The Widow Comforted. God the Orphan’s Father. by Mary Winslow

Leave thy fatherless children, I will preserve them alive; and let thy widows trust in Me.—Jer. xlix. 11.

Oh the comfort of being one with Jesus, who is the widow’s Husband and the Father of the fatherless! Take Him now just as He is, and He will comfort your widowed heart, draw you sensibly near to Himself, and sooth your bereaved spirit as the dearest earthly friend could not. You need care for nothing now, since God is the Father of the orphan, to whom you may go with all your anxieties and concerns on their account. Fain would I comfort you with the comfort wherewith / have been comforted of God. God is love, all love, His heart is an ocean of love. One sigh, one look, the faintest desire after Jesus and His salvation, based upon a believing acceptance of the promise, “Him that cometh unto Me I will in no wise cast out” is quite enough to comfort us, and to give the hope of meeting where there is no separation throughout an endless eternity. God be praised for the hope He has given us, and for the earnest in our own souls of the glory that awaits us in a blessed hereafter. Cheer up. “A Father of the Fatherless, and a Judge of the widow is God in His holy habitation.”
