Another way

“And having been warned in a dream not to go back to Herod, they returned to their country by another route.”

Go back and read Matthew 2:1-12. You know the story of the wise men searching for Jesus. Herod wanted them to report where the so he could worship him. We know that was a lie, the wise men didn’t know. And God had them to go back home another way, not back to Herod.

We search also. Sometimes we are not sure what we are searching for, but then when we understand our journey takes on a new meaning. And that search moves us through dangers seen and unseen. And we meet God time after time again. And in those moments we have joy , unspeakable joy.  But we can’t stay in those moments we have to get back to living, we don’t go back the same way. We go back renewed, reenergized, ready for the journey. Each encounter with God strengthens us. And as we live, we live rejuvenated because of our encounters in prayer. 

This has been a year of uncertainty with the virus but one thing we know- God is. We go stronger into the next year, stronger, with more resolve knowing that God watches, that God does. God watches   us and God keep us safe all because God IS. Blessings of watching what God is doing. enough for now.

He is Still

“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. Of the greatness of his government and peace there will be no end. He will reign on David’s throne and over his kingdom, establishing and upholding it with justice and righteousness from that time on and forever. The zeal of the Lord Almighty will accomplish this” (Is. 9:6,7 NIV).

I think that we forget at times that he is still . . .  Wonderful Counselor . . . Mighty God . . . Everlasting Father . . .Prince of Peace. 
He is who who we can rely on before all else fails,  it when all else fails.. We get guidance from Holy Spirit as how to handle whatever it is. And we wait, and watch. No worry, no fret. Wow. The world needed that so much then. It needs that so much now. We need that so much now. We need to hold on, and watch what God is doing. Merry Christmas! enough for now.

Celebrate Your Life

 I think if we learn to do that one thing- we could have more peace. Celebrate your life. Yes, it's yours, yes there is something to celebrate. It doesn't matter what has not gone as you would like it- you have life and you have another chance. Celebrate God's love for you. And watch what happens. enough for now.
