Taste and See that the Lord is Good!

In this life there will always be trouble. Pain and heartache will come to all those we know and love at some point, in some time, in some way. Despite the intensity and the despair that may come, God is always faithful.  For every pain, he will bring healing, be it in this world or when we get to heaven.  For every heartache, he will bring joy.  They may not come in our time, nor may we see the end of the tunnel in sight, but that is where trust comes into play.  Do you trust that the Lord is holding you?  Do you trust that he is bigger than the pain or heartache?  Do you trust that he will see you through and bless you with endurance and strength to make it through?  Do you trust he will rescue you and shelter you in the shadow of his wings?

O my friends, taste and see that the Lord is good!  Good indeed and full of mercy and grace.  He is with you and he will never leave you nor forsake you, and he will help you through all that he brings you to.  Ask and you shall receive.  Trust and you will believe!

Blessings and all my love ❤

Blessed are those who have learned to acclaim you,
who walk in the light of your presence, LORD.
~ Psalm 89:15 ~

Oh, to praise the Lord heart and soul!
Tis the sweetest gift!

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

Celebration of Christ’s birth
Beautiful Savior

Christmas Haiku 2015 Countdown 19

After they had heard the king,
they went on their way,
and the star they had seen when it rose
went ahead of them until it stopped
over the place where the child was.
When they saw the star, they were overjoyed.
On coming to the house,
they saw the child with his mother Mary,
and they bowed down and worshiped him.
Then they opened their treasures
and presented him with gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh.
~ Matthew 2:9-11

Behold the Glory
Star of wonder and delight
Hope for the nations

Jesus is the Reason!

For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given:
and the government shall be upon his shoulder:
and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The mighty God,
The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.
~ Isaiah 9:6

But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid; for behold,
I bring you good news of great joy which will be for all the people;
for today in the city of David there has been born for you a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.
~ Luke 2:11

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son,
that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.
~ John 3:16

Jesus is the Reason

Christmas day is here at last

With presents and decorations galore

The tree stands aglow

Twinkling like the stars in the night sky

A reminder of the that one blessed eve

Over 2,000 years ago

The angels appeared to the shepherds below

Telling the birth of Immanuel

He is the ultimate gift and Savior to the lost world

Born in Bethlehem, a lowly babe

Sent from Heaven above

God gave us His only Son to live and die

A sacrifice for all mankind

Though presents are lovely

And stockings filled with goodies bring a smile

Remember that fateful night long ago

He is the reason we celebrate

The magi came from afar to worship and adore

They brought Him gifts of frankincense, gold and myrrh

The gifts we give to one another are thoughtful indeed

But the best gift we can give

Is the message of eternal life and love

Give the true gift of Christmas this year

Give the message of God’s mercy and grace

The promise of forgiveness of sins

A hope for an eternal life spent with Him

*****************************************************************************

 God bless and keep you and your family always, and may you have the courage to share the love and sacrifice of Christ on this blessed Christmas day!
