For some… the Christmas and Holiday Season brings a bit of sadness along with the snow and rain… but, for those who have that feeling of ‘being let down’…by the Grace of God… maybe they can find ‘comfort and joy’ …in…
Isaiah 40:25-31 – “So who will you compare me with? Who is equal to me?” says the Holy One. Look up toward the sky. Who created everything you see? The Lord causes the stars to come out at night one by one. He calls out each one of them by name. His power and strength are great. So none of the stars is missing. Family of Jacob, why do you complain, “The Lord doesn’t notice our condition?” People of Israel, why do you say, “Our God doesn’t pay any attention to our rightful claims?” Don’t you know who made everything? Haven’t you heard about him? The Lord is the God who lives forever. He created everything on earth. He won’t become worn out or get tired. No one will ever know how great his understanding is. He gives strength to those who are tired. He gives power to those who are weak. Even young people become worn out and get tired. Even the best of them trip and fall. But those who trust in the Lord will receive new strength. They will fly as high as eagles. They will run and not get tired. They will walk and not grow weak.
Matthew 11:28-30 – “Come to me, all you who are tired and are carrying heavy loads. I will give you rest. Become my servants and learn from me. I am gentle and free of pride. You will find rest for you souls. Serving me is easy, and my load is light.”
Let us remember that Christmas is all about LOVE. It is the LOVE of God… (John 3:16) from God… to all of mankind… that He would send His Son… the Child Jesus…. to us as His SPECIAL gift… of Love, so that we might have ‘eternal life.’ Jesus Christ came… so that He might ‘lighten our load.’ Jesus died on the Cross for our sins. Jesus
Many Blessings as seek ‘a lighter load.’…….cjlb….12/14/2017
