And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh.
Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness.
Isaiah 41:10 kjv
Food for thought:
You are holding a cup of coffee when someone comes along bumping into you shaking your arm, which makes you spill your coffee everywhere. Why did you spill the coffee? 🤔 “Well because someone bumped into me, of course!” Wrong answer. You spilled the coffee because there was coffee in your cup.
Had there been tea in the cup, you would’ve spilled tea.
Whatever is inside the cup, will spill out.
Therefore, when life comes along and shakes you (which will happen), whatever is inside you will come out. It’s easy to fake it, until you get rattled.
So we need to ask ourselves… “what’s in my cup?” When life gets tough, what spills over?
Joy, gratefulness, peace, and humility?
Or, anger, bitterness, harsh words, and bad reactions?
Today lets work towards filling our cups with gratitude, forgiveness, joy, words of affirmation; and kindness, gentleness, and love for others.
Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh.
That their hearts might be comforted, being knit together in love, and unto all riches of the full assurance of understanding, to the acknowledgement of the mystery of God, and of the Father, and of Christ; In whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.
Jesus Christ, God’s Gift To Us!
Over two thousand years ago God gave us the gift of His Son, Jesus Christ, who came as a humble child born in a stable among the lowly animals. He did not come to conquer the world but to conquer sin and death. The day He hung on the cross giving His life as punishment for our sins was the greatest gift we could ever receive; for His death on that cross gave us the gift of eternal life, hope and peace through His shed blood. Our greatest gift to Him is when we give our heart to Him, accepting Him as our Lord and Savior. My friends, let us give thanks to our heavenly Father and our Savior, Jesus Christ today and every day for the love and grace they so graciously bestow upon us.
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.
When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost.
Jesus said: “I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.”
I would like to wish each of you, my friends, a very Merry Christmas with family and friends! ~ God’s Blessings to all!
And so it was, that, while they were there, the days were accomplished that she should be delivered.
And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.
The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower.
And the LORD, he it is that doth go before thee; he will be with thee, he will not fail thee, neither forsake thee: fear not, neither be dismayed.
Prayer for Healing of a Broken Heart.
Father, I know You are with me always, even in my darkest place. Lord, I’ve been feeling this heartache for so long. Now, I place myself and my sorrow in Your loving care. Please, lead me out of this sad and lonely place within myself. Turn Your loving kindness towards me, heal my pain, comfort my aching heart, and give me peace and strength. Please, heal my pain and aching heart, renew a spirit of hope within me and raise me up to a life of joy. Please, take my hand and guide me away from all the things that have caused me emotional pain into the light of Your fearless and eternal love. Help me to forgive those who have hurt me. I ask for Your emotional healing so that the clouds in my heart may clear, and I receive love and give love again.
In Jesus Name, Amen.
