The big day has arrived. It’s Christmas!
Are you excited? Or, does Christmas mean something less than happiness for you this year? If the latter is you, I understand. I’ve had some tough Christmas seasons in my life in previous years.
There’s something about Christmas that is so special…and at the same time, when life isn’t going the way you wish it would, Christmas seems to magnify that for whatever reason.
I just want to encourage you that if that is you, just know that you are loved. So much, in fact, that God sent His only son to this world for you and me to give us the gift of life. Eternal life! It’s the gift of hope, and it’s available at any time.
I hope that will provide some comfort if you are in a difficult season right now. We get to celebrate the birth of a Savior today, and He’s with us, through it all.
I hope this encourages you, if you’re going through a difficult time right now.
Sometimes, life does not seem – and simply, is not – fair. People turn against you. Plans unravel. Darkness seems to cloud the light.
But, here’s the good news: God is always there for you and that will never change. I hope you’ll know that no matter how difficult the situation might be, God knows where you are and He has a good plan for your life. It’s going to be alright!
2 Thessalonians 2:16a
God our father loves us. He is kind and has given us eternal comfort and a wonderful hope.
God, please bring comfort to everyone impacted by the attacks in Paris.
Please let there be peace on Earth.
Thank you for the hope that only comes from You, no matter what may happen here.
‘Your love is deeper than the ocean, You wash away my brokenness…You are bigger than any battle I’m facing.’
Amen to that. God is in control, even when things in our lives might seem like they’re spinning out of control.
Posting this today for anyone who might need that comfort or perhaps a reminder that God is bigger than the battle you are facing. He is!
The Lord is a refuge for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble.
