For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Isaiah 9: 6
Christmas provides opportunities to welcome Jesus. Sometimes, we look for "larger than life" moments. But we can find Him in the humble places of our hearts, when He helps us witness the beauty of His never-ending love.
God knows how to open our eyes. He orchestrates our lives in the timing of His will and chooses how He will reach us. He helps us welcome the Savior and gives courage to persevere.
We need Christmas and the PEACE of knowing how it feels to faithfully TRUST. We need to be held by the One who fills us with content and opens our hearts to feel His goodness.
The world will continue to challenge the source of our strength. But Jesus will help us overcome! He overcame the cross and returned from death to show God through Him. The tiny baby born to die, lives because of Christmas!
God has given us the GIFT of His Son. If we focus on what is GOOD, Christ will help us clearly see what needs to be noticed. He will help us fix our eyes on the compassion of His kindness and surely remind us there are MANY ways to receive the King of Kings. ♥
Glory to God in the highest! He is HERE because HE LOVES US!
Dear God, thank you for moments to feel the presence of PEACE. Forgive us when we forget to welcome the calm of our Savior. Guide us in this Christmas season and in the New Year to come. Thank you for blessing us with the gift of Jesus! Hold us together in difficult days of doubt, so we will witness what happens when we TRUST in You. We will receive the love of Christ and keep HOPE in our hearts forever…Thank you, Lord! Amen
