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.
wow, this blows me away.
a saviour born into man, a helpless babe.
in a lowly stable, into a dirty manger.
i can't imagine putting my own baby into a filthy animal feeding trough, let alone the messiah!
but that's how it was planned out.
from the beginning of time.
a humble beginning for the Lord of Lords.
how awesome a beginning.
but that's not even the most exciting part of the story.
this God man grew... and lived a perfect life.
something no one else can and will ever do.
then, He died.
so we have the chance to live.
what a gift.
a precious gift!
God is good... Christmas is a time to celebrate His birth.
even in the lonliness that many often feel during the holidays you can rest in His peace.
He will comfort like no one ever can.
feel it... accept it.
His peace, love, hope and joy are His gifts to you.
