Comforting Others

A Poem written By Susan Smith-Allen

 

Comforting Others

When you were down and blue,

God always comforted you.

So when you see a hurting friend,

you only need to lend

a helping hand out to them.

When they have a problem,

remember they are important to God, too,

and He will comfort them through you.

All it takes, on your part, is a little effort

so you may be of some comfort.

To someone in need

You will be a friend indeed.

When someone is troubled,

their problems seem doubled.

Then you reach out

To who is in doubt.

It helps for you to be there

when all they have are tears.

When you comfort and console,

that person will again feel whole.

You’ll give them courage

As you continue to encourage.

God will help you comfort others

As you treat them as sisters and brothers.

 

When it is a stranger,

don’t think of the danger.

Think of helping him

no matter how grim

It looks like to you.

God knows what to do.

There will always be a patrol

because God is in control.

He would not have

placed him in your path

if God knew He’d have

to use His wrath.

 

There is always someone

who thinks that everyone

Knows they have a problem.

Then it’s best to let them

come to you; but don’t wait too long.

Always be ready

and also be friendly.

You will know what to do

because God will help you

(save them from themselves).

Just think; this might even begin

their lives of being born-again.

God will send people to you

for you to comfort,

as He had done for you.

2 Corinthians 1:3,4—Blessed be the God the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort those who are in any trouble, with the comfort which we ourselves are comforted by God.

Psalm 139:3—You chart the path ahead of me and tell me where to stop and rest.  Every moment you know where I am.
