Comfort Cross: A Mission to Spread God’s Love

The Comfort Cross is a wonderful piece of art. I had never seen one up close till I received mine for review. I've always been one to like to have something to hold when I pray. I really like how the wood feels in my hand. So smooth!  The carrying bag is very nice to hold it in your purse. I would think it would also be a nice gift for an elderly person or shut in. Sometimes we need the connections items like the Comfort Cross can give. We are tactile and visual beings. Not that we are Doubting Thomas's, just like how good it feels to see someone you haven't seen in a long time. The experience "fills" your senses and you sense it all through your body. Anyone would benefit from the gift of a comfort cross, cancer patients, graduation, baptism, anyone in need of comfort. Sales of a comfort cross help Christians in the Holy Land giving them a fair price for his work.

 

To share a little about the person making comfort crosses:

Issa is a Christian living on the outskirts of Bethlehem and has carved crosses and religious items his whole life to support his wife and three children. Issa and other Christian Artisans are struggling.

Comfort Crosses are individually carved from a single unique piece of beautifully grained olive wood pruned from the olive trees around Bethlehem the birthplace of Jesus. Christians have carved crosses like this for hundreds of years, originally for pilgrims and more recently tourists visiting the Holy Land.  The Comfort Cross is designed to fit comfortably into the palm of your hand as an aid to prayer or meditation. Ideal as your spiritual companion for easing children's fears, comforting worries and stresses of adults and focusing the prayer of the sick and elderly.

    I think you are right. I would have more focused and ful­fill­ing prayer if I had some­thing to hold on to. Hold it to my chest and thank God for Issa!

    Both of the pas­sages on the site are com­fort­ing, but my favorite com­fort­ing verse is Luke 12:6–7. Are not five spar­rows sold for two far­things, and not one of them is for­got­ten before God? But even the very hairs of your head are all num­bered. Fear not there­fore: ye are of more value than many sparrows.

    I loved this verse on their web­site:
    Praise be to God and Father of your Lord Jesus Christ,the father of com­pas­sion and the God of all comfort,who com­forts us in all our troubles..

    2 Corinthi­ans 1:3–4

    I like the verse in the pic­ture, When I am afraid, I will trust in you. It serves as a reminder that there is some­one out there watch­ing out for you, all you have to do is trust in him.
