Unspoken Comfort

Description

Sometimes the best word is the unspoken one by the friend who just sits with you.

Job 16:5-7   But my mouth would encourage you; comfort from my lips would bring you relief. “Yet if I speak, my pain is not relieved; and if I refrain, it does not go away. Surely, God, you have worn me out; you have devastated my entire household.

When my dad died the comfort I valued most was from a friend who didn’t say anything.  He didn’t try to comfort me or say that dad was in a better place or that it was all part of God’s plan; he just sat with me. Sometimes we don’t want the words; we can’t hear the words of comfort that others offer us.

Sometimes the best word is the one that goes unspoken by the friend who just sits with you.
