a melt down

"Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God." 2 Corinthians 1:3-4

"Mrs. Williams, those snowmen are going to melt next to the fire."

His statement sounded true, but i knew beyond a doubt it could never happen.
The snowmen weren't real and neither was the fire. No threat of a melt down existed.

In this busy, real world, melt downs can loom over any day. Schedules and deadlines abruptly change, a student's outburst rattles the class, bad weather barricades all inside and homework goes undone.  Just when you feel nothing else can possible go wrong, it does.  A call from home, changes everything.  The time is ripe for a melt down. What can you do?

The best, most complete comfort doesn't come from what we do, but from what our God does.  In times of trouble, clinging to Him fills and stills the soul.  No one understands our hardships and frustrations as completely as God.  When you can't take anymore, let Him take you in His Arms. His compassion will be your comfort... and yours in turn, will be comfort for others.  Pass it on.

Thank You, Father!

have a peace-filled day!
