John 14:26 But the Comforter, who is the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.

Unfortunate things happen to us because we’re living in a fallen world. People get laid off, people get divorced, loved ones pass away, and diseases come. Exercising our faith to prevent these things from happening is an option, but we’re not exempt from problems. 

When problems come, we have an unseen Comforter living inside of us. The Holy Spirit. He is a Comforter for a reason. His words are inspired by God. He can tell us what to do during these trying times. He can be the assurance, letting us know everything will be alright. He can give us day by day steps to get past the pain. He can do all of this and more, but we have to let Him comfort us.

If we’re stuck in our feelings, wanting to feel depressed and wanting people to feel sorry for us, there’s nothing He can do. But, if we want to get past the pain and confusion and move on with our lives, He’s there ready to comfort us.

Have faith in this great Comforter. He can change our mourning into gladness.
