“The Father will give you another Comforter to be with you forever, the Spirit of Truth…” (Jn 14:16, 17)

We arrived at Istanbul airport today. The whole place was very busy, no place to seat down, no place to eat. We had to wait four hours. We did not know what to do or where to go. We were tired and hungry. Then we remembered that there is a place to rest in the upper area of the airport. We went there, and to our surprise, they welcomed us like home. For a small amount of money, we could seat down, lie down and sleep, eat, use their free Internet and even take a shower. All was included in the price. This was like an oasis in the desert. The name of the place was “The Comfort Room”. 

We often forget that God has prepared everything for the journey of life, that we are not alone, we are not orphans. We suffer and weep and complain that things are too difficult in life. We say we trust God but the truth is that we do not. We trust ourselves, in our strength and wisdom. Life can be so much easier if we can find the Comforter, the Spirit of Truth who sets free, who gives rest to the soul and body. The Holy Spirit is the One who guides us, who over-rules our mistakes, who walks alongside us, every moment, to encourage and to give peace. As a child of God, the Holy Spirit is with you always. You are not alone. Therefore you do not have to feel alone! You do not have to feel poor, ugly or rejected! Come to the Upper Comfort Room where saints rest and become refreshed. Jesus has paid the bill for your peace! Just a drop of liquid joy is stronger than depression and all fears! 
When the strange crowd pushes you here and there, and like Noah’s dove you find no rest for your feet, then run back to the Ark, run back to Jesus! There is no other place I know to redirect your tired bones. In a foreign land, I have tested of His eternal Comfort today… Have peace!
The journey continues…
