“All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. God is our merciful Father and the source of all comfort. He comforts us in all our troubles so that we can comfort others. When they are troubled, we will be able to give them the same comfort God has given us.”   (NLT)

 2 Corinthians 1:3-4

I’m sure you have heard several times that it’s not as important how you start but how you finish.  This fourth quarter is not necessarily about age.  It’s about everything that God has been doing in your life through all of its stresses – now go out and help others.  As He has listened, comforted, counseled and just been there to love on you, choose to be there for someone else.  Choose to use the message He has been building in your life.  You never know until eternity how much you have done to make a difference in someone else’s life.


Father God, I ask that you open my eyes to see and my ears to hear those that I can be that very comfort and encouragement that You have been to me.  I want to be that message that You have been honing and shaping into my life.  Just use me, Lord.
