presence. Slow me down Lord, so I can fully express my gratefulness and gratitude for what You have done and do for me. Slow me down Lord, so I can fully realize what an awesome, loving God You are. Slow me down Lord, so I can focus on You and not the world. Slow me down Lord, so I will repent of and confess my shortcomings to you. Slow me down Lord, so I can feel Your forgiveness. Slow me down Lord, slow me down, in the name of our Lord and Savior Christ Jesus, Amen.
