Each of us, at some time in the past, has found the need to lean on the comfort and encouragement of someone else. All of us have found that in a difficult situation, or perhaps even in the middle of a major tragedy in our lives, we have thought we could not make it through on our own. At those times, we have relied upon the strength and comfort of fellow Christians, friends and family members and in some cases perfect strangers to help pull us through. As Christians, we probably found ourselves leaning heavily upon the outstretched arms of our Lord. Whether directly receiving comfort from Him in our prayers, or indirectly receiving comfort from Him through another person whom He has placed in our path, God is our comfort.
