Sunday Meditation--Comfort Food

Comfort foods are simple in their ingredients, in their preparation, and in their presentations. Comfort foods primarily feed our hearts and souls, rather than our bodies. Common foods such as mac and cheese, a spoonful of real mashed potatoes, a dish of chocolate bread pudding or a bowl of soup with a thick slice of bread are comfort foods. These beckon us to sit down and to feast, to eat until we are satisfied.

God has comfort food for us. God invites us to His banquet "For he satisfies the thirsty and fills the hungry with good things." Psalm 107:9 

"Comfort, whether human or divine, is pure and simple comfort." Hannah Whitall Smith in The God of All Comfort

Never be afraid
to trust an unknown future to a known God.
~ Corrie Ten Boom

For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD,
plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
Jeremiah 29:11 NIV
