Comfort is an easy thing to define but can be difficult to grasp-especially in our troubled world. All around are challenges, some great and some small, and we all feel weighed down by obligations that at times threaten to overwhelm. When the stress presses in, we seek comfort, and this little book points to a very big God who is the eternal source of peace and hope.

Each day of the year offers an inspirational message, an uplifting scripture, and a peace-filled quote. These words of comfort are fitting for experiences from minor sadness to profound grief. It is the perfect gift for anyone going through the sadness of illness, job loss, the death of a loved one, or any of the many disappointments of life.

In a world of pain, loss, and wrong turns, the need for gentle words of hope, courage, peace, and comfort is everywhere. Because God is a God of comfort, the messages in this little book offer a big hug of comfort and the promise of better things to come.

Comfort. It's an easy thing to define, but it can be a difficult thing to find, especially in our troubled world. All around us we see challenges -- some great and some small. And we have obligations that at times threaten to overwhelm us. So where can we turn to find comfort? To God, of course. And this book can help.

This book contains 365 devotional readings intended to help you find comfort in the everyday corners of your life -- comfort at home, comfort at work, comfort at church, comfort at play, and comfort everyplace in between. This book is also intended to make you smile and to make you think. It contains inspirational Bible verses, thought-provoking quotations, and brief essays -- all of which can lift your spirits and guide your path.

So today, as you embark upon the next step of your life's journey -- a journey that can and should be a cause for celebration -- give yourself an emotional hug by thinking of ways you can find -- and keep -- God's blessings. And while you're searching for the peace God has promised, be quick to share it too. When you do, you'll discover that comfort is like honey: It's hard to spread it around without getting some onyourself.

Finding Comfort in an Uncomfortable World

Peace I leave with you; My peace I give to you;
not as the world gives do I give to you.
Do not let your heart be troubled, nor let it be fearful.

John 14:27 NASB

Sometimes the world can be an uncomfortable place. We may find ourselves rushing from point A to point Z with scarcely a moment to spare, all the while being bombarded by news that seems to signify imminent doom. How, then, can we find the assurance and comfort we so earnestly desire? By relying on God.

Today you are beginning a year of personal and spiritual growth. So as a gift to yourself, to your family, and to your friends, promise that you will do all within your power to seek and maintain the inner peace God gives. It is offered freely; it has been paid for in full; it is yours for the asking. So ask. And then share.

True contentment is a thing as active as agriculture. It is the power of getting out of any situation all there is in it.

- G. K. Chesterton
