“But God, who comforts the downcast, comforted us by the coming of Titus.” 2 Corinthians 7:6
Owen Shramek lived for only twenty minutes after he was born. His father, Dustin, struggled with anger. During the first months after the baby’s death, Dustin admits he felt very little comfort from God. He prayed, “God, I know You are sovereign. I know that You are in control. But the least You could do is draw near to us and give us comfort.”
Well, on the six month anniversary, Dustin was reading through the mail. Letters came from God’s people all over the world. He came across the Bible verse: “But God, who comforts the downcast, comforted us by the coming of Titus.” God was answering his prayer through fellow Christians!
Dear one, be comforted. We are part of the Body of Christ. And it’s through this Body that He ministers to us. Even in our darkest days.
