I pray that God, the source of hope, will fill you completely with joy and peace because you trust in him. Then you will overflow with confident hope through the power of the Holy Spirit. Romans 15:13 NLT
Jesus is our faithful friend. He wants us to follow Him. He helps us surrender doubt and welcome His presence of PEACE. He guides us to the Father and arms us with everything we need to walk in the fullness of JOY.
Jesus knows the longing of our souls. As we seek Him with patience and a willingness to grow, He nurtures our faith and humbles hearts for His. He helps us understand why He is worthy of love as we learn to honor Him.
Sometimes, we wonder how to RECEIVE the love of Christ. But the Bible makes it clear. Romans 10:13 says, "For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved." Jesus longs for us to acknowledge WHY we need Him. He helps us welcome the fullness of His compassion and love as we pray.
Christmas is the perfect time to reflect on God's mercy and grace for EACH one of us. He sent Jesus to the world to bring light to the darkness and HOPE at the mention of His name. He walks with us as we journey together and with desire to RECEIVE the gift of His LOVE.
Oh, how we need to recognize God’s presence and be ready to welcome STRENGTH. The manger reminds us of the best gift of Christmas and allows us to understand God’s will was fulfilled by the purpose of His plan.
Loving God will welcome a spirit of content and ready us to welcome HOPE. It will help us remember to gratefully accept what has already been given to us. And it will remind us why we are valued, loved and held in the heart of His holiness.
♪ Joy to the world the Lord has come. Let earth receive her King. ♪ Oh, how we need You, Jesus. Come, Lord Jesus come...Come into the place You will be welcomed.
Dear God, thank you for blessing us with this wonderful season. As we open our hearts to welcome Jesus, help us embrace the fullness of PEACE and discover what happens when we remain faithful and TRUST. Fill us with everything we need to remember how to celebrate the blessing of His birth! Thank you for revealing Your presence in mighty ways! Ready our hearts to welcome the Savior! We’re so grateful we can count on YOU to love us through every moment of our lives. Thank you for the gift of Your precious Son. Amen
