It has been four years to this date that my pastor who I had known 27 years of his 30 years in Pastoral ministry went home to be with the Lord. He impacted countless of lives, whom I was one of many. I thank God for his leadership, his example, and his legacy he has left in his family and church family. Gone but never forgotten.

God is Our Comforter II Cor. 1:3-4

 Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort those who are in any trouble, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God

Isaiah 61:1-3

61 “The Spirit of the Lord God is upon Me,
Because the Lord has anointed Me To preach good tidings to the poor;
He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted, To proclaim liberty to the captives,
And the opening of the prison to those who are bound;
To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord,
And the day of vengeance of our God; To comfort all who mourn,
To console those who mourn in Zion,
To give them beauty for ashes, The oil of joy for mourning,
The garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; That they may be called trees of righteousness, The planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified.”
