Maybe it will help to see first what comfort is not. Comfort is not a “pep talk” urging you to hang in there, to tough it out, or to hold it together. Comfort is not an attempt to explain why bad things happen to people. Comfort is not a bunch of positive words about God being in control and everything being okay. All of these things may be good and useful in time, but they do not fill our primary need for comfort. People comfort us primarily by feeling our hurt and sorrowing with us. Jesus illustrated the ministry of comfort when His friend Lazarus died (see John 11).
His response is especially interesting in light of what He did next: raise Lazarus from the dead (see vv. 38–44). Why didn’t Jesus simply tell the grieving Mary and Martha, “No need to cry, My friends, because in a few minutes Lazarus will be alive again”? Because at that moment they needed someone to identify with their hurt. Jesus met Mary’s and Martha’s need for comfort by sharing in their sorrow and tears. Later He performed the miracle that turned their sorrow to joy. We receive comfort when we know we are not suffering alone.
You may experience a wide range of feelings about your conflicts. You may feel sad, depressed, hopeless, abandoned, frightened, and even angry. You may cry about what is happening. You may feel emotionally drained. Or you may get angry at the situation, at your parents or friends, or even at God for allowing it to happen. It is important to understand that all these feelings are normal and natural. It is the way God wired you. Your emotions are a built-in release valve to help you handle the inner pain.
