Comforted by God - 2 Cor.1.3-4

This morning I woke up very heavy hearted missing my family all over the world. It moved me to the point of many tears. In my heaviness, I cried out to God for His comfort. I asked God to please help me...please comfort me...please strengthen my heart. As I called out to the Lord this Scripture came into my mind...
2 Cor. 1:3 Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, 4 who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God.
I was soooo comforted by these 2 verses and the truth that my God is the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort. In my past I would go to food, drink, sex and other to try to bring comfort to my hurts and suffering. The older I get the more I want to go to God ALONE for my comfort.
What about you? Where do you go for comfort in your life? Do you go to God ALONE?
