It is Christmas Eve. Darkness covers the gathered crowd. Candles high, cast a warm glow against the darkness. The darkness cannot stand against the light. The light will always win. I feel my heart contract, “No matter how dark things are. I will always cast the light. My light will always be more.”
In the midst of Darkness it is hard to see the light. Your pain and grief makes it hard to look up…
So long ago the same darkness was over the land. The people await the birth of the Messiah. Jesus was Expected. Anticipated. Jesus was needed. Prophesy of promises gave hope.
“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
A long awaited savior is born! Humbly he has come to save a dark and barren world. The light in our darkness, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life” (John 8:12). With God ALL things are possible. No grief, No pain, NOTHING can separate you from the LOVE of God!
Behold the Child is Born. They will call him Emmanuel: God with us. He is our light. Our Hope.
Merry Christmas my sweet friends,
