Divine love soothes and comforts me.

Many times I have experienced another's soothing presence. Perhaps I felt someone stroke my forehead to comfort me through illness.

Perhaps I rested in the arms of a loved one when I was overcome by sadness. Such tender care in the physical world is an outward manifestation of God's love.

Whenever I am afraid, whenever I am uncertain of my next step, I allow the spirit of God to comfort me. Wrapped in God's loving embrace, I know I will never be alone.

I breathe in that knowledge and settle into the depths of peace. The love of Spirit is unwavering. The embrace of God's love is all-encompassing. I am forever and in all ways in the care and comfort of God.

Let your steadfast love become my comfort according to your promise to your servant. --Psalm 119:76
