Five Minute Friday – Comfort

On Fridays I link to Lisa Jo Baker and take only 5 minute to write a post. Great for making me to sit and write with total freedom. Here goes:



As I listen to the rain teeming down I am filled with a sense of peace. We had a long dry spell which helped the flooded victims in Minden. However, it became so dry that we needed rain because of the possibility of forest fires. So now it rains. Just in time. Wonderful.

To me comfort is peace in every situation. And I am learning to do this. If I stay focused on the One who created me I can always bring that to mind – no matter what situation I am in. What a great comfort that is.

Now cozy comfort is sitting with a blanket and a good book, usually the Bible or an historical Christian fiction and soaking up the peace that I find there.

Most of my favourite Bible verses are ones of comfort:

Do not fear – Philippians 4:6-8
Let God be my strength – Isaiah 40:31
Trust in the Lord – Proverbs 3:5
He gives me peace – Psalm 23

I find comfort in Praise music:

My Redeemer Lives
Blessed be Your Name

I find comfort in Hymns:

Be Thou my Vision
Blessed Assurance
Trust and Obey

So putting these all together I can feel comfort in every situation.

Time is up. What do you think of when you hear the word “COMFORT”?

Have a great weekend,



Linking in with Lisa-Jo Baker and Five Minute Fridays.

Time’s up. What do you think of when you think of the word COMFORT?

1. Write for 5 minutes flat for pure unedited love of the written word.
2. Link back here and invite others to join in {you can grab the button code in my blog footer}
3. Go leave some comment props for the five minute artist who linked up before you {and if you love us, consider turning off word verification for the day to make it easier for folks to say howdy}

It’s a great way to catch your breath at the end of a long week.




  1. Dear Janis
    I am thankful with you for the rain! Comfort to me means finding my security in our Lord Jesus not only for eternity, but for the life on this side of heaven as well. Oh, the comfort when I wake up in the mornings, knowing that I don’t have to face one second of the new day alone. Some days when I need to stay in bed when the Fm/CFS is too bad, I find so much comfort be just resting in His love.
    Blessings to you

I love to connect with you.
