Here’s your #HopeNote for the week:
“Therefore, the Lord himself will give you a sign. Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel.” Isaiah 7:14
“For to us a child is born, to us a son is given; and the government shall be upon his shoulder, and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.” Isaiah 9:6
“Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a son, and they shall call his name Immanuel” (which means, God with us).” Matthew 1:23
“And she gave birth to her firstborn son and wrapped him in swaddling cloths and laid him in a manger, because there was no place for them in the inn.”
Christmas is one of my favorite holidays! I hope that you are able to take the time away from work and regular obligations be with your loved ones. It’s an exciting time – decorating our homes, attending the special get together’s and exchanging gifts. Let’s not forget the true meaning of this holiday; the birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Remember this is also a time when many individuals who don’t have close friends or family hurt the most. Be sensitive to that and keep an eye out. If you are that person, I want you to know that you are loved and not alone. Consider serving someone who is less fortunate than yourself. Watch the Lord fill you with His joy and peace. I have done this on many occasions and can tell you there’s nothing greater than being Jesus’ hands and feet extended in someone else’s time of need.
