I am at home in the presence of God and comforted by the Holy Spirit.
Surrounded by comfortable items--like a well-worn pair of blue jeans, a warm bathrobe or a favorite chair--I feel at home and relaxed. While these are material comforts, there is an eternal comfort that lies beyond the physical world.

Jesus declared, "I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you forever." This Comforter--the Holy Spirit--is with me always. The Holy Spirit comforts my soul, eases my mind and calms my emotions.

When I center my thoughts on God and wrap myself in an awareness of God's loving presence, I experience the ultimate comfort. Filled with the Holy Spirit, I am home.

But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things.--John 14:26 (KJV)
