Wonderful Counselor

At Christmastime, we don’t tend to go to the book of Romans.  However, the concept of Jesus being a Wonderful Counselor is readily discussed because of Isaiah 9:6.  

I fear that we do not want to accept the counsel of Jesus.  His Word is not first in our lives.  We go to those who give us feel good statements to help us through a tough time.  

We need to go to the Savior who humbled Himself and became a helpless baby.  He is the One who knows all and gives all good gifts.  He owes us nothing, yet He gave us everything – His own life.  

As we go into Christmas, let us together worship and praise the name of Jesus.  If you do not know Jesus as your personal Savior, please do not wait.  Do not waste another moment.  

Jesus is worthy and He is worth it.  

Praise His name!

Christmastime

I enjoy many things about Christmas: the decorations, music, family get-togethers.  Christmas can produce many wonderful memories.  However, none of those special times mean much without Jesus Christ being the center of our lives.  

Christ is worthy of that central position.  He bought us with a price (1 Corinthians 6:20; 7:23). Too often we rebel at the thought of being owned by God.   Oh, friend, being owned by God, Who paid with His only Son’s life, is worth everything.

So this during Christmas season, don’t forget to keep Christ at the center of your celebration.  He is worthy and He is worth it.

An Ordinary Sunset

After the brilliant sunsets I have recently seen, I find myself watching for more.  Tonight the colors were more muted, not as bold.  

I find that life has more of those ordinary moments.  We have exciting times on occasion, but not necessarily often.  I have to admit, I tend to prefer the exciting times.  However, God frequently works through ordinary circumstances to bring about extra-ordinary results.  Life is all about Him anyway.

So the next time you feel bogged down with the ordinary, remember that God is working out the extra-ordinary.

Happy Thanksgiving

Psalm 34:8 seems fitting for the day we feast on a big meal with family and friends.  I spent a part of today catching up with family over a delicious meal.

The best gathering are ones where people talk about the goodness of God.  I am blessed to have family that involves God in their lives.  Today I tasted God’s goodness.

Praise His name!

Thankfulness and Praise

During the thanksgiving season we often take time to reflect on the blessings that God gives.  I have thought and prayed about thankfulness and praise in the last few years.  Grumbling and complaining come more naturally.  However, no matter how bad life gets, God is still good.  He still gives good gifts.

Praise His name!

Thank You

I started writing over 15 years ago. I wrote because I felt compelled to. Blogs weren’t on my radar then and I wasn’t brave enough to share my writing until a little over a year ago. 

I started sharing this blog with much fear and trepidation. However, I have been blessed by the response. So thank you to all who have supported me. I pray that I may honor and glorify God through writing.
