Jesus said, " Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls." Matthew 11:28-29 NLT
Jesus helps us cope with HOPE and readies us to receive His comfort and PEACE. He fills us with His presence and helps us find COURAGE and STRENGTH.
Jesus was born with a purpose. As we reflect on the events of His birth, we begin to appreciate the miracle of Christmas and recognize God sent His Son to save. He canceled the debt of our sin and did what was needed for us to gain the GIFT of salvation.
We can’t afford to turn our eyes away from Jesus. He provides clarity as we seek Him with all of our hearts and BELIEVE in His power to save. As we allow ourselves to be guided, He leads us to the Father so we will find courage as we’re cradled in care.
How can we find PEACE in difficult days of doubt? We can pray, read the Bible and choose to BELIEVE we are held by His holiness. Jesus brought light to the dark and continues to LOVE us through EVERY day of our lives.
We WILL find calm as we keep HOPE alive! God is HERE! He will ALWAYS take care of us. He offers the greatest gift of Christmas; our precious Jesus! How will you choose to welcome Him to dwell in your heart? He longs to have a living relationship with each one of us.
Dear God, humble our hearts and help us understand why we need the love of Jesus. Open our eyes to recognize this season of GOOD. Fill us with the presence of Your love and give us a better understanding of what has been done to bring PEACE on earth. Thank you for the gift of our Savior. Help us walk closer to Him, RECEIVE the compassion of His love and strengthen our relationship with the One who will always guide us in the right direction when we choose to follow Him. Thank you. Lord! Amen
